It’s Pie Season! Whoo Hoo! Hi there! This is Kathleen from Fearlessly Creative Mammas here to entertain you again. If you can’t tell, I love pie. There are so many choices with pie and during Thanksgiving and Christmas, I make so much of it. Don’t tell, but I also eat so much of it. That’s a secret. With pie baking come leftover pie crust. What do you do with all of it? I hate throwing it out, so I came up with these Pie Crust Cookies. They are so simple, but so good. Originally shared November 2015
This is my beautiful daughter. She is a kick in the pants and absolutely one of my very favorite people. She is so entertaining, funny and smart at a whip. I know, I’m bias. However, other people say the same thing. This girl LOVES Pie Crust Cookies. They are her favorite. She actually ate every one of the cookies on that plate. So, I make her these cookies anytime I have some spare pie crust.
The last time I had pie crust, it was to make this Southern Pecan Pie, which is amazing, if I do say so myself. I like to use a silicone mat on my cookie sheets. It helps your food not stick and you don’t have to use extra oil. So nice. Plus, your food doesn’t stick to the pan. So wonderful for clean up.
