Dabby-Doughs are a type of pastry. They are traditionally made using the remnants of dough leftovers from making a pie, although they can be prepared in large amounts by simply making a batch of pastry dough. The filling of a dabby-dough is typically a mixture of cinnamon and white sugar sprinkled on butter or margarine, rolled, sliced and baked.[1]

There are many different names for this type of confection, including "cinnamon snails", "schnecken", "bumble bees", "pinwheels", "tuzzie-muzzies", "gobblies", "schmekels," "doo-dads" and "mock rugula".
