Pie Crust Scraps (Using Up Leftovers)

Have any leftover pie crust scraps?

Well, don’t throw them away.

Roll them out, like 1 mm thin. Cut out as many 2-3 inch diameter circles as you can (even number of circles, please).

Lay the circles on a baking sheet covered with a silpat.

Add a half a spoonful of your favorite jam, and a half a spoonful of cream cheese mixture (if you want).

Cream cheese mixture:

2 tbsp cream cheese, room temperature
1 tsp butter, softened
2 tbsp sugar

Mix well. Yum.

You can add strawberry jam and cream cheese for a strawberries and cream mixture, or whatever you happen to like.

Also good: blackberry jam and cream cheese, guava jam and cream cheese, pineapple jam and cream cheese, raspberry jam and cream cheese.

If you have leftover buttered apples, pop them into this pie, it’ll taste great.

If you have leftover sweet potato pie mix, or pumpkin pie mix, toss those right in, also great.

For chocophiles, nutella is always a winner.

Line up on silpat, bake 350 F for about 18-20 minutes.

Alternatively,

Just cut the pie crust scraps into little strips. Bake 350 F for like 10 minutes (time depends on the size of your strips, so keep an eye on them!).

Cover with honey and enjoy!

Or: cover with cinnamon sugar and enjoy!

Or: cover with chile lime spice (they sell it in mexican stores) and enjoy with a sour cream and honey dip. Enjoy!

    • I think my pie scrap recipes are becoming more popular in my family than the pies themselves!
      So easy to make, infinite variations so you never get bored, and just.. YUM!!
      Nothing like a limited supply offer to make everyone polish off everything 😉
