Star Studded Mini Pies

I know this is a little late for the 4th of July, but these little pies are so good, I couldn't wait to put them on here. I have made these treats two years in a row for the 4th of July celebration. They are so tasty! Perfect size and super delicious! I imagine your could even do mini pumpkin pies with leaves cut out for Thanksgiving! The possibilities are endless!

Star Studded Mini Pies
(Recipe from Our Best Bites)
2 boxes refrigerated pie crust
Canned pie filling
2 T butter, melted
1/4 c granulated sugar
Preheat oven according to pie crust recipe. Roll out your pie crust so it is fairly thin. Using a cookie cutter, or a cup with about a 3 1/2 inch diameter, cut out circles of dough. Place each dough circle center in one of the mini-muffin tin wells. The edge should over-hang a little. Gently roll the edge down with your fingers and then crimp it so it looks pretty. Using a spoon, fill each mini pie a little over half full with filling. Roll out more dough to cut your stars. Use a star cookie cutter that is about 2 inches across. Cut your stars out. Dip the stars (both sides) in butter and then dredge in the sugar. Place a star on top of each little pie. Bake your pies for 15-20 minutes or until the edges are golden brown.
