These are so easy and fun to make. I got the recipe out of an old Pillsbury Cookbook that focused on making recipes using refrigerated biscuit dough. The last time I made them, I was watching my neighbor's twin boys (they're 4 years old), and they got to help with these. They were just thrilled and felt like actual chefs. I think it was almost like playing with play dough for them. They got to take a plate home to their parents and they were so proud. This recipe says to make them in regular-sized muffin tins, however, you can also use mini muffin tins. If you do use mini muffin tins, you'll use the same method except that you will split each biscuit of dough in half. Then roll it out just slightly (not into a 4-inch circle) and place the dough into the mini muffin tins. Also, you'll obviously have to decrease the amount of pie filling and streusel you put on the minis, too.
