Cinnamon Pastry Pinwheels

I’m not really sure what people call these little bite-sized pastries, but I remember having them at a friend’s house several years ago.  She made a large batch of them for a party, and if I recall correctly, they hardly had time to cool completely before they were devoured by the crowd.  This is also a great way to make use of the trimmed pieces of raw pie crust that might otherwise be tossed into the trash.  I made these with the leftover trimmings of pastry dough from last weekend’s Tarte au Sirop D’érable.

To make these sweetly spiced morsels, simply brush small pieces of uncooked pie crust with butter, then sprinkle with a small amount of sugar and cinnamon.  Roll the dough into bite sized pinwheels, and bake at 400 for about 5-8 minutes or until lightly browned.
