I grew up in Kansas. They had a pastry that was called a "Crispy". I was able to find it also in other surrounding states: MO, KY It is a thin crust with cinamon and sugar on it. It does not taste like a pie crust baked, and you cannot taste the shortening in it. Does anyone have a recipe for this?

I grew up in Iowa and we had this pastry as well. The place I found it in Iowa was at the Hy-Vee grocery store. I now live in Austin, TX and found it at H.E.B. grocery store. I am also interested in the receipe. My husband has tried them too and said "you need to get the recipe."

Let me know if you find one.

Thanks!

Could this be a version (or a cousin) of a Pizzelle?

Crispy as I know of is a 10 or 12 inch flour tortilla cut up into 1/8ths (pizza slice style) then deep fried. It puffs up like a pasty. After draining it for a few seconds, dredge in a sugar/cinnamon mixture.

Danish Crispies

SERVINGS: 24
METHOD: Baked
TIME: Prep: 25 min. + chilling Bake: 15 min.

Ingredients:
1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
1/2 teaspoon plus 3 tablespoons sugar, divided
1 cup warm water (110° to 115°), divided
3 egg yolks
4 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup nonfat dry milk powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup cold butter

FILLING:
6 tablespoons butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

TOPPING:
1-1/2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Directions:

In a large mixing bowl, dissolve yeast and 1/2 teaspoon sugar in 1/4 cup water; let stand for 5 minutes. Add egg yolks and remaining sugar and water; mix well.

Combine the flour, milk powder and salt; cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Gradually add to yeast mixture to make a soft dough. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top; cover and refrigerate overnight.

Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface. Cover with a kitchen towel; let rest for 10 minutes. Roll into an 18-in. x 10-in. rectangle; spread with softened butter. Combine sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over butter. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a long side. Pinch edges to seal. Cut into 3/4-in. slices.

Combine topping ingredients; sprinkle some on waxed paper. Place slices, cut side down, on cinnamon-sugar; roll each into a 5-in. circle, turning to coat both sides and adding cinnamon-sugar as needed. Place 2 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Sprinkle tops with leftover cinnamon-sugar if desired. Bake at 350° for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to cool on wire racks.

Yield: about 2 dozen.
