+ 1 (15-ounce) package refrigerated folded ready-to-use pie crusts (2 crusts)
+ 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened

+ 1/3 c. lemon curd (see NOTE)
What to do:
1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Coat 2 baking sheets with cooking spray.
2. Unfold pie crusts onto a lightly floured surface. Using a 3-inch round cookie cutter, cut 9 to 10 circles from each crust. Place dough circles on baking sheets.
3. Bake 7 to 9 minutes, or until golden. Remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
4. In a medium bowl, combine cream cheese and sugar; mix well. Spread evenly over cookies, leaving a small untopped border around edges. Spread lemon curd evenly over cream cheese layer and serve, or cover and chill until ready to serve.
* NOTE: If you aren't sure where to find lemon curd in your supermarket, check the jam and jellies section of your supermarket!
