My pie crust tip for today : LUSENET : Country Families : One Thread

You all probably know this one, but just in case...

I made a blackberry cobbler for our Church life group meeting tonight, and made a homemade crust (I dislike those store-bought crusts, but just braved homemade recently). I took the leftover crust scraps, rerolled them and cut them with a small cookie cutter (from an old Tupperware toy set I had when I was 7!), then sprinkled them with cinnamon and sugar, and baked them on the cookie sheet I was using to catch the berry juice drips from the cobbler. Just about 5 to 7 minutes in that hot oven was all it took, and the boys just polished the last one off. I don't think they lasted 5 minutes!

Have you done this, and do you sprinkle yours with anything else I might want to try?

My kids love those! I learned it from my Mother-in-law. No, I don't know about anything else to sprinke them with, but they like the cinnimon such much I didn't think about it. Those little candy sprinkles might be fun.

Dear Christine...I 'gild the lilly' by spreading the crust with butter before sprinkling on sugar and cinnamon. Yumm. Stef

I always like them sprinkled with salt. Just like a cracker. My gramma would also make little tarts with left over pie crust dough. She's roll it out and put a spoonful of jam or jelly in the center then, fold it back up again and bake it. My mouth is watering.

Yep, my mom always made them too. I think I always loved the scraps with cinnamon sugar better than the pie! Colleen
