Looking for a last-minute sweet treat to make for an upcoming holiday gathering? These holiday pie crust cookies are just the ticket!
Happens to us all, right?!?!
Well, if you happen to be in need of a super fast cookie recipe, look no further because my holiday pie crust cookies totally fit the bill. Made with prepared pie crusts and a handful of other ingredients, these delightful little cookies come together in a snap … and they can be easily customized to fit any taste.
For my latest version, I used dried cranberries and pecan chips because they’re two of my favorite ingredients at the holidays … seriously, search for cranberry and pecan on my blog, and you’ll find tons of recipes … it’s almost like my mind cancels anything else out at the holidays!
If you’re not a cranberry or pecan fan, no worries … you can easily substitute any dried fruit or nuts to make a version that fits your holiday menu. Dried cherries and pistachios? Check. Dried apricot and almonds? Check. Heck, dried pineapple and macadamia nuts? Yep … check again.
Oh, there are also a ton of ways to top these yummy babies too. I went with a liberal sprinkling of powdered sugar, but you could also top them with a drizzle of dark, milk, or even white chocolate for another delicious version too!
However you make them, just do so … whether at the last minute or not!
- 1 (15-ounce) package refrigerated pie crusts
- ½ cup dried fruit, finely chopped
- ½ cup nuts, toasted and finely chopped
- ¼ cup granulated sugar
- 1 tablespoon dried orange peel (optional)
- Powdered sugar for topping
- Preheat the oven to 425°F. Lightly grease two large baking sheets.
- On a lightly floured surface, unroll one pie crust. Sprinkle the pie crust evenly with the dried fruit, nuts, sugar, and dried orange peel if using. Unroll the remaining pie crust, and place it on top.
- Roll the layered dough into a 14-inch circle, sealing the pie crusts together at the edges. Cut into desired shapes with a cookie cutter. Place the cut shapes on a prepared baking sheet. Re-roll any scraps, then continue to cut out shapes, placing them on another prepared baking sheet.
- Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Allow to cool for about five minutes, then sprinkle with powdered sugar.
