Pie Crust Cinnamon Rolls are just wonderful. These lovely treats just seem to melt in your mouth when you eat them. The pie crust is flaky, the cinnamon sugar mixture on top of a layer of butter adds lovely sweetness and crunch because of the crystallization of the sugar. These luscious treats are  great for breakfast or as a snack. They were certainly satisfy any sweet tooth craving you have.

When we were growing up, Mom always used to use leftover pie dough to make a cinnamon roll. We always fought over who would get the cinnamon rolls. Sometimes one of my brothers would get their hands on it and the whole thing would be gone in an instant! I never understood why Mom didn’t just make up a batch of pie crust cinnamon rolls sometimes, but she never did. She only made them up with the leftover scraps of dough.

They are so easy to make. She would roll out the extra dough, then spread it with butter, a cinnamon-sugar mixture, and then roll it up jelly-roll style and place it on a pan and bake it along with the pies she was making. I have also spread the mixture lightly with butter, then any kind of jelly, then sprinkled lightly with cinnamon-sugar. They are wonderful made that way, too.

Here is my original pie crust recipe with instructions. Use this to begin with and then follow the directions below for the cinnamon roll.

You can see the flakiness of the crust. I love the swirls in the cinnamon roll. Such rich cinnamon flavor. Yum, yum.

 

Here’s what I did.

Spread the pie crust with softened or melted butter.

Sprinkle cinnamon-sugar mixture over top of the butter. You can spread it with jelly or preserves if you like first, and then spread cinnamon-sugar mixture over top.

Here I’m rolling up the pie crust in a jelly-roll fashion. Keep rolling and binding the roll together tightly.

    This is like the delux version of what my grandmother used to do. she would cut the dough into strips and rub them with cinnamon sugar and then twist them and bake them off. :-)
