|Cinnamon Sugar Flaky Delish!!|
|Left over pie crust dough|
Did you know that the first pie crusts ever made (we're talking hundreds and hundreds of years ago) weren't meant to be eaten AT ALL? Slice of Life Sunday says Middle Eastern civilizations of long-ago made the inedible olive oil-based crust to keep the filling moist while cooking and to prevent spoiling. Man were they missing out!
--Well I certainly didn't want to let my extra pie crust go to waste! No, sir! So I decided to make Cinnamon Sugar Bites. They are so simple to make they should be illegal! (That and the amount of calories are probably horrendous but we won't think about that!)
|Bites in the making|
|Tiered cinnamon sugar bites|
|Look at those flaky, pie crust layers!!|
|Bet you can't eat just one!|
CINNAMON SUGAR BITES
- Leftover pie crust dough
- Melted butter
- Cinnamon Sugar (equal parts cinnamon and sugar)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Roll out leftover pie crust on a floured surface to prevent sticking. Cut off edges to make a rectangle. Divide and cut dough into equal-sized bar shapes. Place on sheet pan sprayed with non-stick spray. Repeat if you have additional leftover dough, making smaller bar shapes to create a tiered bite.
- Brush melted butter on top of the bars then sprinkle liberally with cinnamon sugar.
- Bake for 15-20 minutes until golden brown. Enjoy!
