Did you ever see or taste something so delicious and painfully simplistic, you wonder how in the heck you never thought of it sooner??? Yeah. Me too. That's how I feel about these.
I saw them in a magazine and instantly thought, "What a freakin' fabulous idea!" and wondered why I hadn't thought of it sooner. My Nana used to bake the scrap pie dough for us when my sister Kathy and I were little....and we sat at her kitchen table and happily munched on them with a glass of cold milk. But it ended there. So, how could I forget about them? So simple. So fun. But then again, the best things in life usually are, right?
Although I would usually make it from scratch, I cheated and used refrigerated pie dough.....so shoot me.
Unwrap and roll out each pie dough section, then cut them into "Fry-sized" pieces. I wanted to use a fluted pastry cutter, but was horrified to discover that I DON'T OWN ONE. How did this happen??
Then I sprayed the cut sections with butter (or you could just melt butter and brush it on), and sprinkle generously with sugar and cinnamon.
Pop them into a pre-heated oven at 375 degrees for between 12 and 20 minutes (depending on your oven) You want them to be golden brown and a little crispy.
Isn't this the silliest thing you've ever seen?? I used canned apple pie filling as a dipping sauce and it was absolutely scrumptious! Like a little bite of apple pie. Only cuter. You could use any type of pie filling really.....pumpkin, lemon, blueberry, cherry, etc.
