Serves: Makes 8 servings

1 1/2 cups Freshly Frozen Aroniaberries
1/2 cup granulated sugar or 1/3 cup of honey
1/2 cup cornstarch
2 boxes refrigerated pie crusts, softened as directed on box
Powdered sugar for dusting, if desired

Cream Cheese Filling:
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat Oven to 350°F. In a saucepan, stir Aronia berries, granulated sugar (honey), and cornstarch over medium heat. Heat to boiling. Cook 15 minutes, stirring constantly until very thick. Unroll pie crusts onto the floured work surface. Cut 4-8 rounds from each crust (approximately 3½-inch rounds). Spoon 2 to 3 teaspoons of Aronia berry mixture on half of each crust. Fold the top half of crust over filling and press edges with a fork to seal. Bake for 15 minutes. Cool and sprinkle with powdered sugar. For cream cheese option, spoon 1 to 2 teaspoons of cream cheese onto crust.
