Pie Dough Cookies

Hello! Hope you had a fantastic weekend! Its so fun to wake up and check your mail on a monday morning to see it overflowing with new blog post notifications. So now that you have caught up with all the others, here is your mid-morning treat. I bought a couple of readymade pie dough sheets last week.  Since we are only two people in the house - two people who eat everything as soon as its ready, making a whole pie didn't seem like a good idea. Then I saw this mini pie recipe over at Smitten Kitchen and I decided to modify it to suit my needs.

The cookies were so flaky and crumbly. And the steps are so simple if you use readymade dough. Here is the how-to.

First roll out the pie dough and cut shapes in it. I made circles (so creative)

Next line them up in a greased pan and top up with fillings of your choice. I used lemon curd from Trader Joe's, chocolate chips and some Mango Puree.

Now cover these with another pieces of round pie dough and create some designs with a fork. Bake in a preheated oven at 350F for 18 mts. Tadaa...

So simple and SO yummy. Now your left with some scraps that didn't fit into the circles, right? Don't throw it away. Sprinkle some brown sugar and cinnamon and bake in the oven for about 7 mts. And you got some extra non-conformational cookies.

Double yum. Simple as always with a fantastic result. Let me know how this recipe works out for you. Have a great week!
