Chocolate Rollups


Yummy Chocolate Rollups from SimplyDeliciousLiving.TV

When I was growing up, my Mom taught me how to bake a variety of delicious pies.  After baking, we’d always  have some leftover pastry dough.  My Mom would mix all the dough scraps together,  roll it out, and then spread butter over the top of the dough.  We’d then sprinkle a mixture of cinnamon and sugar generously over the top, roll the dough, and cut the long tube into 1″ circles.  We’d place the circles on a greased cookie sheet and bake them in the oven at 350 degrees for approximately 5-10 minutes until lightly brown.  Once they cooled, we’d enjoy as is and/or with a dab of butter.  Simply Delicious!   Here’s a great variation on that recipe made with chocolate morsels, almonds, cinnamon and apples that you can enjoy for a breakfast pastry, snack or dessert!  – Maryann
