Strawberry Mini Pie Dairy Free Cookie

Conversation was irrelevant. Only (dairy free cookie) pie mattered. - Richelle Mead
These dairy free Cookie Strawberry Mini Pies were actually intended to be homemade Pop-Tarts, but I changed my mind midway through the process. These cookies can be any flavor you'd like - I just had strawberry preserves on hand! I was thinking these cookies would make for an awesome peanut butter and jelly cookie, too. Uncrustables vibes. (If you know, you know.) I used store-bought pie crust and I would suggest you do the same as long as you read the ingredient label. And make sure you purchase PIE dough, not PIZZA dough. Big big big diff. Finally, I used the lid of a mason jar to shape my dairy free mini pie cookies. Feel free to use whatever you have on hand; a cup or mug could work well, too! Or a heart-shaped cookie cutter if you're looking to ~impress~. As usual, follow me on insta here if you'd like to see more pics of my hand holding various foods.

Ingredients
  • 2 pie crusts (dairy free)
  • 1 cup fruit preserves
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1 cup powdered sugar (optional)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Cut the pie crusts into circles using a mason jar or cup. Make sure there's an even number.
  3. Spread a bit of preserve onto each circle (just on half of them).
  4. Spread a little water around the edges of each cookie and layer the plain circle on top of the preserves. Press each edge in with a fork to seal it and make it #fancy.
  5. Bake for 10 minutes. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve as dessert, or dip in peanut butter for a wacky PB&J.
