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!
