Looks like a lot of us had moms and grandmas who put leftover pie crust to good use! Mom and Grandma just rolled the leftover dough into a circle, sprinkled with sugar and cinnamon (no butter) then cut into triangles and rolled up as crescents. Or sometimes they would just spread the dough with a thin layer of jam. Either way, I "kick it up a notch" by drizzling with a simple powdered sugar glaze.

I was looking for something that resembled what my mom and grandma used to make from left-over pie crust when I was a girl. We called ours 'Diddlees' and the ingredients were basically the same except we'd roll out the pie crust, spread it with butter and sprinkle on cinnamon, sugar, and raisins, then roll the crust up and cut it into slices. Then you bake them for 20 mins in a 350F/175C oven. I always looked forward to them whenever my mom baked a pie. They wre perfect with tea! Thanks for sharing. :-)

My Aunt Mary used to make these all the time from leftover pieces of pie crust dough, but we called them Pie Cookies. It's important to roll out the dough very thin. And we always melted the butter and just brushed it on, then sprinkled cinnamon and sugar. Yum!

Thanks for reminding me of these! My kids loved to make them too! We used colored sugars & they were very festive! Also try turning a small, oven-safe bown upside down - then roll out dough large enough to cover it & brush it with butter & sugar - put it sugar side down on the bowl & bake. You'll end up with a sugary crusty bowl. These are GREAT to fill with ice cream!

One of my favorite memories also, which I now do for my granddaughter. Whenever I bake pies, I take the left over crust, roll into a rectangle, cover with butter, sugar & cinnamon, OR grape jelly (my favorite) then roll up jelly roll style, slice into 2" pieces and bake on parchment paper, for easy cleanup, just in case I put too much filling in.

These are soooo yummy and fun to eat. Like another reviewer, we also did this with our leftover pie crusts and used butter flavored spray rather than butter. I've also made this with Splenda and it turned out good. Thanks for the cute idea Dawn.

Just like most of the reviewers wrote, this recipe is a trip down memory lane for me as well....I took the advice from Naples34102 (thank-you) and cut mine into triangles and spread with raspberry jam and rolled it into crescents...so good!
