1 (15-ounce) package refrigerated piecrusts
1 (8-ounce) container soft cream cheese
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup chopped cranberries
1/2 cup chopped pecans, toasted
1 teaspoon grated orange rind
2 tablespoons powdered sugar


Unfold piecrusts, and press out fold lines. Cut each piecrust into 4 (4-inch) squares, discarding scraps.

Combine cream cheese and next 4 ingredients; spread 1/4 cup mixture onto each pastry square, leaving a 1/2-inch border. Moisten edges with water; fold pastry diagonally over filling, pressing edges to seal.

Crimp edges with a fork. Place on lightly greased baking sheets. Bake at 350° for 18 to 20 minutes or until golden.

Sprinkle with powdered sugar; serve warm or at room temperature.

Note: You can freeze unbaked pies in airtight containers up to 1 month. Bake frozen pastries at 350º for 25 minutes or until golden.
