Pie Crust Cookies

This is one of those “recipes” that brings me back to my younger days and the kitchen of Hubby’s dear grandma Ella. She made these simple little cookies and I always thought they were so good. I never realized that they were just something she made with leftover pie crust! I had forgotten about them until I actually had some pie crusts left from Thanksgiving that I needed to use up. One bite and I was transported 20 years back in time….


Pie Crust Cookies


1 package of 2 refrigerated pie crusts
1 egg white-beaten
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Roll out the pie crusts on a sheet of parchment paper and cut out your cookies with desired cookie cutter. Place them on a parchment lined baking sheet.

Brush a thin layer of egg white over each cookie.

Mix together the sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle over the cookies.

Bake for 10-11 minutes. (I found 10 minutes to be perfect in my oven)

Remove to a wire rack to cool and eat them up!

PS: you could also roll out leftover homemade pie crust pieces and do the same thing.

    This has been an all time favorite in our family too! I have now started to share this with my granddaughter. She got to choose the cookie cutter and help roll the pie crust and sprinkle on the cinnamon and sugar! She was so proud of what she had made.
    Happy Holidays to you and your family!
