The secret to this recipe is to preheat the oven for the first time when you’re ready to bake the cookie—Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and coat it with non-stick cooking spray.

Combine the flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, and cinnamon in a large bowl. Add the shortening and cut it into the dry ingredients with a pastry cutter.

Use a fork to mix the dough until it becomes a crumbly mixture. Take the bowl off the mixer and knead the dough with your hands until it forms a ball.

Roll the ball of dough into a 1/4-inch thick disk, and then cut the dough into circles with a cookie cutter. Place the cookie dough circles onto the prepared baking sheet. Bake the cookies for 12-14 minutes. When the baking is done, remove the baking sheet from the oven. Let the cookies cool completely before storing them in an airtight container.

Frozen pie crust cookies are much easier to handle than fresh ones and don’t dry out as quickly. This makes them perfect for all events and parties and much easier to carry around.
