Where are my math geeks with a sweet tooth? Let’s celebrate Pi Day with pie crust Pi shaped cookies!
Who’s prepping for the next holiday… I don’t mean Easter or St. Patrick’s Day. The geeky cool holiday of Pi Day comes first, on 3/14, which represents the approximation of pi as 3.14,
I am not a fan of traditional pies, a very common way to celebrate Pi Day. I am a fan of cookies, though. So today I made pie crust cookies for pi day!
Pi Day Cookies Using Pie Crust
These are fun cookies to make with leftover pie crust or make a whole batch of them to celebrate March 14th.
- pi cookie cutter
- rolling pin
- pastry brush
- pie crust dough
- butter, melted
Start with your favorite pie crust recipe or make it super easy by using a pre-made pie crust. Can anyone guess which one I chose? 😉
I managed to get 21 cookies out of my 1 pre-made pie crust. I just kept rolling the left over the dough.
I brushed each cookie lightly with melted butter (an egg wash would work too) and then sprinkled with my sugar & cinnamon mixture. Bake at 375° for 10-12 minutes, depending on how thick you make your cookies.
The result? Crispy, yummy sweetness and a fun way to celebrate Pi day!
