Pie Scrap Cinnamon Cookies

Are you making pies today?  I am!  That's my contribution to our family Thanksgiving gathering this year.  And, getting to be in charge of the pies means that I also get to indulge in another favorite holiday tradition:  turning the leftover pie dough into cinnamon sugar pie scrap cookies.

I always end up with extra dough, mostly because my favorite pie crust recipe makes a generous batch of dough.  I like it that way.  I don't have to struggle to stretch the dough to the pan, over-working it in the process.  

I decided to get a little fancy this year with our pie scraps.  Usually, I just roll out the dough and cut rectangular strips.  This time I pulled out some fall leaf and acorn shaped cookie cutters.  

Brush the pie crust with a little water and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.  Bake at 400 for about 12-15 minutes.  The best part?  Getting to eat them today!   It'll tide me over until I can eat those glorious pies tomorrow.
