Texas Pie Crust Cookies

Happy Texas Independence Day, y’all! Show off your pride for the Lone Star State and celebrate with a batch of delicious Texas Pie Crust Cookies.

When making pies I’m often left with tiny scraps of pie crust after rolling and trimming to fit my pie dish. Never being one to waste tasty food, I like to roll the scraps flat and bake them into delicious pie crust cookies. Flavored sugars and Texas themed cookie cutters transformed these Pie Crust Cookies into a dessert fit for celebrating my home state’s Independence Day. Today marks the adoption of the Texas Declaration of Independence in which Texas officially broke free from Mexico. No matter how many miles away, today and every day I’m proud to call myself a Texan.
