These Crisp Cinnamony Cookies And Dip Are A Treat From Our Childhood
Pie crust cookies only happened once in a while when I was growing up. My mom didn’t bake pies much, but when she did, she cut the trimmings into strips, sprinkled them with sugar, and baked them. All of us kids thought they were even better than pie!!
These pie crust cookies are made from some pie crust dough that I made specifically for these tasty cookies, and if that isn’t delicious enough, here’s a scrumptious honey butter dip with cinnamon that is perfect for dipping. The combination will amaze and delight you!
These yummy little snacks begin with my old tried and true Pattycake Pie Crust Recipe. This pie crust recipe has been shared and shared! It’s an old-fashioned recipe that uses oil instead of butter or shortening, so it’s quick and easy to make. If you’re making a pie, pat it in place in the pie pan.
Here’s How To Make Some Yummy Pie Crust Cookies
I rolled out the dough for these cute cookies between two pieces of wax paper, and it worked great! This dough is very forgiving, and it doesn’t get tough when you reroll it, so I cut a lot of cookies from a single recipe! The best thickness is about 1/8th inch to 1/4 inch.
I have quite a collection of cookie cutters from fifty years in the kitchen, and I love every one of them. I used to sell Ann Clark cookie cutters in our retail store, and her company is amazing!
There are so many cute ones to choose from; what a fun idea to collect unusual ones on a trip or give them as a tie-on on Christmas or wedding shower gifts.
The cookies obligingly released from the paper with ease! I gathered up the leftover dough and kept rolling until I ran out, switching to a small circle cutter at the end to use up almost every bit!
I thought the stars were a happy shape, but hearts, leaves, or bunnies would be fun pie crust cookies, too. Cut out some snowmen, and use sparkling white or silver sprinkles!
Pie crust cookies would be a wonderful project with the kids before they return to school! And store-bought pie crust will work well, too, if you are in a pinch for time! Aren’t we all at times? 😉
Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper and place the cookies on it. You can space them closely because they spread very little. You can brush the cookies with milk, cream, or melted butter to make the cinnamon sugar or sprinkles stick. You can even use an egg wash if you prefer.
Bake them in a 425-degree oven for about ten minutes but watch closely since every oven is different. Your pie crust cookies should start getting a golden brown edge when ready to come out of the oven!
Let’s Make Some Scrumptious Cinnamon Honey Butter
You will find so many ways to enjoy this delightful spread! It is so easy to make with just four ingredients I bet you have in your cupboard! It’s perfect as a dip for these piecrust cookies but don’t stop there! It’s amazing on toast, biscuits, pancakes, and licked from a spoon!
Beat together one-half cup (one stick) of butter softened to room temperature, one-half cup of powdered sugar, one-half cup of honey, and 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon. That’s it! Keep it in the fridge but set it out to soften a bit when you’re ready to eat it.
