Les Pets de Soeurs

These are a very commonly eaten amuse gueule in Quebec. They can be made with puff pastry and other sweet, store-bought pastries but they're usually made with left over pie dough.

I had to laugh at the description on About.com for this photo; it's called 'Canadian Fart Recipe 1.'.... We have more than one fart recipe?? Who knew?

If you want a pie dough recipe, scroll down to the previous post for Tarte a l'onion.

These are the simplest things to make. Just roll out the pie dough to 1/4" thickness. Slather with BUTTER - yes, butter. Don't deprive yourself. Everyone knows French women don't get fat...

Sprinkle liberally with brown sugar, cinnamon and a couple pinches of ground cloves. I dust very, very gently with salt because it enhances the sweet.

Roll the dough tightly into a log. Seal the open end with a bit of water or egg white if you have some sitting around... Ok. water...

Slice into 1/2 inch wheels. Bake on an ungreased cookie sheet for 10 minutes at 350 F.

Eat when warm - careful, the sugar is HOT when it comes out of the oven. Yummy with milk. Or wine. Or beer. But, as they're nun's farts and all, maybe milk is the most pure...
