Pie Crust Cookies

These cookies are the answer to using up leftover pie crust scraps, but be prepared: They've become such a hit with my daughters that I often whip up homemade pie crust dough just to bake a batch. I also make a slightly fancier version of this cookie by shaping them into bow ties. Here's how.

Use Up Your Scraps

Cut the rolled-out dough into 1-1/2-by-3-inch rectangles.

Pinch the Dough

Use your fingers to pinch the center of each rectangle, forming a bow tie shape.

Dress Them Up    

Sprinkle the bow ties with your cinnamon-sugar mixture.

Bow Tie Cookies

Bake on a parchment-lined baking sheet until the cookies are golden around the edges, 15 minutes.
