These. Are. Lethal. So lethal, that instead of carrying mace around Chicago, I'll just throw these around.
You know I don't bake. I mean I never bake. But these are so easy and so delicious that I just had to do it. My Aunt Deb and Uncle Mike send Christmas Cookies each year and these are the first I go after. Plus, I was thinking a lot about my Nonnie Connie lately and I remember making these with her and when had left over pie crust from Thanksgiving. They are so flaky and buttery and DELICIOUS.
Get prepared pie crust of your liking. I like Pillsbury. Next, take 2-3 tablespoons of room temp, unsalted butter and smear all over the pie crust.
Next, sprinkle sugar and cinnamon all over the top. I usually do 1 teaspoon of cinnamon per 1/2 cup of white sugar, but you can totally add more cinnamon if you'd like. Lastly, I sprinkle just a touch of sea salt on it.
Roll up the dough...
...and cut the dough with a sharp knife.
Bake according to the pie crust package instructions. I baked mine for 12 minutes at 450 degrees. Just cook until nice and golden brown.
I love how these look. They look crazy. Like they should be at the Mad Hatter's tea party.
Oh yeah...did I mention how delicious they are?
