Easter Pie Cookies with Royal Icing

Did you know Southern Baked Pie Dough is amazing in the form of a cookie? The flaky texture combined with the slightly sweet and saltiness yields a kid - and adult - friendly treat. I love to gather the kids in the kitchen for a little cookie-making time on Easter weekend. As we work together cutting out shapes in the dough, this gives me the opportunity to explain the true meaning of Easter.

  

Ingredients: 2 recipes SB Pie Dough  2 egg whites  1 (1-pound) box powdered sugar  1 to 2 tablespoons water 

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Rolle out dough into 2 (12-inch) circles. Cut out desired shapes with Easter cookie cutters. Place cookies on baking sheet. Prick each cookie with the tines of a fork, and bake for 15 minutes, or until golden brown.

Using a stand mixer, beat egg whites with whisk attachment until frothy. Reduce speed and gradually add in the sugar. Once well-combined, turn mixer up to high and beat until stiff peaks form. Add food coloring to icing if desired. 

Place icing in piping bags and decorate cookies, allowing 1 hour for icing to set up. 

Makes: 2 Dozen Cookies

Pairs well with: Chicken Pot Pie or Pot Roast Pie.
