These are one of my favorite festive holiday treats! My mom would always make these with the extra pie dough we had and they are the best 🙂 It’s like a cinnamon roll that’s so fast and bite sized. They are always a hit!
For the dough:
-1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
-1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, cut into cubes
-3/4 tsp sea salt
-1/4 cup ice cold water
For the center:
-raw cane sugar
In a food processor, process the flour, butter & sea salt. Then add in the water & process until it turns into a ball. Form it into a ball on a floured counter. Then push the dough down into a disc & cover with plastic. Store it in the fridge about 30 minutes. (You don’t have to chill it, but it just makes the dough easier to work with, either way!)
Once the dough has chilled, roll it with a rolling pin (or a wine bottle if you don’t have one) into the best rectangle shape you can get. Spread the inside with a layer of melted butter. Then sprinkle it with as much brown sugar & cinnamon as you’d like. Roll it like you would a cinnamon roll into one long log. Cut into about 2in slices.
Grease a dish (i used 8×8). Place the pinwheels in there. Spread with more melted butter & sprinkle with raw cane sugar! Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes until golden brown on top! Enjoy!
