My friend gave me this recipe only because it came up in a conversation one day. I thought I would give it a try because it sounded so easy and good. It’s so simple you don’t have to write it down. I don’t care much for the name; it kind of makes these delicious treats sound less appetizing. I created a variation to these treats by adding a nut mixture instead of just the traditional cinnamon and sugar. Maybe I should just call these pinwheels, it’s much better suited.
1 cup ground nuts (pecans, walnuts, or hazelnuts)
¾ cup brown sugar
3 teaspoons cinnamon
½ cup butter (melted)
Mix filling in small bowl. Roll out pie dough into a rectangle, to about ¼ inch thickness.
Spread filling over top, roll up dough tightly. Dampen the ends with water so dough won’t unroll.
Slice into 1 inch slices, lay slices on parchment lined baking sheet.
Bake at 375°F for 12 – 15 minutes until golden brown.
