Pie crust - Evaporated milk - Cinnamon

Hello everyone,
I need some help. I have a left over of unbaked pie crust and evaporated milk. I want to do something like, brush evaporated milk on the crust, put a mix of sugar and cinnamon all over, roll and cut like you would sushi and bake in the over to make some sort of cookies but I don't know exactly what to do.
Like, add cinnamon rather then sugar. Or maple syrup, or I don't know.

It's an idea that started while making pie tonight. I know it's do-able, just not sure how.

I'm doing this to eat while drinking my chai latte tomorrow and maybe bring some to friends.

Thank you.

  1. Is it opened evaporated milk? Or you're just trying to get rid of it?

    It sounds a lot like something my mom used to do. When I was a kid, when my mom made pies, she'd take the leftovers, roll them out, spread them with softened butter and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. Then she'd roll it up, slice it, and bake each "spiral" cookie until they were cooked through and slightly crisp. She always called them snickerdoodles, because that's what her grandmother called them. Slice them thinner though (not like sushi) so the crust cooks through.

    I guess you could replace the butter with the evap. milk if it's opened and you just want to use it up. But I wouldn't do too much, just a coat for the sugar and cinnamon to stick too. Too much of the milk would leak and possibly burn to the pan.

      It's already opened and I don't know what to do with it.

      Thank you :)

        This looks delicious!

        I don't have cream cheese though, but I'm saving it for later :) Thank you

          It's for a cream cheese crust but you can use the crust you have.
