Expert Tips

A green jalapeño or serrano chile can be used in place of the red jalapeño.

Place the leftover pie crust pieces on a cookie sheet and sprinkle them with cinnamon and sugar. Bake the pieces at 375°F for 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown. Break up the pieces and serve them over canned apple pie filling.
