DON'T THROW OUT THAT SCRAP PIE CRUST!

Do you have scrap pieces of crust left over when making a pie? Don't throw it out use it! I had a small piece left this morning while making a chicken pie for dinner tonight & really didn 't want to just scrap it. So, I decided to bake a personal pie just the size for two. I sauteed one peeled apple
with the juice of half a lemon,
1 teaspoon of sugar,
a dash of nutmeg, a dash of cinnamon,
and 1 tablespoon of butter.
I let it cool and then placed it in the center of the crust.
I baked it at 350 for 20 minutes & then we had it after lunch! It was so easy & just the right size for us two.



Think outside the box today and see what you can come

up with for your leftovers. I can't wait to hear about it.

Fun and YUM! I have some leftover cookie dough at the moment but can only think of making Christmas sugar cookies, and it's a tad early for that ...

Looks delicious. Thanks for sharing. When I was a kid, my mom would cut shapes from the scrap pie crust and dust it with a cinnamon sugar mixture. Very simple, but it was delicious to my sister and me!
