Pie Crust Cinnamon Rolls

I have my Mom to blame for this post.

It all started last week when a storm came through during the wee hours of the morning. We sleep fine through the strong rain and thunder but my parents had a little misfortune as lighting hit a big tree sending it down onto their house. This led to them fleeing their upstairs bedroom. They are ok but were a little shaken up. The tree did significant damage to the roof and a limb arrowed through the ceiling of a spare room. All of this required them to loose power for two days until they could get the tree off the house and fix the power lines. 

My parents emptied their freezer and refrigerator and distributed foods to me and my brothers home. They did not want most of the food back and said we could do what we wished with it. That was dangerous because one of the the items was pie crust (among other goodies). 
I’m one of those people that would rather eat the crust of the pie instead of the filling. 

I had a sweet tooth (nothing new) and decided to use the rolled pie crust and make some little pie crust cinnamon rolls

They were so easy to make and made the perfect snack after we got settle down for some night time TV. 

Want to make some? Here is how I did it.

  • Unroll the dough.
  • Brush with melted butter.
  • Coat with a sugar and cinnamon mixture.
  • Roll the dough back and cut into pieces.
  • Place on a cookie sheet (sprayed or lined with non stick foil or paper). 
  • Brush with butter again. (You can add more sugar and cinnamon if you wish)
  • Bake 350 for 15-20 minutes or until lightly browned. 
I thought they tasted best after they had cooled completely then I made a dipping glaze with powered sugar and a splash of milk. 

We finished these off because starting next week, I’m going back strict to my diet as I have put on a few pounds that I am not so happy about. 
Being on stay at home orders has made it hard not to snack all day long. I have to get back to disciplining myself to healthy eating habits. 
I have a month supply of Nutrisystem foods ready to go.
