Happy Christmas Eve!
So you’ve made all these pies for Christmas and there’s some crust dough left over. What do you do? Do you throw it out? Do you put it in the freeze for later use?
Or you could make cinnamon rolls out of it for Christmas breakfast.
You only need four (4!) ingredients and I bet you have it already in your pantry just waiting to be used.
They are very simple and easy to make and will go in a flash.
I tried it out on Bryan a few weeks ago, but learned from my first mistake – melting the butter and brushing it on to the pie crust. So DON’T MELT THE BUTTER.
They came out okay, but could have been better.
Second time around, they came out way better.
Pie Crust Cinnamon Rolls
3 tablespoons butter, softened
1/4 cup sugar
3 tablespoons sugar
Roll pie crust out into a square that is 1/4 inch tall.
Spread butter all over pie crust.
Sprinkle sugar and cinnamon on butter.
Roll the pie crust tightly.
Cut into 12 slices.
Place on parchment paper on a cookie sheet and bake at 350 for 12 minutes.
So the second thing I did wrong was not tightly roll the pie crust the first time. The tighter the roll, the more the cinnamon and sugar can bind to the layers.
To reiterate: DO NOTMELT THE BUTTER and ROLL TIGHT.
But most importantly enjoy.
You drizzle a wee bit of icing on them, but I thought they tasted perfectly without. The cinnamon definitely comes out and kicks you in the face.
An easy breakfast for the family on a crazy day of cooking. O you could snack on them as you go.
