I’m shaking things up for my last day of Pie Week. Rather than share another pie, I’ve got a fun idea for what to do with those leftover pie dough scraps. Plus, there’s a list of 25 dynamite pies from around the web worthy of your Thanksgiving table.
I’m not sure who first shared the idea for pie crust “cookies” with me. Maybe it was my Mom, maybe it was someone else. Whoever it was, thank you. These little treats are brilliant. You take the leftover scraps of pie dough after you’re finished building your pie, cut into shapes, brush with egg wash, sprinkle with sugar, and bake until golden.
Consider these little cookies a snack while you wait for your pie to cool. A warm-up for the real thing.
They’re crisp, buttery, and completely addictive. So don’t be surprised if they disappear immediately.
Use your leftover pie dough scraps to make these tasty and super easy cookies.
- Pie crust scraps
- 1 large egg
- 1 tablespoon water
- Sugar or cinnamon-sugar, for sprinkling
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees and line a sheet pan with parchment paper.
- Gather the leftover pie scraps into a ball. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough to about 1/4 inch thick. Cut out into desired shapes and place on prepared sheet pan.
- Whisk together the egg and water. Brush on top of the cut out dough and sprinkle with sugar or cinnamon-sugar.
- Bake until golden brown, about 10-12 minutes. Store in an airtight container for up to several days.
