Cinnamon-Swirl Cookies

We always made just a few of these with the leftover bits of pie dough after making a pie. It took us a while to realize we could make them in their own right. Buttery and crispy, they disappear quickly.

Pie Pastry

Prepare pie pastry. Split in 2 - 4 pieces, flatten each into a round, wrap in plastic, and chill for 30 minutes.

Roll each out thinly and sprinkle generously with cinnamon-sugar mixture.

Roll up tightly, then with a serrated knife, gently cut off cookies about 1/2-inch thick on the diagonal. Lay each spiral on a cookie sheet. Bake at 350 about a half hour until just beginning to become golden-- don't let them go too far or bottoms will be too dark.
