Phases of the Moon ~ Pie Crust Cookies


Sophia is learning Astronomy as part of their
final Science unit this year!

I love Astronomy!

To help her learn the phases of the moon,
we took left over pie crust (from the Patriotic Pie Crust Stars)
and made these pie crust cookies in the form
of each moon phase....how fun!



I took a round cookie cutter and let her cut out each
shape to match the diagram we used as a guide below. 

We used an Oreo cookie for the "New Moon"
(Sophia's Idea..good one too!!)



We had a great time.
When baking, we brushed the pie crust with
milk and topped with white sanding sugar to make it stand out.

LOVE YOU TO THE MOON & BACK!


Next, we made "planet cookies" which I will share 
soon...those turned out AWESOME too!  Thanks!!
