The baking bug has hit me in a big way in the last few weeks. With Thanksgiving, a gingerbread house adventure (which I’ll share here soon) and preparation for Christmas, I find myself wanting to bake all the time. Today was no exception. I had a hankering for something baked, but not for major preparation and clean up. Pie Crust Cookies were the perfect solution. I’m sharing how I made basic ones here, but you can also search the web for variations on the basic recipe, many of which include honey. Yum!
Ingredients:
Ready-Made Pie Crust
Melted Butter
Cinnamon and Sugar


Directions:
Step 1: Bring your pie crusts out of the fridge and let them get to room temperature. Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees.

Step 2: Roll out the dough on a lightly-floured surface and cut shapes and transfer to a parchment-lined cookie sheet. After the first round of shapes are cut, work the leftover dough back into a ball, roll out and cut more shapes. Repeat until you’re out of dough.

Step 3: Before baking, brush the cookies lightly with melted butter.

Step 4: Sprinkle, generously, with cinnamon and sugar.
Step 5: Bake for 15-20 minutes, until golden brown.

Enjoy! I had to snap this picture quickly – the cookies didn’t last long!

    Thanks!

    My neighbor used to bake pies from scratch and let me use the left-over dough to make this type of cookie. What a great idea for moms and kids, or anyone who’s feeling frazzled and wanting to do holiday baking. You could also bake a pie and get an extra crust for the kids to make cookies from – a revised experience from my childhood!
