    I personally don’t love standard pie crust so I mix up a little something different for my desserts like this Sugar Cookie Crust, a No Bake Shortbread Crust, Pretzel Crust or graham cracker crust to fill. Whatever you’re making, make it memorable with a pie crust that everyone will be raving about.

    Adapting my Better than the Bakery Sugar Cookie recipe, I created this simple and sweet Sugar Cookie Crust that I know you’re going to love!

    Delightfully thick, pillowy soft and slightly chewy, it makes a great base for any sweet topping. I frequently use this Sugar Cookie Crust to make Fruit Pizza, which is always a summer favorite.

    You can make Sugar Cookie Pie Crust in a pie dish, tart pan {my favorite}, cake pan or in a springform pan for cheesecake.

    Sugar Cookie Pie Crust is easy to make, takes just 12 minutes to bake and looks as pretty as it tastes!
