Gluten Free Cinnamon and Sugar Valentine’s Day Pie Crust Cookies

Pillsbury-Gluten-Free-Dough Now that the holiday season has come and gone, I am already starting to create Valentine’s Day treats, and crafts. There is just something so uplifting about the pretty pink, reds, and purples that Valentines Day encompasses. I think I may love it so much because when I decorate my home, the colors bring my somewhat dark, and bland home a nice cheery look. I just love hearts, and pretty pops of brights colors!

heart-shaped-pie-cookiesI’m all about baking sweet treats for my children that correlate with seasonal themes that revolve around upcoming holidays. Valentine’s Day is no exception, and yes, I have already been doing some fun experimenting in the kitchen. You may remember my earlier gluten free pinwheel cookies I made -they were such a hit! Well, last night at about midnight I was hit with an awesome idea! Why not roll out some Gluten Free Pastry Dough from Pillsbury, and create some Gluten Free Cinnamon and Sugar Valentine’s Day Pie Crust Cookies?? These heart shaped cookies were sure to be a hit!

Since it has been about a year that my little one was diagnosed with a gluten intolerance, I have been scoping out, and building my personal recipe collection. Since I love to blog, having this site serve as an interactive recipe book has really helped me to grow in my gluten free cooking. I love Pillsbury’s Gluten Free Cookie & Pastry/Pie Dough because it saves me much needed time in the kitchen, and it tastes great!

Heart-Shaped-Pie-Crust-Cookie-RecipeDirections:

Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees.

Line two baking sheets with parchment paper; set aside

Cut out two additional pieces of parchment paper to use for rolling out your dough. Trust me, this will save you time, and headaches if you use this or wax paper!

Roll out your dough to about 1/2 inch thick and cut out heart shapes using your cookie cutter. You will need to repeat the process about 4-5 times. The amount of cookies you make will be dependent on which size cookie cutter you use.

Place dough cookies 1 inch apart on a parchment lined baking sheet-these cookies do not rise so no worries there!

Brush cookies with melted butter, and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar.

Bake for 10-12 minutes (mine took 12 -they will form a light golden brown bottom, and edge

Allow to cool for 20 minutes before eating or they may break.

    My little one has a gluten intolerance too! I recently saw this gluten free dough in the grocery store. I was wondering what I could use it for – and viola – here is your timely post. I will definitely be making these cookies for my sons class and for him.
