Even though the crust
of your pumpkin pie on Thanksgiving turned out flaky and buttery, consider everyone "pie"-ed out. Try these non-pie ways to use up leftover disk of dough.
For bite-sized treats, roll out the pie dough, spread with butter and sprinkle it with a mixture of cinnamon and sugar. Then, cut out disks or designs of dough using a cookie cutter or knife and bake at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes until golden-brown.
If taking the savory route, you can do the same thing as above but substitute the cinnamon-sugar with a grated nutty cheese like Parmigiano-Reggiano or Gruyère.
Or for a Latin-inspired twist, take your usual empanada filling
and put in in the leftover dough before crimping and baking. Got other leftover pie crust ideas? Leave them in the comments!
