  • 1
    Heat oven to 425°F. Line cookie sheet with cooking parchment paper. Remove one crust from pouch. On lightly floured surface, unroll crust, and roll to 12-inch circle. With 3 1/2-inch round cutter, cut 6 rounds from crust; repeat for remaining crust. Press circles into 12 ungreased regular-size muffin cups. Reserve crust scraps for star cutouts.
  • 2
    Spoon 2 generous tablespoonfuls cherry pie filling into 6 of the muffin cups. Spoon 2 generous tablespoonfuls blueberry pie filling into remaining 6 muffin cups.
  • 3
    Bake 18 to 22 minutes or until golden brown and filling is bubbly. Cool completely in pan, about 1 hour. With knife, loosen edges; remove mini pies from muffin cups.
  • 4
    Meanwhile, use 1 1/2- to 2-inch star cookie cutters to cut 12 to 24 cutouts from remaining dough, rerolling scraps as needed. Place cutouts on cookie sheet; lightly brush with water, and sprinkle with decorating sugar.
  • 5
    Bake 5 to 7 minutes or until golden brown. Transfer to cooling rack to cool completely while pies are cooling.
  • 6
    Before serving, top each with 2 teaspoons whipped topping and sprinkles; top each with 1 to 2 pie crust stars.

Expert Tips

  • Use a very small ice cream scoop to fill cups with pie filling.
  • Decorate pie crust stars with a combination of red, white and blue sugar for a patriotic look, or get creative with your own combination of red, white and blue stars.
  • Serve pies with small scoop of ice cream instead of whipped topping, if desired.
  • Use remaining pie filling as topping for ice cream or brownies.
