You’ve made Thanksgiving pie, it looks beautiful, and you have a small handful of pastry offcuts left, now what?
Let me tell you what… you need to grab 3 simple ingredients and roll out this to-die-for treat (it might even taste better than your pie).
Warning: Once you try this scrumptious little morsel you will never wonder how to use up leftover pastry scraps again!

This is how to use up leftover pastry scraps:
1. Roll out pastry. Generously spread butter all over. Sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon (don’t be shy).
2. Roll into a log.
3. Put in a parchment lined pan, and place in the oven next to your pie. Bake until slightly brown and oozing with brown sugar (about 25 mins on 350).
4. Allow to cool a few minutes, slice into discs and serve.
You can make this delicious cinnamon roll with as much or as little pastry as you have left over. I’m not gonna lie I’ve even just made one with a whole batch of pastry!
