Pie Crust Croutons


These are fun little guys to make. This is the finished product, but here are some steps on how to make them.

IMG_2519I got these mini fall cutters I think at Williams and Sonoma, love them. Any way you get your pie crust dough roll it out and cut shapes with your cutters. Preheat oven to 425, brush dough shapes with a egg wash and sprinkle with favorite toppings. I made Sweet (sprinkled with cinnamom and sugar) and Savory ( sprinkled with salt and pepper). Place on parchment paper and bake for approx. 7-8 minutes.

IMG_2525Note to self. This is a single layer of pie dough and I found on my second batch that if you fold over the dough and roll to make it thicker the croutons are even more AWESOMER! This is easy peasy and really fun to do.

IMG_2529This is out of the oven. Ready for soups, salads, ice creams, puddings or just snacking by them selfs. The use’s for these little guys is just endless when you start thinking about what they are good on. Oh Im thinking the sweet ones on some Pumpkin Spice Ice Cream or the opposite way on some Butternut Squash Soup. Recipe to follow soon for that one.

I saw Martha Stewart decorate a Pumpkin Pie with these little treats now thats a “Good Thing” Enjoy
