- Pie crust (refrigerated or you can make your own)
That's it! Oh and this only takes 10 minutes to bake! Okay, I am getting ahead of myself.
Roll out the pre-made pie crust.
Use some festive cookie cutters to cut shapes out of the dough. We used a star and number 4 cookie cutter.
We rolled together the left over dough and pressed it down and used our cookie cutters to make more cookies. Because this dough was thicker, we got thicker cookies with many layers. My kids preferred the thinner, crispier cookies, but I liked the thicker ones. Trying making both kinds and see what you prefer.
Place on an ungreased cookie sheet and sprinkle cinnamon sugar over the top.
We like lots of cinnamon sugar. This would also be fun with some red and blue sugar to keep with the 4th of July theme.
I had the kids pour some cinnamon sugar with a spoon and spread it around with their fingers. Hubby says the oven kills all sorts of germs!
Ready to go in the oven.
Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes or until the cookies turn golden. Let them cool completely and celebrate the 4th with some flaky goodness!
They aren't as pretty as my inspiration, but the kids don't know that!
