Some of my favorite holiday traditions started in the kitchen, and baking cookies with my family is at the top of the list. I mentioned some of my favorite Christmas cookies in this post a couple of weeks ago, but there's another cookie that always brings back memories of holidays at home: pie crust cookies.
When my siblings and I were little, my mom let us use leftover pie crust to make simple cookies. We rolled out the crust and sprinkled it with cinnamon sugar, sliced the dough into strips, rolled them up, and baked them. It was such a fun and easy way for us to get involved in the kitchen while mom was baking pies. And the cookies were always delicious.
The grown-up version uses chai spice instead of cinnamon sugar, giving it a more robust flavor than the cookies I made as a kid, but it's just as simple and fun to make.
