There always seems to be at least a little bit of leftover crust when you make a pie. This recipe puts those leftover scraps to use! These are great for the family to snack on before the pie is served. My mom used to always make these when I was growing up and I have continued to do it as well. I use a gluten free pie crust recipe and they still come out great! Sometimes I'll spread strawberry jam in with the butter and omit the cinnamon.
- Sprinkle pastry cloth liberally with corn starch or sweet rice flour. Roll out the pie crust very very thin (about 6x12 at 1/8" thick) in a rectangle.
- Brush the soft butter on carefully with a knife (or your fingers) so that it covers the whole rectangle in a thin layer (use more or less butter as needed). Sprinkle the sugar and cinnamon evenly over the butter.
- Roll up from the shorter end. Leave the seam side down and fold the ends under (I usually cut them off and eat them). Then cut into 1 inch pieces and put in an oven safe dish along with your pie (350 degrees works well) and bake for about 20-30 minutes.
- For a very flakey pastry-like crust, roll out dough very thin, then fold it in half multiple times until it is a small square. Then pick up and shape back into a ball and re-roll it out again. Repeat 2-3 times re-sprinkling pastry cloth and rolling pin with corn starch or sweet rice flour in between. For easier handling, split into 3-4 separate balls before rolling out the last time.
