When I was a kid, I loved when my grandma would make a pie. Not so much because of the pie itself (unless it was apple), but because of what she would do with the leftover crust. She’d sprinkle it with cinnamon and sugar, then bake until it was golden brown.
If you’re a pastry fan, like me, the crust can be the best part. And when sprinkled with a little cinnamon sugar, it’s the perfect afternoon treat. These days, I enjoy it with a cup of tea or coffee, but back then, milk did the trick.
Pie Crust with Cinnamon and Sugar
pie crust scraps
Preheat oven to 375F. Arrange pie crust on parchment-lined baking sheet. Sprinkle first with cinnamon, then with sugar (do the cinnamon first so it doesn’t burn). Spread pieces out to allow even baking, then bake until golden-brown, about 11-15 minutes.
Cool completely before eating.
