Sometimes, I really don’t feel like making cookies. Really really really don’t.
Unfortunately, Eva’s greatest joy in life is making something delicious come out of the oven. I don’t know where she gets it. That’s not true actually, she gets it from my mother. The two of them need to go find a kitchen and leave me out of it, because my idea of baking is popping frozen pot pies into the oven.
That being said…
Eva likes to bake, so we bake. We just don’t always bake the fanciest things. As long as they taste good, they work for us.
Cookies Made From Pie Crust
/// Refrigerated pie crust
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and unroll one of the refrigerated pie crusts. (If you only want to make a small plate of cookies or you’re just looking to satisfy your four year old baker, put the other crust back in the fridge.)
Use cookie cutters to cut shapes out of the pie crust.
Roll up the excess and flatten it out to get more space for shapes.
When you just have bits and pieces left, roll them into balls and flatten them out to make misshapen circle lump cookies.
Melt a few tablespoons of butter. Use a pastry brush to butter all of the cookies.
Mix cinnamon and sugar.
Sprinkle cinnamon mixture over the cookies.
Bake for 9 minutes. They may very well take longer, but you don’t want them to burn so start checking them around 9 minutes. They shouldn’t take more than 15 unless there’s something wrong with your oven.
