How to Make Your Own Pie Cookies

Nothing quite says baking season like combining two of your favorite desserts: pie and cookies.

These quick and easy pie cookies come together in minutes using Pillsbury™ pie crust or cookie dough. Best of all, you can mix and match your favorite pie fillings for treats that are exactly what you’ve been craving.

Step 1: Choose Your Base

When it comes to making easy, stress-free pie cookies, you’ve got two options for your base—Pillsbury™ pie crust or Pillsbury™ sugar cookie dough. Whether you’re sticking with traditional pie crust or upgrading your cookie game with your favorite pie filling, there’s no wrong choice.

Pillsbury™ Pie Crust

 Lemonade Pie Cookies

Save yourself the time and effort of making your own dough and skip a few steps with Pillsbury™ pie crust. Take our delicious Lemonade Pie Cookies as an example: All you need is a handful of ingredients and 15 minutes of prep to make these cookies happen.

Method One: Roll out your first pie crust, spread on pie filling as instructed, cover with second pie crust and cut out cookies with a 3-inch cookie cutter.

Method Two: Instead of sealing your pie filling in between two 3-inch pie crust rounds, you can also follow this Cherry Pie Cookies method. Use a 1-inch cookie cutter in the top pie crust to create a window to see the filling inside your cookies (Pro tip: For more festive cookie pies, switch up the small cookie cutter with your favorite shape).

Pillsbury™ Sugar Cookie Dough

Sweet Potato Pie Cookies

There’s no rule against combining your two favorite desserts. These pie-filled cookies are the perfect upgrade to traditional dessert.

Method One: Using a similar approach to the Lemonade Pie Cookies, roll out your cookie dough to 1/8-inch thick and cut out 24 dough rounds with a 1/2-inch round cutter. Place your pie filling on top of one round, cover with second round and seal edges with a fork.

Method Two: Using a regular-size muffin tin, press 1 tablespoon of cookie dough evenly in bottom of each muffin cup. Top each pie cup with about 2 teaspoons pie filling and spread to fill center of each cookie.
