while these are very good, I think the next time I make them, I will roll the dough out thinner so there is more filling and less dough.

What they don't want you to know is that I submitted this recipe and name pie poppers on their last contest and they took it and called it their own. I will never submit another recipe again when this is what they end up doing. To all of us that have ever submitted a recipe to their contest we deserve honorable mentions. Good luck. Those of you who like this idea I would like the credit for it not Pillsbury or General Mills. It's a great idea isn't it? I guess they thought so enough to use it. Nice creative department they have on staff.

Made these for my parents 50th wedding anniversary party to put on the dessert table and they went like hot cakes. I used the pie filling that had 'more fruit' in it and had about 1/3 can left after each batch. They were easy to make. The toughest part was figuring how to divide the pie dough. These would be much better than serving a big pie for picnics and BBQ's.

I found that a thicker filling did best, so I used a stick blender in a can of pie filling, added 2-3 tsp of cornstarch and adjusted to taste using cinammon, all spice, etc. I used 2 boxes (4 pie crusts) to almost one whole can of filling, yield 48 poppers. I also used Pioneer Woman Vanilla Bean Scone Icing. Got rave reviews from tasters all weekend. They freeze wonderfully.

I have made these a couple of times and everyone loves them. I used strawberry-blackberry jam and they were absolutely delicious.

Being diabetic, I used sugar free apple pie filling with a dash of apple pie filling spice, and when baked instead of the frosting, used about 1 tsp. of Walden Farms Blueberry Pancake syrup with a sprinkle of Splenda on top of that. Could also use the sugar free Cherry pie filling. If using frosting for the cherry filling add to the frosting 1 tsp. cherry flavoring/extract.

We're having a High Tea at our church in Feb., & I made these to try at our tea tasting. They were a big hit, I made them with apple pie filling. Everyone voted to have them at our High Tea.

Thank you Pillsbury for making baking so much easier! Love these Pie Poppers and will make them again. I used Apricot and Apple filling and made mine more like a filled cookie.

Quick easy yummy dessert. If you are watching your calories these are great for dessert and you can freeze the leftovers and eat them another day.

This is a clever, easy way to make pie! I love pie! It's what I choose for my birthday cake, rather than a cake. I'm going to a birthday saturday and will take some as my grandkids love cherry pie and I have pie crust on hand as well as pie filling. I have always loved the crust on pie a little more than the filling...but will roll the crust a little thinner and try to get a little more filling in. I think I will try some variation on the glaze...just dusting with powdered sugar or depending on the filling...a little cinnamon and sugar.
