Cinnamon and Sugar Pinwheels

Posted by Co-creator Jessica CribbsLadies and Gentlemen, I give you…..a holiday tradition.

These lovely delicacies, are simple and easy…and something my mother always made with the scraps from her pie crust at Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Ok, I’m getting a little ahead of myself and skipping over Halloween…but my brain is on November and December…my favorites.

I do bake…thank you mom. My children always help me make these. They know when I am using pie crust for anything, these are a given. Heck, I’ve been known to just make pie crust specifically for these!



1 Pie Crust (Homemade or Store Bought)

1/2 Stick Butter

1/2 c Sugar

1/4 c Cinnamon


1 Roll out your favorite pie crust (or leftover trimmings from the apple one you made for the party yesterday)
2 Thinly slice the stick of butter and lay them randomly on the rolled out crust
3 Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar to your liking
4 Roll it up and cut into pieces
5 Place the pieces cut side down on a greased cookie sheet
6 Bake at 350 for 10-15 minutes (depending on how thick you cut them)
7 Devour
This recipe is so simple, I’m sure it’s been done for ages. I’d love to hear about your modifications or added ingredients to the simple treat!

Pretty little fingerprints…like I said, the kids love to help.

Use more or less ingredients…whatever you choose will work! Just be sure you have enough butter. 🙂

Cut your pieces about 1/2″ to 1″ thick

The finished product. Perfect with a cup of coffee!

  1. Thanks for sharing that Teresa! Of course, as a child, I thought my mother was the most brilliant, innovative mom ever! Now, I understand it wasn’t just her. I have since heard of other moms…then and now..putting in fun ingredients too!
