Some of you may know them as “roly poly” but my grandmother always called them dumpsie bite and the name stuck. She made hers out of leftover pie crust because in her time, nothing ever went to waste. My mother followed in her tradition, as did I.
There is always a bit of crust left over after it’s been put in the pie pan and trimmed, so why waste it?
How to make a dumpsie bite…
Combine the leftover bits of pie crust then roll out flat. Depending on how much crust you have, is how big your dumpsie bite will be.
Spread butter evenly over the rolled out crust.
Sprinkle brown sugar over that.
Roll it up jelly roll fashion.
Seal the ends and put the dumpsie bite in a pie plate – bending it if necessary to get it to fit.
Bake it in the oven along with your pie and you’ve got a tasty treat to have with a glass of milk.
