Solution to Leftover Pie Dough: Make Cookies

I love making pies. When I prepare these tasty treats, I invest most of my time in the dough – mixing all the ingredients together, cooling the dough in the fridge for a few hours, and then rolling it out for my pie crust. Even though I already have my recipe for pie dough, I often find that I have some leftover dough when I make a pie. And I think to myself, why in the world waste this dough which I spent so much time on?

So I take my leftover dough, sprinkle lots of cinnamon sugar on it, roll little pieces of the dough into balls, and press a well in the center of the balls with my finger to form roughly 1 inch cookies in diameter. I then fill the wells with either raspberry or apricot jam (any jam will do) and bake the cookies in a 350 degree fahrenheit oven for roughly 10 minutes (or until the dough has hardened). These cookies are perfect with a hot cup of tea or coffee or as an accompaniment to your pie.

    A delicious way to recycle scraps and turn then into something as good as pie! Clever.
