Pie crust is always one of my favorite parts of any pie. It doesn’t matter how tasty the filling is if the crust isn’t good. And frankly, sometimes I just want some pie crust. So, pie crust cookies are fabulous! And they are really easy to make, too. Plus, you get to use cookie cutters, so they are a great alternative to sugar cookies for any holiday—Christmas, New Years, Valentines Day, whatever!
Pie Crust Cookies
1 box refrigerated pie crust such as Pillsbury
2 tbsp melted butter
cinnamon to taste
sugar to taste
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Unroll the refrigerated pie crust and use whatever cookie cutters you’d like to cut out shapes. Place shapes on a parchment lined cookie sheet. Knead any leftover dough together, roll out, and cut more shapes. Repeat until all the dough has been cut into shapes. Brush the top of each cookie with melted butter. Sprinkle cinnamon and sugar on top (I just used McCormick’s pre-mixed cinnamon sugar, but you could mix up your own depending on how much sugar vs. cinnamon you’d like to use). Bake for approximately 17 minutes or until lightly browned.
