Crustie Cookies

This is a favorite from childhood. Via my Mom, maybe she learned from her Mom or her aunt who lived with the family. When I was kid, she'd let us make the crustie cookies and I would labor over making cool shapes and designs. As an adult, I'm more likely to just put them out as they are.

  1. If pieces are really small, mash together and re-roll.
  2. Cut pieces into whatever sizes and shapes you want. Good idea to keep under 2" wide.
  3. Put on cookie sheet. Prick with a fork. Brush a little water on (with fingers or a pastry brush). Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
  4. Bake with pie (or 350) for about 10-15 minutes, depending on size and amount. Watch carefully as they are small and thin so can burn easily.
