Cinnamon Roll Cookies

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?
Stay hungry!

  3. My Grandma used to make these for us kids with her scraps of dough whenever she made a pie.
    We loved them... Great memories ! Can't wait to try them. Thanks for shaking this memory loose.
