Ingredients:

2 tablespoons butter

1 teaspoon cinnamon

2” round cookie cutter

4 ounces cream cheese, softened (low-fat is okay)

2 refrigerated pie crusts

3/4 cup sugar, divided

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Equipment:

baking paper

baking sheet

hand mixer

oven

microwave

bowl

wax paper

Cooking instruction summary:

Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Beat cream cheese with a hand mixer until no lumps remain. Mix in 1/4 cup sugar and vanilla. Unroll pie crusts, one at a time. Cut 2” circles of crust, re-rolling as needed. Place half the circles on the prepared cookie sheets. Spoon a little bit of the cheesecake mixture into the center. (I found it easiest to transfer the cheesecake mixture to a ziploc bag with the tip cut off, and pipe it on.) Place the remaining pie crust rounds on top of the filled ones. Use the tines of a fork to press and seal each pie. Bake for 12-14 minutes, until they begin to turn golden. Let cool for just a minute, until you can touch without burning your fingers, but they should still be hot. Meanwhile, melt butter in a microwave safe dish. In a separate bowl, stir together remaining 1/2 cup sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon. Take each still warm pie and brush with butter, then place in the cinnamon sugar and turn over a few times to thoroughly coat. Place on another cookie sheet lined with wax paper to cool.
