Delicious things to make with leftover Glutino gluten-free Perfect Pie Crust
So you’ve made the perfect gluten-free pumpkin pie for your Thanksgiving dinner—using Glutino’s Perfect Pie Crust mix, of course. But now you have a dilemma: You have some leftover pie crust dough, and you don’t know what to do with it. Don’t waste that delicious gluten-free dough! Try these tasty, simple ideas to put that dough to good use.
- Bake some simple cookies. Shape the leftover dough into balls, or use your favorite cookie cutters. Press some chopped nuts into the cookies, or sprinkle them with colored sugar, and then bake.
- Try some “pie fries.” Make these pie fries by cutting your extra dough into strips and sprinkling with cinnamon sugar, then baking.
- Make chocolate pastries. Roll the leftover dough about 1/8” thick. Cut it into triangles. Sprinkle triangles with gluten-free chocolate chips, like Enjoy Life’s chocolate morsels, fold them into a croissant-like shape, and bake.
- Make delish cinnamon rolls. This recipe is the perfect way to use up those dough scraps! These make a great snack or breakfast food.
- Make mini quiches. Press whatever dough you have left into mini muffin tins. Fill with your favorite quiche ingredients—eggs, veggies, cheese, sliced ham, and/or shredded bacon, and bake until done.
- DIY cheese crackers. Roll the dough 1/8” thick and cut it into squares. Brush on melted butter, sprinkle on a little coarse salt, and bake.
- Make homemade breadsticks. Roll dough into long strips. Brush on a little melted butter, sprinkle on your favorite herbs, and bake.
- Yummy pigs in blankets. Wrap the leftover pie dough around a gluten-free cocktail weenie or hot dog chunk, then bake them.
