pie crust sugar cookies

Although I have a DESSERT menu planned for Thanksgiving, I was struggling with what to serve our little guests . . . that is, until I had a thought at 2am this morning . . . 

What about making cookies with pie crust scraps!?! 

It's no extra work, since you'll already have pie crust dough lying around from making pies . . . and the kids will love these cookies, especially perched atop a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Not only are they easy to make, but they are yummy too! The buttery pie crust COOKIE melts in your mouth under the crunchy sugar topping! YUM!

So save your pie dough SCRAPS, and make a little something special for your little guests too!

I used a pumpkin cookie cutter and Fall colored sanding sugar, but I think a turkey and maple leaf cookie cutter would be even more cute! 

Here's what you'll need . . .

Pie Crust (store bought or home-made)
egg wash (one beaten egg with splash of water)
sanding sugars
cookie cutters
rolling pin
flour, for dusting

Here's how . . .

Preheat oven to 425 degrees
Roll out pie crust
Cut out shapes using cookie cutters 
Place cut-outs on cookie sheet

Liberally brush with egg wash

Using a spoon, scoop and shake sanding sugar atop cut-outs
Bake at 425 degrees for 8 minutes

  8. My Mom used to make these for us only they were not as handsome - we didn't care. We crowded around in the kitchen and waited anxiously for them to come out of the oven. We waited for these more than the pie that she had made. Thanks for the warm memory. I had forgotten about them.

    1. I'm so happy that you came by to share your story. You brought a big smile to me this morning!
