Almost a month ago,I made these beautiful Strawberry nutella hand pies  and they were a big hit! My daughter absolutely loved them. So,she asked me if we could make cookies with her new cookie cutters. You see, she is my assistant and she needs her(actually mine) cookie cutters. As I was trying to find an easy cookie recipe, I thought of that pie crust.

Anna put her Doc Mcstuffins robe,her cute little rolling pin and her cookie cutters and she was waiting for the dough to be ready.

One of the great things about this pie crust is the fact that rolls easily and is buttery and flaky. She made her own cookie shapes and I made mine. It was so much fun! Adding some chocolate chips to the dough and top it with some strawberry-orange sauce. These cookies melt in your mouth!
