Pie Crust Crafting

What do you do with scraps of pie crust after making a pie, quiche, etc? Usually I sprinkle them with cinnamon sugar and bake them for a delicious treat. But with the scraps left over from the Helvetica challenge, I tried something different.

I cut the scraps into narrow strips of various sizes, small squares, and little triangles. Then I baked them. It only took about 3 minutes in a 450°F oven before they were ready.

I let them cool for a few minutes, then invited Steve and Trevor to join me in creating art using the pie crust pieces. Trevor made a bunny, a robot, a sun, and our initials.

Steve made a bridge and the space shuttle.

I made a clown and a tic-tac-toe game.

After creating your masterpiece, you can dip the pie crust pieces into a sauce and enjoy a tasty snack. Ideas include marinara sauce, peanut butter, pesto, honey mustard, ranch dressing, or applesauce, just to name a few. Enjoy!
