Cinnamon Pie Crust Cookies - A Guest Post by MiMi

     When I volunteered to make a pie for an occasion as special as a birthday, I figured I needed to do it up right.  I had been wanting to make a slab pie for a while.  The birthday boy wanted pumpkin pie.  Pumpkin slab pie it would be.  Then I decided to top it off with honeyed pecans.  Luckily I remembered that my husband's family loves whipped cream on their pumpkin pie.  I came up with a maple whipped cream to make it special.

    When I decided to make the birthday boy his own individual mini pumpkin pie, I ended up with extra pie dough.  Why not make a little garnish of cinnamon pie cookies for the top?  I must admit that I used store-bough pie crust for this because it was a last minute thought.  They would be easy to make with homemade crust if I had more time. Steve was pretty happy with his little pie.

Cinnamon Pie Crust Cookies


1 T melted buter
Cinnamon Sugar

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F
  2. Roll the dough out to about 1/4" on a silicone mat. 
  3. Cut with small cookie cutters.   Before transferring them to a cookie sheet bake, I went ahead and spread melted butter on each cookie and sprinkled them with cinnamon sugar.   This keeps them from sticking to the pan.  
  4. Bake until golden brown, about 8 minutes. 
A note from MiMi: If you used store-bought pie dough, you may want to fold it in half and roll it out a little thicker than it came.  I tried the regular thickness for some and re-rolled it thicker for some of the others. I felt like the thicker ones came out nicer. 


  1. What a memory! My mom used to make these for Me so I'm asking myself, how come I've never made them for my own kids? Thank you for the reminder and for the lovely recipe! Hope you have a wonderful Wednesday

    1. They are so fun and easy, you should definitely make them. They are great on their own and even better alongside pie! I hope you have a great day!

    2. It makes me so happy to know that one of our recipes brought back fond memories for you! I love it when a recipe does that for me. MiMi

  2. These cookies are such a great idea!

    1. They are an easy way to dress your pie up, that is for sure! They would also be a great garnish for any other fall dessert!
