Pie Crust Cookies


If you're like me, when you make pie you probably always have some remnants and pieces left over. What to do with them?

Make cookies. 

When I was younger, my mom would make little cookies with leftover pie crust. My sisters and I loved them. We all do the same thing now with our children.

Just roll out the remaining pieces of crust, cut them into fun shapes or just whatever shape you can roll them into. Place on a cookie sheet and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. Bake at 400 for about 8-10 minutes.

They're delightful little bites of flaky goodness.

I taught the activity girls at church (8-11 year olds) how to make pie right before Thanksgiving. They each made a pie crust to take home. In the course of my preparations, I made turnovers and pie for them to try and I used one pie crust just to make these cookies. The were a hit and the girls loved them.

My pie recipe makes about 15 pie crusts and is awesome. You can see it here
