Pie Dough Cookies

Did you make my Pecan Pie yet?


Do you ever wonder what to do with the scraps of pie dough that are left over after you make your pie? When I made my Pecan Pie this week I wondered the exact same thing. I thought I would try turning them into little cookies and it worked out perfectly. All I did was roll out the scraps and used a small cookie cutter to cut out shapes. I then brushed them with some egg whites and sprinkled them with cinnamon sugar. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 8 - 10 minutes. I liked them by themselves, but I think they would be delightful with a cup of tea or some coffee.

  4. My grandmother and my great grandmother have been doing this for at least 30 years if not longer....they roll out the pie dough, spread butter on it & then add cinnamon & sugar to it...Next they roll it up like a cinnamon roll & slice it & then bake the rolls....SO delicious!

  5. My mom has been making these with the leftover pie crust for years. Trying spreading jam or jelly on them. Amazing!
