Pie dough scraps from cutting a 10-inch pie
Melted butter, to taste
Granulated sugar
Cinnamon
Nutmeg or other spices of your choice
Jam or preserves, for dipping
Procedures
1. Collect your pie dough scraps. They may already be in slivers; if not, put them together into one clump, and roll out. It’s OK if the dough looks slightly lumpy when rolled out.
2. Slice the dough into “fries”, approximately the size of fast food restaurant-style fries.
3. Place the cut “fries” on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
4. Brush with as little or as much butter as you’d like using a pastry brush.
5. Sprinkle with sugar, cinnamon, and any other spices you’d like (I used nutmeg).
6. Bake in a preheated 375 oven for 10 minutes, or until crispy around the edges.
7. If you’re going for extra cute points, cut pillow boxes in half for a sweet presentation.
8. If desired, affix labels.
9. Serve in the assembled pillow box halves with jam on the side for dipping.
