Holly & Heather’s Helpful Hint: Bring on the Holidays!

by helpinghandstwins

It’s December and time for joyous holiday festivities! We love this time of year and it almost always includes cooking and baking up some tasty treats. With crazy work days, we are trying to find some baking short cuts to help ease the weekend time crunch. Here’s a recipe we tried that came out great and was quick and easy. It also lends itself to so many variations. We’ll list a few here..let us know if you try it too!


Pie Cookies
Ingredients: prepared refrigerated pie crust, sugar, cinnamon, butterscotch, chocolate chips or jam

Roll out the pie crust dough, use any festive cookie cutter you like, and place on a baking sheet. Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar or put chips on top. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 10-12 minutes. When still warm and out of the oven you could also spread your favorite holiday jam, jelly or pie filling on top. They definitely need the sweetness or “pie” topping to go with the more savory crust. Or you could frost the cookies and decorate any way you like to put your own holiday touch on them!
