More and Better Pie Dough Cookies - QED

Link Up Lounge     

Today, I defrosted two more pie shells, the last of my stock.  I, again, experimented and turned out a wonderful cinnamon cookie.  I brought them to my class with chocolate cookies.  At first, they all took a chocolate cookie and then a cinnamon which is more simple.  After that, all they wanted was the cinnamon cookies.  They turned out to be delicious and so easy to make.

Now, that the pie shells are gone, I am turning to wontons and then puff pastry.  Stay around for some fun.
This is for later for coffee  to drink with the cookies.

Cinnamon Pie Shell Cookies - the Fifth Graders' Choice


Pie shell dough - either frozen store-bought or homemade

butter or margarine (Don't tell.  I used spray cooking oil.  It worked beautifully.  Paula Deen is not my name.) 
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup granulated sugar


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
If you are using scraps, roll them into a large rectangle.  If you are using a pie shell, just roll it so the sides are flat.
Mix cinnamon and sugar in small bowl and put aside.
Cut into shapes with a cookie cutter.  I also used a knife to make small rectangles.
Place cookies on parchment paper on cookie sheets.
Spray one side of each cookie and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar mixture
Bake for 7 to 10 minutes.  Mine were finished at 9 minutes but I started checking them earlier. 

Take a bite.  Get a cup of coffee or tea.  Grab a chair.  Relax and enjoy each bite.
These have nut crunch and a little cinnamon sugar on top.
These were the favorites.
