brontosaurus pies

You know what's great?

When the freezers break at the PCC and your neighbor happens to be there for the mass dispersal of all tubs of ice cream and bags of frozen fruit. When that happens, your neighbor invites you over for ice cream (cuz he has 5 containers full of it), and you end up leaving his house full of creamy goodness AND with two enormous bags in hand--one filled with raspberries and one filled with sliced peaches. You promise to use the frozen fruit for good (not evil) and make pies for the neighborhood. (Okay, one pie for the neighbors and one for you.)
Then you do. And because the pie crust recipe is for a 10 inch pie plate and you make two double crust recipes, you have LOTS of all butter dough left and you can cut out as many brontosaurus shapes as you want and put them on top of the pies and make bronto-cookies too. The all-butter pie crust dough puffs up and gets flaky just like a real biscuit and it all tastes so good.
