Pie Cookies

Pie Cookies by crazyforcrust.com

I can’t believe it. This is my 100th post.

And, as an added (unplanned but lucky) bonus, I hit 100 followers yesterday on Google Friend Connect.

Amazing, really. I’m speechless.

If you’d asked me a year ago, when this blog was still in my head and not out in the world, would I think I’d make 100 posts, I would have laughed. I probably would have said “Yeah right, what would I have to say for 100 posts?”

I guess I proved myself wrong.

I want to thank you, my readers, for reading my posts. My words. This blog has given me a new passion for something I’ve loved to do all my life. Now, when I watch Cupcake Wars, I take notes instead of just spectate. Making it to 100 posts is a milestone for me – because this means I know I can make it to 200 and beyond. I’m not doubting myself anymore.

How about some pie? I mean cookies? No, wait, pie???

There’s blueberry or cherry lattice pie.

Or how about pumpkin pie or banana cream?

A friend of mine introduced me to this method of decorating. She had made “pie” cupcakes at MOPS meeting and showed them to me after. I thought they were the cutest things ever and filed the method away to do at a later time. When I started thinking about this post, I figured, why not use cookies?

I used my favorite sugar cookie and icing recipes (see below). The filling is made from M&Ms.

The pie crust was piped using a #102 tip and the whipped cream was a #18 tip. These were so much fun to make. Even my daughter got in on the fun (and ended up covering her whole pie with “whipped cream” and then the rest of the M&Ms so it was a “do you want some cookie with that icing” pie).

“Pie” Cookies (and more!)

“Pie” Cookies (and more!)

Ingredients

  • Sugar cookies, cut into rounds (use your favorite cookie dough, or a refrigerated kind)
  • Vanilla frosting (your favorite recipe or a can)
  • M&Ms
  • Food Coloring

Instructions

  1. Separate frosting into two bowls. Tint one bowl with brown food coloring and the other with white (for pure white "whipped cream"). Add to decorating bags. Spread a little frosting on each cookie and top with colored M&Ms for desired "filling." Pipe pie crust edge and lattice with brown frosting or whipped cream with white. Chill to harden.
