Piggies (sugar And Cinnamon Pie Dough Cookies)


  • Servings: 2
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup shortening
  • 2 tablespoons warm water, or as needed
  • 1 tablespoon shortening
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • ground cinnamon


    Preparation Time: 20 mins Cook Time: 10 mins Ready Time: 40 mins

  • preheat oven to 450 degrees f (230 degrees c). spray a baking sheet with cooking spray, or line with parchment paper.
  • mix flour and salt together in a bowl, and use a pastry cutter to cut in 1/3 cup of shortening until the mixture forms pea-size balls. with a fork, form a small well in the center of the mixture, and pour in water, a couple of teaspoons at a time, and stir with the fork to mix in the water and form a dough. incorporate each addition of water before adding the next, until about 3/4 of the flour mixture has formed a stiff dough. work a little more water in with your hands, and shape the dough into a ball.
  • working on a well-floured work surface with a floured rolling pin, roll the dough out into a rectangle about 12 by 16 inches, and about 1/8-inch thick. spread 1 tablespoon of shortening over the surface of the dough with a soft spatula, and sprinkle sugar all over the dough square. sprinkle the dough with cinnamon. pick up a long edge of dough, and tightly roll the dough into a log shape. with a sharp knife, slice the log into 3/4-inch thick slices. place the slices onto the prepared baking sheet.
  • bake in the preheated oven until the cookies are lightly browned and sizzling on the bottom, about 8 minutes. cool on paper towels; freeze extras for later.
