Cinnamon Sugar Cigars

I had some pie crust left over from when I made buttermilk pie. I didn't want it to go to waste. I remembered when my friend's mom was here last summer and she made these amazing rolls with leftover pie dough and cinnamon and sugar. I decided I wanted to try and recreate those rolls. They turned out great and smelled fantastic!

Cinnamon Sugar Cigars

1 unbaked 9 inch buttermilk pie shell, cut into 5 or 6 lengths
1/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 egg, lightly beaten with water
flour for dusting

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

Sift together cinnamon and sugar until there are no lumps.

Roll each length of dough into a ball and roll out on a lightly floured board to 1/4 inch (approx) thickness. Spread cinnamon and sugar mixture on each round and roll to a cigar shape.

Lightly brush each cigar with egg wash and sprinkle with remaining cinnamon and sugar. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes until golden brown.

Esi, I should remember not to look at your posts when I'm hungry! This is another terrific recipe! Actually, my husband would think you are a goddess! His mom used to make what he called crust pie with the left over crust when she made actual pies. She'd take the left overs and create a cinnamon sugar dessert out of it. Truly, he would absolutely LOVE this! YUM!
