walnut pie crust cookies Walnut Pie Crust Cookies came about in my house when I was a child.  I told my mom, at the last minute, that I needed to bring a treat to school the next day. There was no time to go to the grocery store for ingredients. So, my mom gathered a few things she had in the kitchen and came up with these wonderful cookies!

Walnut Pie Crust Cookies are extremely easy to make! Unroll refrigerated pie crust, brush it with melted butter, top with brown sugar and ground walnuts, cut into 12 wedges, roll up like crescent rolls and bake for 10 minutes! Cool for another 10 minutes, then sprinkle the cookies with powdered sugar.

The cookies were a hit with my classmates! (Nobody in my class was allergic to nuts at that time, so it was safe to bring these!) Walnut Pie Crust Cookies been a favorite dessert in my family ever since! These cookies are perfect for entertaining, when you need to bring something to an event, or for any holiday!
