A yummy treat for the extra pie crust!

When I was growing up and even after I was grown my mother always like to make pecan pie whenever we had a family get together. My mother makes wonderful pecan pie. When we would make the crust she would always have a little bit left. She never liked to throw it out so this is what she would do with it:

Here are the scraps leftover.

Roll it out a little bit without handling it too much so it doesnt get tough.

The put little pats of butter on it and sprinkle it liberally with sugar and cinnamon. Bake this for about 10 minutes and it is so good and you dont feel like your wasting anything. Neat!
