I came up with the idea for my mini pie recipes while snacking on applesauce one night and thought it would make a quick and delicious pie filling. They were a total hit and what's better than a mini pie that you can actually hold in your hand to eat? —Kandy Bingham, Green River, Wyoming

1 package (14.1 ounces) refrigerated pie pastry
1/2 cup chunky applesauce
3 teaspoons cinnamon sugar, divided
2 tablespoons butter, cut into 12 pieces
1 tablespoon 2% milk, divided
Preheat oven to 350°. On a lightly floured surface, unroll pastry sheets. Using a floured 3-1/2-in. round cookie cutter, cut six circles from each sheet.
In a small bowl, mix applesauce with 1-1/2 teaspoons cinnamon sugar. Place 2 teaspoons applesauce mixture on one half of each circle; dot with butter. Moisten pastry edges with some of the milk. Fold pastry over filling; press edges with a fork to seal.
Transfer to ungreased baking sheets. Brush tops with remaining milk; sprinkle with remaining cinnamon sugar. Bake 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks. Serve warm or at room temperature.
