Notes

We were able to get 7 circles of dough from one crust and 12 hearts + 3 more circles from the second crust. Re-roll the scraps to make the last 2 circles of dough.
You may not use the full 2 cups of pie filing, depending on how full you fill your muffin tins. 
We use Sugar in the Raw for sprinkling on the top. Regular granulated sugar also works.
