Pretzel Cookies

My parents and I are invited to dinner tonight, and my mom is in charge of dessert, meaning, I am in charge of dessert. I was so excited – I actually have an excuse to bake besides my constant cravings for something sweet and my desires to experiment in the kitchen.

I played it safe tonight and made a blueberry pie. Click here for my recipe. But this post isn’t about the pie. Rather, it’s about the scraps of dough that you have after you make the pie.

I hate wasting good dough, so I decided to make pretzel-shaped cookies. It’s fairly simple. Just take small pieces of your leftover pie dough, roll them into thin logs, and form into pretzels. Brush the cookies with a little egg wash (so they turn golden brown in the oven), dust the cookies with lots of cinnamon sugar (remember, the dough is not very sweet to begin with), and sprinkle with sesame seeds (optional).

Bake the cookies in a 350 degree oven for 8-12 minutes.

Enjoy with your pie! Don’t get me wrong, these definitely stand on their own.

And if you were any bit curious, here is my blueberry pie.
