recipe, CJ's explanation and the Big Bunny's suggestions (see comments on the post) and cooked up Pie Crust Cookies. I also made a couple of little pies -- filled one with dried cranberries and chocolate chips, the other with peach jam.
Here's the verdict: That recipe makes one heckuva good pie crust. Seriously yum, and I don't even like pie crusts. But with the right filling ... mmmm. I'm going to try it again for a cherry pie.
However, unless you really, really, really love pie crust, I don't recommend the cookies. Even doused with cinnamon sugar, it's crust with no pie. What's the point?
And my grandmother didn't do things without a point.
That being the case, we have a creativity exercise: If the P-- C----- in my grandmother's recipe stands for Pie Crust, what -- other than Cookies -- could the C------ stand for? Give me a word!
