Cherry Cutie Pies

     Another yummy treat I made for my daughter's A Very Hungry Caterpillar Birthday Party were these cute Cherry Pies.  Miss Momma-to-be liked these as well, so I made her some!

What you need:

1 21 oz can of cherry pie filling
1 cup dried cranberries
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp almond extract (I didn't add this, since I don't like the flavor)
1 15 oz package rolled refrigerated unbaked pie crust (2 crusts)
nonstick cooking spray
coarse sugar

How to make them:

Preheat oven to 375˚F.
Combine pie filling, dried cranberries, vanilla, and almond extract (if adding).
Unroll pie crusts.
Cut twelve 2 3/4 inch rounds out of one of the pie crusts. 
Press into a mini muffin pan sprayed with nonstick cooking spray.
Fill with some of the cherry filling.
Brush edges of pastry with milk.
Cut twelve 2 1/4 inch rounds out of the other pie crust.
Cut a 1/2 inch heart, star, or flower out of the center of each smaller round.
Place rounds over filling and press edges of the pastries together.
Flue the edges, if desired.
Brush with milk, sprinkle with coarse sugar.
Bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until fruit mixture is bubble and are golden brown.
Let cool then ENJOY!
