"Sweet dough pies or tarts (depending on what your grandma called them) are very popular in South Louisiana - they are a staple in every cajun kitchen. A co-worker's grandma was kind enough to share her recipe (she will be always be affectionately called the "sweet dough tart queen"). Thanks for sharing your recipe, Mom Gert! I included the three different recipes for the fillings that I've used, but you could use whatever type of filling you prefer. Just make sure it isn't too runny - the best consistency is the same as preserves. You can also use store-bought preserves to save time. The yield depends on how small or large you cut your circles. I use either the vanilla butternut flavoring OR vanilla extract and nutmeg (if you are adventuresome you could use all three, but I never have so I'm not 100% sure of the flavor combination)."
