After making chicken pot pie last week, I had some leftover pie crust. The thing about tender, flaky pie crust is that you shouldn’t touch it. Don’t mess with it too much, or it gets tough. Tough pie crust is not tasty pie crust. And “not tasty” pie crust is just plain not worth it!
So, instead of messing with your crust and trying to make something out of it (like rolling it out again to make another pie crust, only to be disappointed when your crust doesn’t quite fit… and is now quite tough… wanna ask me how I know?) make Pie Crust Pleasers (I totally made up that name for this post… I don’t think these really have a name)!
Simply lay your scraps in a pan as you cut them, and generously sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
Bake in a 375° oven for about 15 minutes, or until golden brown.
Mmmmm. I remember fighting over these sharing these with my siblings growing up. And my sister? Don’t tell her I told you this, but I think she sometimes makes pie crust just to make these. Yep. She cuts the whole recipe into strips for Pie Crust Pleasers. They are that good.
