Looks like a lot of us had moms and grandmas who put leftover pie crust to good use! Mom and Grandma just rolled the leftover dough into a circle, sprinkled with sugar and cinnamon (no butter) then cut into triangles and rolled up as crescents. Or sometimes they would just spread the dough with a thin layer of jam. Either way, I "kick it up a notch" by drizzling with a simple powdered sugar glaze. Read More

I was looking for something that resembled what my mom and grandma used to make from left-over pie crust when I was a girl. We called ours 'Diddlees' and the ingredients were basically the same except we'd roll out the pie crust spread it with butter and sprinkle on cinnamon sugar and raisins then roll the crust up and cut it into slices. Then you bake them for 20 mins in a 350F/175C oven. I always looked forward to them whenever my mom baked a pie. They wre perfect with tea! Thanks for sharing.:-) Read More

My Aunt Mary used to make these all the time from leftover pieces of pie crust dough but we called them Pie Cookies. It's important to roll out the dough very thin. And we always melted the butter and just brushed it on then sprinkled cinnamon and sugar. Yum! Read More

Thanks for reminding me of these! My kids loved to make them too! We used colored sugars & they were very festive! Also try turning a small, oven-safe bown upside down - then roll out dough large enough to cover it & brush it with butter & sugar - put it sugar side down on the bowl & bake. You'll end up with a sugary crusty bowl. These are GREAT to fill with ice cream! Read More

One of my favorite memories also which I now do for my granddaughter. Whenever I bake pies I take the left over crust roll into a rectangle cover with butter sugar & cinnamon OR grape jelly (my favorite) then roll up jelly roll style slice into 2" pieces and bake on parchment paper for easy cleanup just in case I put too much filling in.

Just like most of the reviewers wrote this recipe is a trip down memory lane for me as well....I took the advice from Naples34102 (thank-you) and cut mine into triangles and spread with raspberry jam and rolled it into crescents...so good! Read More

Wow. thanks for the recipe and the reminder from my childhood. My mom would make an extra pie crust just to make "cinnamon roll" made just like the jelly roll described, but not sliced until after it bakes and cools (reduces any mess as the sugar is sealed into the roll). Just be sure to use shortening instead of butter if you make it this way. Shortening holds its shape much better. I never liked pies as a child but I sure loved this cinnamon sugar treat. I just never knew so many others also had such great Mom's. Read More

My mother made these every time she made a pie and us kids would stand and wait for them to come out of the oven. They are crisp buttery and sweet. That was over 50 years ago and I just made some for my grandson. Just like I remembered! Thanks! Read More
