Here’s another French Canadian treat that you’ll find not just this time of year but all the time.  My Gran used to make these but she didn’t roll them up (you’ll see what I mean in a minute) and instead called them the “Cook’s treat” and used the ends of the pastry leftover from making pies.  She’d blast them with heat in the wood stove and we’d eat them together while they were shockingly hot.
My French Canadian family calls them pet de soeurs (this literally translates to Nun’s farts-but don’t let that turn you off and don’t blame me for the name 🙂
Start with a recipe of my pastry and divide it in five pieces.
Roll out and butter (liberally).
Top with a layer of brown sugar and cinnamon.
Roll into a tube.
Cut into 1/2 inch pieces.
Bake on a cookie sheet (either lined with a silicone sheet or parchment paper) for 15-20 minutes (until the bottoms are browned) at 350.
Beautiful treat, inspite of the name 🙂
