Cinnamon Crusties

A sweet cinnamon treat grandma made from extra pie crust

Ingredients:

1 recipe Perfect Pie Crust - No Top
3/8 cup Sugar
1 Tbsp. Cinnamon, more or less to taste
1&1/2 tsps. Butter, optional, melted, but not hot

Directions:

Preheat an oven to 450°F.

Prepare the Perfect Pie Crust - No Top and roll out into a 12" circle.

Sprinkle about 4 heaping teaspoons of the Sugar evenly on the bottom of a 12" round non-stick pizza pan.  Then sprinkle about a third of the Cinnamon evenly over the sugar.  Transfer the pie crust to the pizza pan and press against the sugar and cinnamon.  If using the Butter, rub a thin coating of the melted butter over the dough.  Now evenly sprinkle the remainder of the Sugar then the Cinnamon atop the crust.  Press into the crust.

Cut through the crust in 3 parallel lines, 3" apart, then perpendicular to those lines, cut 3 more parallel lines 3" apart through the crust.  You should have four 3" square pieces in the center surrounded by 12 pieces, 8 nearly square pieces with one rounded side and another 4 triangular pieces with one rounded side in each of the corners.

Bake in the preheated oven for 7 to 9 minutes or just until the crust browns or you smell a hint of the aroma of burnt sugar.  Remove from the oven and while still hot, transfer to a rack or better yet, non-stick aluminum foil to cool.

Notes:

I've tried for years to make these and get them to taste like grandma's, but they were never quite right.  Then grandma came to me in a dream and said, "Put sugar and cinnamon on the bottom too, but don't let it burn."  It made all the difference.

I do not think grandma used the butter, but I added it and I think it helps the sugar to melt before the crust burns.
