Pie Crust Cookies

Sometimes you want to have your pie and cookies too!


Since I think you deserve both, I have ‘developed’ a recipe.

Kelly’s Pie Crust Cookies!  Yup, cookies made from pie crust!


Isn’t pie crust, in all it’s flaky buttery goodness, just divine?  So why not make it into a cookie?

The inspiration for the pie crust cookies is my daughter Ava. She loves pie crust, but doesn’t like the filling.

Ava also only liked sprinkles, not ice cream, until she was seven.  Imagine the quizzacle looks I received at ice cream parlors explaining, “we will just have some sprinkles in a cup”.


When another Thanksgiving pie was nibbled all the way around by you know who, I had to take action! Kelly’s Pie Crust Cookies then took shape ~ literally.

Pie Crust Cookies are simple to make.  Prepare the dough or even buy prepared pie crust.  Need a perfect pie crust recipe?  Click here.


Roll the dough out to a thickness of about a quarter inch.  As the dough is rolled thin use cutters with simple shapes.

You can decorate the dough with colored sugar, sprinkles or dust with confectioner’s sugar after baking.  Ava likes them plain, which might be the best way to go as the flakiness & butter is really all you really need.


Bake at 325 degrees just until the edges get a little bit golden.  Ten minutes or less.

Hope you don’t think Pie Crust Cookies are a “half baked” idea…Come on give them a try!

  1. Stopping by from the Cookie Exchange! These look great ~ can’t wait to try out your recipe. Pinning for later :)

  2. She wouldn’t eat ice cream? Too funny. And I thought my son’s refusal to eat whipped cream was picky!

    Of course, I’m seriously thankful for your daughter’s picky eating habits since they led you to create this deliciously brilliant cookie recipe.

  3. Pie Crust cookies sound good and different. I’ve done something similar with puff pastry. (Roll it out, sprinkle with sugar, and cut into shapes before baking.) I can only imagine the looks you received at ice cream shops when you asked for sprinkles without ice cream!

  4. What a great idea! My grandmother would cut the leftovers from her pie crust, sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar and bake along side the pie for a few minutes. We love them. ~Jeanette

  5. These look wonderful – how cool to be able to use pie crust!

  6. Love it!! My girls and I love to bake pie crust with cinnamon and sugar and cut into strips. This will be a great recipe for us and something different. The best part of the pie is the crust!!

  7. These cookies look so yummy! It’s been great to be a part of this cookie exchange with you! Happy Holidays!

  8. This sounds delicious. I like the crust better than the pies too. When I use store brought crust I layer 2 crusts together to make them thicker. I never thought of making cookies with the crust.

  9. Honey, you had me at “pie”! lol I always bake my extra crust and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar — such a yummy treat! Great idea to actually cut them in to shapes and put sprinkles on them. Gotta give that a try! :)

  10. Oh what a fun idea! I love pie crust too although have yet to master a home made version-
    Thanks for sharing this great tutorial- I’d love to give these a try!

  11. Oh… I love pie crust too! How creative… can’t wait to try some :)
