These are a great way to let kids learn to bake. When you are trimming your pie crust, ball up the leftover dough and let them roll it out. It doesn't have to be any particular shape or size as long as it's about the same thickness you would use for a pie crust.
Now sprinkle it with sugar and cinnnamon.
Place it in the most ancient, beat up small pan you own. (good grief)
Put it in the oven next to your pie. I usually pull mine out after 5-7 minutes (when it starts to brown on top).
Hot, fresh cinnamon pastry!
I loved the cinnamon rolls as much as the pie when I was little!
Make a lot of smaller ones (cigarette size) to serve on the side of some butter pecan ice cream for an elegant and easy adult dessert. OR
Add chopped nuts before you roll it up. OR
Drizzle the top with powdered sugar and milk icing.
