Every Thanksgiving I am responsible for the pumpkin and apple pies since I’m the only one that can seem to come close to reproducing the super flaky and awesome crust my mom made. (Thank goodness I paid attention when she baked pies!)
This year I had a little bit of pie crust dough left over. Every time this happens, I always make pie crust roll-up thingies. My mom used to make them. Basically you roll the dough out into a rectangle then scatter little pieces of butter all over it. Next you sprinkle sugar and cinnamon over the entire thing, then roll up the dough, starting at the long end so it sort of looks like a jelly roll. Then you cut them into about 1″ long pieces, place them on a cookie sheet and bake until they are golden and flaky.
Warning: they are addictive.
