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)
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
LET'S STAY in touch!
