Are you lucky enough to have childhood memories of helping bake pies in the family kitchen? Maybe you even got to play with leftover scraps of dough to bake your own little treat. A lot of love and care goes into baking, creating precious moments you treasure for life. Why not carry on this tradition, or start a new one, with your own baking fun?
Gluten-Free Pie Crust Cookies
If you prefer to eat gluten-free or are baking with someone who eats gluten-free out of necessity, starting with gluten-free pie crust like Silly Zak’s makes the job easy, especially since you can pick one up at your local retailer or order online. Pie crust dough, cinnamon, sugar, and cooking spray are all you need to make these little bites of heaven!
Whether you want to use up leftover pie crust dough, or you want to use the entire crust just for cookies, you’re going to love this simple recipe!
Pull out the cookie cutters and rolling pin, and get ready for a good hour of fun that ends with the flakiest and delicious cookies ever. Rolling, cutting, and decorating is a great way to spend quality time in the kitchen with those you love. Kids especially will love using their creativity to cut shapes from the dough and decorating them with sugar and cinnamon or colored sugar. You can use shapes that represent the season (snowflakes, spring flowers, stars, etc.,) or simply use shapes that fit your mood.
Roll the dough thin for crispy cookies, or leave the dough a little thicker for luscious layered cookies. If you want to get really fancy, you can dip your finished cookies into a sweet dip such as cheesecake dip, or dunk them in melted chocolate. There really is no wrong way to dress up these light and tasty cookies.
How to Make Gluten-Free Pie Crust Cookies
You will need:
Preheat the oven to 350°
For cinnamon and sugar cookies, whisk the cinnamon and granulated sugar together in a small bowl and set aside.
Roll out the pie crust dough on parchment paper or a lightly floured surface.
Spray one side of the dough with cooking spray, or brush it lightly with melted butter.
Sprinkle the dough with a little of the cinnamon and sugar mixture if using, or sprinkle with granulated sugar or colored sugar.
Flip the pie crust dough over and spray it, or brush with butter. Repeat the sprinkling process.
Use cookie cutters to make desired shapes. Roll out any scraps and repeat.
Place the cookies onto a baking sheet lined with a silicone mat or sprayed with cooking spray, and bake for 10-12 minutes, flipping them over halfway through.
