In an effort to figure out what to do with an extra pie crust I had on-hand after testing this recipe, I stumbled across these easy and delightful cookies:
While you could make your own dough, it kind of defeats the whole purpose of this recipe, which traditionally uses any scraps that are left over when making pie (similarly, check out how to use leftover puff pastry scraps, apple peels and potato peels!).
And as for the “recipe”, there really is none. Simply spread softened butter on your crust, sprinkle with brown sugar, roll up, slice and bake.
Crisp, flaky, and lightly sweet, these are perfect with a cup of coffee or tea during the day, or with a bowl of ice cream for dessert.
Oh – and if you’re wondering what “pets de soeurs” translates to, well – you’ll have to look it up for yourself. I’m a lady.
from various sources
one pie crust (homemade or refrigerated)
3 tablespoons butter, softened
1/2 cup brown sugar
Pre-heat oven to 375 – line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
Place the crust on a worksurface and spread with the softened butter. Cover evenly with the brown sugar. Roll the crust up into a tight spiral and cut into 1″ slices. Place on your prepared baking sheets and bake for 12 – 15 minutes, or till golden brown. Transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.
