Tips

Extra Pie Crust

Extra Pie Crust

If you have any extra pie crust left over, roll it out and spread some cinnamon and sugar over the top. Roll up and cut into 1/2-1 inch slices and bake them while you are baking your pie. Check them regularly so they don't get too brown. Once they are a light golden brown remove from oven and cool. Nice change on a snack idea.
