Cinnamon and Sugar Pinwheels
Posted by Co-creator Jessica CribbsLadies and Gentlemen, I give you…..a holiday tradition.
These lovely delicacies, are simple and easy…and something my mother always made with the scraps from her pie crust at Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Ok, I’m getting a little ahead of myself and skipping over Halloween…but my brain is on November and December…my favorites.
I do bake…thank you mom. My children always help me make these. They know when I am using pie crust for anything, these are a given. Heck, I’ve been known to just make pie crust specifically for these!
1 Pie Crust (Homemade or Store Bought)
1/2 Stick Butter
1/2 c Sugar
1/4 c Cinnamon
1 Roll out your favorite pie crust (or leftover trimmings from the apple one you made for the party yesterday)
2 Thinly slice the stick of butter and lay them randomly on the rolled out crust
3 Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar to your liking
4 Roll it up and cut into pieces
5 Place the pieces cut side down on a greased cookie sheet
6 Bake at 350 for 10-15 minutes (depending on how thick you cut them)
This recipe is so simple, I’m sure it’s been done for ages. I’d love to hear about your modifications or added ingredients to the simple treat!
Pretty little fingerprints…like I said, the kids love to help.
Use more or less ingredients…whatever you choose will work! Just be sure you have enough butter. :)
Cut your pieces about 1/2″ to 1″ thick
The finished product. Perfect with a cup of coffee!
