Sugar Cookie Pie

These are fun and very tasty little cookie pies!

In small oven proof dishes, fresh fruit is topped with sugar cookie dough and then baked into a delicious fruit cookie pie. These are very quick and easy to make.

I tried strawberries, blueberries and mixed berries. I used both fresh fruit and frozen fruit, but the frozen fruit turned out runnier than the fresh. It was still good though.

The fruit gets a sprinkling of brown sugar to balance out the tart flavor.

Then yummy sugar cookie dough is placed on top and then baked until golden brown.

I tried some sprinkled with sanding sugar for decoration and crunch. If you're using a tart berry, like raspberries, it's a nice touch. If you have a sweeter fruit like blueberries or pears, it might be a tad too sweet.

Here they are out of the oven in all their baked fruit and sugar cookie goodness. Yum!

Sugar Cookie Pie

Sugar Cookie Dough:
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup sugar cream
1 egg
3/4 tsp vanilla
1 1/3 flour
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp soda

Fresh raspberries or strawberries (or fruit of your choice)
Brown Sugar

For the dough: Cream together butter and sugar. Add egg and vanilla. Stir in dry ingredients. Form dough into balls and flatten into disks to fit on top of the fruit. (The disk size depends on what size baking dish(es) you're going to use. I made mine in individual baking dishes. You can also make this in a 9x9 pan).

Pat raspberries into the bottom of your baking dish. You'll want to smash them slightly. Sprinkle with brown sugar. Top with dough. Bake for 10 minutes at 450.

* If you want to use strawberries or bulky fruit, cut them into slices and layer them.

I dug into a cookie pie fresh out of the oven, and it was so good. All the fruit variations turned out tasty. I think strawberry was my favorite.
