What are pie crust cookies?
Pie crust cookies are made by assembling two round pieces of pie dough, placing them together with filling between, and crimping the edges to seal. This type of pastry can be sweetened or savory.
What do pie crust cookies taste like?
The most common type is a sweet dessert. Pie crust cookies may be flavored with fruit preserves, such as raspberry or strawberry; nut butter, such as peanut butter; chocolate chips; and/or spices, such as cinnamon and ginger. There are even savory pie crust cookies that contain cheese and herbs. The contrasting tastes and textures of the pie dough and filling makes for a fun eating experience!
For my mickey mouse pie crust cookies, I used black berry preserves because that is what I had on hand.
I used store bought pie crust but you can certainly make your own. It does take a little bit of time but not too bad.
