This is also what we have done with our pie crust scraps since I can remember, minus the butter, though. Just sprinkle on the cinnamon and sugar and bake, delicious. We would fight over it as kids.
I had a craving for these this afternoon. I remember them when I'd come home from school, my mom would have them baking in the oven (such fond memories.) She died when I was 16 and the recipe (I thought was lost) so on a hunch I put it in the search engine and found this recipe. I just finished making them and they are exactly how I remember them. Thank you for the stroll down memory lane, now my kids will enjoy when they get home from school.
I have made these a few times and they are excellent! DH is not a big fan of pie crust so I usually eat the whole batch. They are quick and easy and a good alternate if we want a dessert that is not chocolately.
THis is what I do with all of my scraps! I LOVE it! YUM!
As a kid I wasn't too hip to fruit pies. My mom would always do this with the dough scraps and they were all mine. Yum!
I remember as a child growing up my grandma making these for me. Recently I was at my sister's house and I made these again for us out of the left over pie crusts. It certainly brought back fond memories of my grandmother. Thanks so much for posting.
The best part of this recipe is it's simplicity with an added bonus that it tastes great. I just purchased the cinnamon sugar already mixed. I found that after the first batch I did not put enough cinnamon sugar. The second try I really loaded up the pie crust up with cinnamon sugar and got the flavor I was looking for.
We call these pie crust cookies, and we LOVE them so much! My mom used to make these for me as a child, and now I make them for my kids. Thanks for putting this on here!
This is one of my favorites as well. I look forward to it more than the pie itself I often make this just for the crisps and no pie THEY ARE AWSOME!
I hate to drag down your rating and to be the one person who disagrees with everyone else, but we didn't really like this recipe. I pulled out this recipe to use up a broken frozen pie crust, and it just didn't seem to work. The pieces were pretty flavorless once cooked, and I think 20 minutes might be a little too long.
