Holiday Cinnamon Cookies

When you have leftover pie crust do you usually roll it out 
and sprinkle cinnamon and sugar on it then bake it?
This was always a tasty treat that my mom would make when I was younger.
I decided to make come pie crust cookies that are similar and boy were they good!
I thought I would share them with you since they are easy and yummy.


You will need:
1 pie crust
butter, softened
cinnamon
granulated sugar

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Roll out pie crust and spread the desired amount of softened butter with a spatula onto the crust.
Sprinkle with desired amount of cinnamon and sugar.


Roll up pie crust and slice into 1-inch slices.


Place onto prepared cookie sheet and bake for 11 - 15 minutes or until golden brown.

While the cookies cool slightly you can make a sweet icing to finish them off.

Ingredients needed for icing:
1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1 - 1 1/2 teaspoons milk

Mix ingredients together until smooth and well blended and drizzle onto cookies.



Grab a cup of coffee, tea, or hot cocoa and enjoy these cookies in front of a cozy fire.
Love and hugs to you, friends!

Good Morning Stephanie :)

I have never had the leftover crust rolled into mini buns. My mom would use cookie cutters and then sprinkle a cinnamon-sugar mixture and bake. Thank you for bringing back that memory :)

Have a blessed day sweet friend!

I think we all took one look and said 'oooh yummy!'
I've just made all my trimmings into mini mince pies, but cant wait to try your idea.

Yummy! Those cookies sound delish!

Hope said...

Yes, we always had what we called Poor Man's Cookies made with leftover pie crust. I never thought of using pie crust for the sole purpose of making cookies. These look so temptingly delicious!
Great photos, too.

Oh, my these look absolutely delicious. My gramma and my mom would use any pie crust pieces that were left and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar and bake. Thank you for sharing! Hugs ♥ Teri

Oh Stephanie, do you know what you've done? You just made me add one more thing on my list of things to do! Like you (of course I am much older than you so moms have been doing this for years) my mom also did this when I was a little girl...and in turn, I have done it for my kids and grandkids! The recipe couldn't be any easier and adding the extra icing is just perfect. I am so going to make these! Thank you for sharing and have a blessed Christmas!

Sylvia said...

WOW, thanks Stephanie, how easy is this, Monday is Cookie baking day with all 6 of my grands, this will be on our "To Make" list.

Vicky Hunt said...

Blessings, Vicky

We made these this week! Hubby calls them pinwheels and it's his favorite treat. He loves sweets and I can't eat sugar so this is perfect for him. If I tell him you put icing on yours....he'll want it on his next time! lol Sweet hugs!

Debbie Harris said...

Ooooo those look yummy! Better than just rolled out pie crust I would say. It takes my dear daughter to teach me something wonderful :-) I will try this for sure next time I make pastry. Your father will love them with the icing on top.
Love you!

Anne Payne said...

Oh my goodness, these look so good! I'm so drooly now. I've never done that with leftover pie crust as the chickens always get it, but this worth trying for sure. Thank you for sharing.

Mrs R said...

Oh gosh, those looks so delicious! I haven't done any baking yet but I need to. Maybe I just will come visit you and borrow a dozen or two! :-)

Beatrice Euphemie said...

Oh, these look so delicious! I will definitely be trying these! Thankyou, Dear - you have so many creative and wonderful recipes and crafts. Hugs xo Karen

Jazzmin said...

Oh, do these look scrumptious! What a sweet treat! They sound simple, yet delicious. What a perfect recipe to whip up to share with family and friends. It seems that often when I read your recipe posts it is late at night and my mouth is watering but the kitchen's "closed", hehe. It may be 1 am, but I wish I could go whip some up right now.

These will definitely be on my 'to bake' list. I am enjoying trying different recipes this winter.

Hope you have a blessed Thursday, my friend!

Huge hugs,
Jazzmin
