Cinnamon Sugar Pie Dough Cookies
Roll dough scraps out to 1/4-inch thick and cut into strips or use a cookie cutter to cut out shapes. Brush with melted butter and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
Bake at 400°F on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet for 8 to 12 minutes, until bottom edges are golden brown.
Jam Pop Tarts
Roll out scraps to 1/8-inch thick and cut into squares or rectangles. Add a dollop of jam to the center of half of the pieces. Place tops over the jam and crimp with a fork to seal. Poke with a fork a few times to allow steam to escape.
Bake at 400°F on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet for 10 to 15 minutes until golden. Cool for at least 5 minutes and mix powdered sugar and milk together (about 1 teaspoon milk per 1/4 cup powdered sugar) until a thick glaze forms.
Spread over the tops of the pop tarts and add sprinkles.
Roll dough out to 1/8-inch thick and cut about 3-inch rounds. Put a few chocolate chips in the center, fold edges up, and pinch to seal.
Bake at 400°F on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet until golden brown, 10 to 12 minutes. As soon as they are cool enough to handle, drop into powdered sugar and toss to coat.
Pizza Roll Ups
Roll leftover pie dough into a rectangular(ish) shape 1/8-inch thick. Spoon on a thin layer of red sauce, top with mozzarella, Parmesan, and pepperoni.
Roll tightly and secure by poking wooden toothpicks through the center every 1 1/2 inch. Cut between toothpicks and bake at 400°F (leaving the toothpicks in the rolls) on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet for 10 to 15 minutes until golden. Remove toothpicks and enjoy!
