Honey Almond Pie Crust cookie sticks

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 45 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 pie crust
  • 6 oz sliced almonds toasted.
  • 6 oz wild honey
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla paste
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg

Instructions

  • Take out the purchased pie crust and set it on the counter to thaw while you work.
  • In a heavy saucepan boil the honey on medium heat until it foams. Continue boiling, whisking constantly, for about 1 minute.
  • Add the nuts, vanilla, and spices and stir well.
  • Pour out on to wax paper and let cool.
  • Press the pie crust into a rectangle shape (no need to roll it too heavily, just enough to get a rectangle shape)
  • Use a pizza cutter to cut the rectangle into 8 additional squares. (you can adjust these shapes as thinly as you like. be sure to reduce the cooking temp, if you reduce the size)
  • Form the cooled nuts (grease or wet your hands so they don't stick to the mixture) into 8 logs.
  • Put the logs on the pie rectangles and roll them up, sealing well.
  • Place on a cookie sheet and bake them in a 350 degree oven for about 25 minutes or until golden brown (if you have thinner cookie sticks reduce that time to about 15 minutes and watch them)
  • Optional: give your cookies an egg wash and sprinkle of sugar prior to baking.

Notes

This is the classic version of these pie crust cookies. This recipe is adaptable to your personal preferences. I like to use finely chopped pecans in place of the almonds and to add a quick icing to these when they come out of the oven.
To make them look a bit prettier (let's face it, these are the most beautiful!) cut the ends of the sticks off so you can see the nuts inside.
