Roll dough on lightly floured surface to 1/16-inch thickness. Cut out 34 circles using a 4.5-inch round cutter. Moisten edges with water. Place 1 ounce of Lawrence Foods Blueberry Pie Filling (754050, 754040) in center of each circle. Fold dough in half to enclose filling, pressing to seal with tines of fork.
