Too easy to make.

 

1 already made refrigerated pie crust

1 can/jar pie filling (your choice)

 

Let the pie crust sit for 20 minutes on the counter.  Take our of package and unroll on a lightly floured surface.  Use a rolling pin and extend the "circle" at least another inch.

 

Grab a glass or a circle cookie cutter, cut a circle in the pie crust, place a Tablespoon of filling in the center of the circle, wipe a small amount of water around the inside edge and fold over, use end of fork to seal edges.

 

repeat for balance of dough, have some scraps, reroll and you'll probably be able to make one more.

 

place on cookie sheet, no need to grease but you can use parchment to avoid cleaning pan if any filling seeps out.

 

bake 425 deg 10-12 minutes until light golden brown

 

powdered sugar dusted works well or make a glaze using powdered sugar, small amount of butter, and milk, beat with a fork until a frosting/glaze is made then zigzag on top of your treats when cooled.

 

sounds like a lot of work but it's not, basically little pies and you can make quick.  Should yield 8 but that really depends on the size of your cutters.

It's SO yummy.  This pie was "the thing" with the generations of housekeepers when cool whip came into being.

Kool-Aid Pie is my go-to for a quick dessert.   Mix one pack of regular kool-aid with a can of sweetened condensed milk and 8 oz carton of Cool Whip, and pour into graham cracker crust.   Chill before serving.
