Leftover pie crust makes me happy! So many possibilities… Should I create something savory or sweet?
Today sweet won!
I was thinking all yesterday and last night about what I could make with my leftover pie crust from the chicken pot pie the other day. I couldn’t think of anything that spoke to me…
And then all of a sudden this morning an idea came to me!
I decided to make little ‘sandwiches’ (like cookie sandwiches) out of the pie crust dough. I would fill them with frosting. Yeah!
When I made them, I hadn’t yet figured out my whole plan – that’s why there are sprinkles on them. I don’t know why they don’t look round in the picture… I used the top of my nutmeg bottle so they would all be the same size and shape. I wanted them to be small, like about an inch wide.
I baked them for just 10 minutes @ 400°, which was about perfect.
Then I made a chocolate buttercream frosting to go in the middle. They looked like little hamburgers! I wish I’d taken a picture 😦
So they looked really cute and everything but they just didn’t seem finished yet… Then I thought it would be amazing if I dipped them in chocolate! I didn’t have any chocolate but I did have white ‘chocolate’ chips. In they went!
They’re like little bonbons! They taste amazing too! Look at the inside…
They’re sweet but not over the top sweet – and light and flaky! Can you say YUM?!?
