Roll the cookie dough out to about 1/4 thickness. Cut into 4" squares. Cut the squares in to 6 wedges for the 'pie' pieces. You can use a different size pie cutter, but then your cookies will be smaller or larger.
Bake the cookies according to directions.
Tint the frosting orange with the red and yellow food dyes. Frost the entire wedge with orange.
Now, add the 'pie edge'. Tint some more frosting with some yellow and a little red and blue to make the color close to the cookie color - a light tan. Either use a pastry bag with tip, or put the frosting into a recloseable bag and trim off the corner so you can pipe the frosting on the outside edge of the cookie to look like the edge of the pie crust. Move slowly up and down with an 'm' like shape to make it look like a crimped pie crust.
Finish up the cookie by adding a 'dollop' of white frosting for the whipped cream.
