Ever make something and end up with leftover pastry dough? Same here. I don’t like wasting ingredients, so I decided to turn it into a dessert. This is a quick recipe, and only uses a few ingredients.
Since this was made using leftovers/scraps of pastry dough, I’m not going to include measurements. Just add the ingredients as you see fit!
- Leftover pastry dough
- Butter (room temperature is best)
- Chocolate syrup
- Gather all of the leftover pastry dough and ball it up. Wrap in plastic wrap and put in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
- Add some flour to a cutting board or counter and place the ball of dough down. Roll out with a rolling pin until it’s even and about 1/4 inch thick. Add more flour if the dough is sticking.
- Spread a thick layer of butter on the pastry dough and then drizzle chocolate syrup over that.
- Sprinkle a generous amount of cinnamon and sugar over the chocolate syrup layer.
- Roll the pastry dough, starting from the bottom. Once rolled, cut into 1 inch pieces.
- Place onto a greased baking sheet and sprinkle more cinnamon and sugar over the top. Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes.
- Let cool and enjoy!
There you have it! Little dessert pinwheels.
