favor-“ette”: leftover dough scraps = best treat ever

If you ever find yourself with leftover dough scraps – from pie crust, phyllo or puff pastry….

DO NOT THROW THEM AWAY!!!!

Wrap them in plastic, store in the fridge and when you have some time, bake them into the best treats ever:

cinnamon sugar puff pastry scraps

Simply brush with some melted butter or margarine, sprinkle with cinnamon sugar and bake till golden brown.

Bake puff pastry (shown here) at 400 degrees; phyllo and pie crust at 350-375.

I bet these would be great savory treats too – just swap out the cinnamon sugar for some finely grated parmesan.

Good, right? And addictive too – just so you know….

    When I was little and my mom was baking a pie, she’d always bake the extra dough scraps with cinnamon and sugar on them just for me.Thanks for the reminder Sheri.
    Love,

      Now that’s love – I did the same with these for Chelsea (using vegan butter, of course!) xo

    My mom always did this too. Growing up working class we saved every scrap.

      I think that much (if not most) of the best sweet and savory goods came from some ancient “re-use” of every ounce of food. Of course now it’s all fancy-like….
