Best Pie Crust Cookies

A few months ago, my husband came home with a huge bag of apples. Normally I’d have to fight off the kids to keep them away from the fruit but this time, I knew exactly how I wanted to use them! I’ve seen pie crust cookies before and thought it was amazing that you get two delicious desserts in one. It seemed like a fun way to get the kids involved in baking too.

 

Best Pie Crust Cookies

 

Ingredients
1 unbaked pie crust, about 4 ounces
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup confectioners' sugar
2 teaspoons whole milk



Directions

1. Gather the ingredients. Preheat the oven to 350 F.
2. You can use a fresh pie crust or you can combine pie crust scraps to create a ball of dough. Roll out the piecrust ball on a lightly floured surface. Roll it into a loose rectangle. You can roll the dough fairly thin; just watch out for holes.
3. Melt the butter and spread it evenly over the dough with a pastry brush or a spoon. You don’t have to completely melt the butter, softened works well too and won’t change the composition of the dough.
4. Whisk together the sugar, brown sugar, and cinnamon in a small bowl. You can also shake it up in a jar.
5. Spread the sugar mixture evenly over the butter.
6. Start at the bottom of the rectangle and roll the dough into a log. Don’t roll it too tight or too loose. Both of these will affect how the cookies bake and spread. Tuck in the ends of the dough to close.
7. Cut the dough into 1-inch pieces with a sharp knife.
8. Place the pieces cut-side up onto a parchment-lined baking sheet. Place them about an inch apart.
9. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown and firm.
Cool completely. Remove any caramelized sugar from the edges.
10. While the cookies are baking and cooling you can make the icing. Whisk together the confectioners' sugar and milk until a thick frosting forms. Add more milk or powdered sugar to reach the desired consistency. This can take some trial and error as humidity and ingredients are factors.
11. Drizzle the icing over the cookies with a fork or spoon.
12. Allow the icing to harden and serve immediately.
