Pie Crust Cookies for Dessert.

 Saturday morning and time to make dessert.
Tonight our family gets together for the last 3 months
The recipe is simple.
Sugar, cinnamon, 6 tablespoons butter
and 2 rolls of pre made pie crust.
Set Convection oven to 350 degrees.
 Spread half the butter on the bottom crust.
with a spoon back. Sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon.
Top with second crust and repeat.
 Fold sides in. This will make cookies uniform.
 Roll up the pie crust as compact as possible.
 Slice into 14 to 16 cookies.
About 3/8 inch thick.
Press down with heel of you hand.
This compacts them so they don't fall apart. 
 Bake in oven for 20 to 25 minutes until
light brown and done. Nothing is
worse than doughy pie crust.
I sometimes flip them over for the last 5 minutes.
Cool on racks.
The house will smell wonderful for the day.
Easier than deep cleaning.
I made 4 batches .
Forget birthday cakes.
Try pie crust cookies with
homemade ice sundaes.
This was a Thanksgiving and Christmas
tradition in our house.
I got up early to make them for the kids.
A great way to start the day.
Now the grand kids  can taste the past.


  1. They look delicious! We sometimes make these with frozen pastry dough--the Pepperidge Farm frozen dough. Yummy and crispy, too.

  2. I have never heard of this recipe, but want to try it! I make pie crust cookies out of the leftover edges whenever I make a pie - just take the odd shapes, place on baking sheet and prick with a fork, and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar and bake. I think I might try your recipe on Christmas morning - the smell with get them out of bed for sure! (I love your comment, better than deep cleaning, lol)

  3. Hmm, sounds like a delicious recipe. I love baking and then give away the results to try and brighten someone else's day.

  4. How funny another quilt blog I read posted cookies like these today, your I am sure are better since you are from Indiana, and I am too :) But if two people are blogging about them I have to try them out!

    Thank you for your version of the recipe!
