How To Make cinnamon pinwheels

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 400*
  • 2
    roll out pie crust on a lightly floured surface spread 1/2 a stick of butter on each pie crust Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar over the crust Roll up the crust, folding in the sides as you go Cut them as big as you want, I usually cut them into 1-2 inch pieces.

    Place them on baking sheet and bake for about 10-15 minutes, keeping a close eye on them, you don't want the bottoms to burn. When they are finished, don't let them cool on the baking pan (The butter and sugar on the pan will harden and the pinwheels will stick and break apart when you try to remove them) Transfer immediately to serving plate.

    Mix together the powdered sugar and milk together. And then drizzle this over the pinwheels. You also can add some cocoa powder to this mixture to make a chocolate drizzle and that is fantastic as well.
