Pie Dough Lattice Cookies

This is another great Pinterest find! These were super  easy to make and actually taste great. If you are like me and you are not a huge fan of pie, but you like the pie crust....then you will love these!. These are just pie crust, with some melted butter, sugar and cinnamon. Sounds great, right? You just have to dig deep and find a little bit of patience for the lattice part. Nothing great comes easy, or so they say.
I took some step by step photos as I went along so you could see how to "fold"the strips of the dough in order to form the lattice work.
*The original recipe comes from

(If you need further step by step instructions, you can go to that site and it will show you more of the "how to pictures")

1 box Pillsbury All Ready Pie  Crust
2 Tbsp melted butter
Cinnamon and sugar mixed together

First start by rolling both of your pie doughs onto separate sheets of parchment paper into the best rectangular shape you can get each one into. On both of your dough rectangles, cut strips (1/4 - 1/2 inches wide). Next separate the strips from each other just a fraction. Lay every other strip back onto itself halfway. Next lay another strip from the other dough rectangle down the middle  of the dough. Place the strips that had been folded back ....over the new strip going the other direction. Keep repeating by folding back the opposite strips each time and adding a new strip of dough.
This picture shows how you fold every other strip back onto itself in order to lay a strip down the middle.

This next picture was after a few more strips had been added.

After all the dough is latticed, use a round cookie cutter to cut round cookies out. Remove the extra dough from around the cookies and re-roll it to make a few more cookies and do the same process as before. Now take your round cookies (that are still on the parchment paper and move the entire paper onto a cookie sheet. Use a pastry brush to brush melted butter onto each cookie. Sprinkle them with a mix of sugar and cinnamon. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes.

This is the final product....
