The pie crust is always my favorite part of the pie, so when I saw this idea at Baked Perfection, I was excited to try it, and these little treats did not disappoint!


The politically correct way of making these is to use leftover pie dough, however, I did not go this route.


I started with pre-made store bought refrigerated pie crusts to test out this recipe.


Roll out your pie dough, or in my case, unfold it onto a lightly floured surface.


Mix up some cinnamon sugar; I use 1/4 c of sugar to 1 tsp. of cinnamon.


Lightly brush a small amount of melted butter across the  pie crust, and then sprinkle with the cinnamon sugar.
Then use some little cookie cutters to cut out the shapes you want.
Bake on a lightly sprayed cookie sheet at 400 degrees for 10 minutes, and that’s it.
Watch the time though, since oven heat varies.

 


Even my picky eater liked these. They are lightly sweet with a hint of saltiness, and a little crunchy like a cracker, yum!
Hope you enjoy!
Blessings,

  1. I also do this with leftover pie crust. I will give both of my daughters a little ball to make cookies with. Then I will sprinkle them with sugar and cinnamon. Seeing this put a smile on my face, thanks!

  2. My kids would love these.

  3. Margo, those came out so cute and they are so great for the kiddo’s.

  7. Sometimes the simplest ideas are the best. Pinned this, also now following you on FB (your FB button isn’t working but I found you anyway.)

  8. I think that this sounds like a fun activity for the kids to do tomorrow!!! I was trying to figure out what would entertain my son and his friend and I think that this makes sense to try. If they don’t do it then I think that my son and I will have to make them on Friday. I really need to look for some cute mini cookie cutters. I don’t have enough small ones but I guess I need to add it to the wish list. I can’t wait to taste the final product!!!

  19. What a great and easy recipe! I’ll be using the pie crust not-from-leftover-pie-baking too!! I think this will be a great “snack in the car” when I pick up my granddaughter from school on Fridays!! I bet she would love to help make them too!

  20. Oh I have got to try these.. they look delicious! thank you for posting! :) Robyn

  21. I make these for my daughter as Mom always made them for us when I was growing up. Of course, her crust was from scratch and she just used the leftover. I just buy the crust and don’t even make the pie! I use a pizza cutter to slice them up before baking.

  22. My mom used to make something similar when we were kids. Thanks for the memory! Yours are so cute cut into shapes!

  23. This is such a creative idea. I would love for you to stop by and link up at my linky party via: ourdelightfulhome.blogspot.com
