Grandmas all over the country have long used scraps of unused pie crust dough to make larger versions of these sweet treats. Our miniature version is just the right size--and much easier to assemble!

Ingredients

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F. Place two 12-inch squares waxed paper on work surface.
  • 2
    In small bowl, mix sugar and cinnamon.
  • 3
    On work surface, unroll 1 crust. Brush with butter; sprinkle with half of the cinnamon sugar.
  • 4
    Top with second crust. Brush top of second crust with butter, sprinkle with remaining cinnamon sugar; roll up.
  • 5
    Cut the roll into 12 (1-inch) slices, then press down slightly, and roll individually between the sheets of waxed paper to 1/4-inch slices, replacing waxed paper as needed. Place on ungreased cookie sheets.
  • 6
    Bake 20 to 22 minutes or until golden brown and crisp. Cool on cooling rack.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Keep an eye on the smallest ears that were cut from the ends, and remove them from the cookie sheet before the larger ears if necessary to prevent burning.
  • tip 2
    Store in an airtight container between sheets of waxed paper, and serve within 2 days.
