First, make 1 batch (or a double batch) of the Perfect Pie Crust. Additionally, I recommend the cupcake-size foil tins to help support the pocket pies.
Then, choose your filling(s), and prepare those while the pie crust rests and chills. Each filling is designed to fill 6-8 pocket pies

Microwave the first 3 ingredients together for about 1 minute. Stir until well combined. Add powdered sugar, and stir well. Set aside.
