“Baking cookies is comforting, and cookies are the sweetest little bit of comfort food. They are very bite-sized and personal.” – Sandra Lee
Lemonade Pie Cookies. These are the cookies that came from a Pinterest recipe I used for our office cookie crawl today. This is the first Pinterest recipe that I’ve tried that actually worked out. In fact, it worked out so well that I was asked for the recipe after the event was over. For whatever reason, I was so happy about this. Somehow I felt like I’d given just a little bit of myself (which, to me, is the definition of baking) and it was received well. And that felt nice.
Below is the super easy recipe, which I doubled.
Splash of water
1 box refrigerated pie crusts
1 10-ounce jar lemon curd
1/2 cup sugar (I did not double this or use this much)
Step 1: Heat oven to 350 degrees, line baking sheet with parchment paper
Step 2: To make egg wash, in small bowl, beat egg with splash of water until well-blended. Set aside.
Step 3: Unroll pie crusts. Spread lemon curd on one of the crusts, leaving 1/2-inch border around edge. Place second crust on top.
Step 4: With 3-inch cookie cutter, cut out cookies by gently pressing down through both crust layers.
Step 5: With handle of knife press edges to seal; cut “x” in center of each cookie pie. Brush each cookie with egg wash; sprinkle with sugar. Place on cookie sheet.
Step 6: Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool completely, about 30 minutes, before serving.
Now I’m excited to do more holiday baking!
