Lemon Pie Cookies are a marriage between a lemon cookie and a flaky pie crust – they are bright, flavorful and have an amazing texture!

  • 2 pie crusts from scratch or a refrigerated pack of 2
  • ¾ cup lemon curd
  • ½ cup (57g) powdered sugar
  • 1-2 tablespoons (5-10ml) half and half or cream, milk, or nondairy milk


  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.
  • Unroll pie crusts (or roll them out to 1/4-inch thick if using homemade).
  • Use a 3-inch round cookie cutter to cut circles, rerolling each crust as needed to use all the dough. You’ll get about 20 circles.
  • Lay out half the circles and add 1 tablespoon lemon curd to the center of each, spreading it just a bit to flatten.
  • Wet a finger with water and run it around the edges of the circle, then top with a second pie crust circle. Use a fork to pinch the edges together so they stick. Transfer each pie to the prepared cookie sheet.
  • Cut 2 cross slits in the center of each pie so that air can escape. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the crust looks done. Remove from oven and cool completely.
  • Glaze: Whisk powdered sugar and half and half until desired thickness. Drizzle over pies. Allow to semi-set (won’t get totally hard but will dry on top).
  • Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days or freeze unfrosted pies for up to 3 months.


  • If using a homemade crust, bake time might be slightly different.
  • You can make these smaller if you want more bite size cookies. I suggest a 1-inch or 2-inch round cookie cutter. Note: you’ll need less filling per cookie if you make them smaller, and they’ll bake faster.
  • Be sure to seal the edges completely so the lemon curd doesn’t ooze out.
    The glaze is optional but is delicious!
  • You can use heavy whipping cream, milk, or nondairy milk in the glaze.
