From Better Homes and Gardens, June 2002. It is recommended that you make the filling at the last minute so that it does not get too juicy. The picture in the magazine shows them made flower-shaped and they are indescribably cute! I'm sure you could squeeze more pies out of this recipe by re-rolling your extra dough as well.

  7. Repeat, using 1 Tbs of water at a time, until dough is moistened.

  19. Seal edges with a fork.
  20. Prick tops of pies as well to allow the escape of steam.
