Easy as Pie Crust Cookies
|February 1, 2014||Posted by Tracy Knutsen under Christmas, Cookies, Pies and Cobblers, Thanksgiving, Valentine's Day|
To me, the best part of the pie is (usually) the crust. No stone throwing, please. I’ve embraced my *cough* uniqueness and I’m comfortable admitting this. I also don’t mind telling you that I’m the same way with pizza crust. I think I got it from my dad… I’ve been staring at a package of leftover refrigerated pie crust in my fridge and have succumbed to it’s calling. Yes, it really does say my name every time I open the refrigerator. Really. Time to bake. I thought about Pie Crust Cookies – the ones where you just roll balls of dough in cinnamon sugar and bake them – but wanted to add a little extra to this batch. I’m also pretty smitten with cookie cutters and wanted to haul out the hearts!
These Pie Crust Cookies are all dressed up for Valentine’s Day and I’ll be bringing them to my dad – my very first Valentine! My second favorite way to make these is with cranberries and fresh rosemary. We made these at Thanksgiving.
Chocolate chips work really well and pair wonderfully with dried cherries – or by just themselves! Apricots and almonds would be yummy, as would some crushed pistachios and orange zest. How about a savory version – crumbled bacon and shredded cheddar? Chopped pepperoni and grated Parmesan? Gasp! What about crushed up Butterfingers? Oh my gosh – I’m calling my dad right now! OK, right after I run to the store for more pie crust. Have any ideas for flavor combinations? I’m ready!
