box Pillsbury™ refrigerated pie crusts, softened as directed on box
2 1/2
cups cubed fresh pineapple
teaspoon cornstarch
teaspoon five-spice powder
  • 1 Remove pie crusts from pouches; unroll on work surface or cutting board. With 4-inch cookie cutter, cut 5 rounds or shapes from each crust. In 5 of the rounds, cut out shape with small cookie cutter or prick with tines of fork to allow steam to escape.
  • 2 In medium bowl, stir together pineapple, cornstarch and five-spice powder until combined. Divide pineapple mixture evenly among plain dough rounds. Top each round with cutout or pricked round; press edges firmly with fork to seal. Place on cookie sheet; freeze 30 minutes.
  • 3 Heat gas or charcoal grill. Remove pies from freezer; place on grill-safe baking or pizza stone.
  • 4 Place baking stone on grill over medium-high heat. Cover grill (leaving vent open if using charcoal grill); cook 10 minutes or until crusts are fully cooked and crisp. Remove from baking stone to cooling rack; cool completely. Store in airtight container.
