Pie Time

 Pie comes in different shapes.
 Pie comes for breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea time, and any time at all.
If I had to choose it would pie time every day.
Do you love pie?

If there is left over crust when making a pie,
do you make cinnamon pastry sticks?
My mom made them and they were a huge treat.
Oh so many memories wrapped in a cinnamon pastry stick.

To make the cinnamon pastry sticks,
just roll out the extra pie dough,
spread with soft butter,
sprinkle with a mixture of sugar and cinnamon,
and bake at 350 degrees until golden.
Eat them right away with a cup of tea.
Ahhhhh!  delicious!

Your pies look wonderful and the cinnamon pastry scraps sound so yummy!

Ginger said...

Yes I make cinnamon pastry sticks too. Though I've never called them that. I just call them pie crust scraps.

Too hot for pies in this weather!

I like pie -- well, fruit pies and pecan, not so much cream pies -- but it's those pastry sticks that are floating my boat this morning! No time to grab breakfast before PT and those are making me hungry! Lovely photo accompaniments, Marilyn!

My mother always made cinnamon sugar "feathers" with the left over dough. I still make them and love them. But I've never had them with butter and will try that next time as we all know that butter makes everything better :*)

We always made mini cinnamon rolls with the pie crust scraps. Roll it out in as large an oblong as possible, spread with butter, then sprinkle liberally with cinnamon sugar. Roll it up quite tightly in jelly roll fashion, then slice about three-fourths of an inch thick. Place on small baking sheet or a round cake pan (lined with parchment probably safest) and bake along with your pie at 425º or so until golden and delicious! Kids and adults alike with love these!
