Mini S’Mores Hand Pie Recipe
Prep Time: 35 Min
Total Time: 45 Min
Makes: 10 pies
1 box Pillsbury® refrigerated pie crusts, softened as directed on box
½ cup graham cracker crumbs (8 graham cracker squares, finely crushed)
¼ cup sugar
3 tablespoons butter, melted
½ cup marshmallow creme
2 tablespoons cream cheese, softened (1 oz)
2 tablespoons sugar
½ cup chocolate chips
Heat oven to 425°F. Line cookie sheet with cooking parchment paper. Unroll pie crusts. With 3-inch round cutter, cut 10 rounds from each crust. In small shallow bowl, mix cracker crumbs and 1/4 cup sugar. Brush both sides of pie crust rounds with butter; dip into crumb mixture to coat.
