One of my favorite things about the holiday season is pie crust. The pies themselves are mostly, meh, for me. But pie crust! Now that can be turned into something amazing without having to add cooked fruit to it. Cooked fruit is a whole other topic of discussion but, mostly, it just makes me sad. So mushy.
But back to our pie crust and these amazing but simple delights we call Pie Crust Cookies. We’re so clever, aren’t we? Pie Crust Cookies are the simplest thing to make – especially if you use store-bought pie crust. I usually make my own, but this year was just a good year for buying anything pre-made that I could get my hands on, so freezer crust it is.
Roll out the pie crust just like you would for a pie crust; nice and thin. But in this case you don’t need to worry about making it perfectly round. After it’s rolled out I use a pastry brush to brush softened (not melted) butter all over it. Not too thick, just enough to allow some sugar and cinnamon to adhere. Then sprinkle sugar and cinnamon all over that until you’ve got a good, even coating. Bake at 400 for about 10 minutes – just until the crust is lightly browned. So yummy!
Do you guys make something like this? What’s your family’s version?
