Take another cut out piece of dough and lay on top of filling and pinch edges so there is a seal.

Bake mini pie poppers on parchment lined sheet tray for 12-15 min or till golden brown on top (varies depending oven) Nutella (Chocolate Hazelnut Spread)
1 2/3 cup hazelnuts
1 1/2 cup whole milk
7/8 cup powdered whole milk
2 tablespoons mild-flavored honey
pinch of salt
7 ounces bittersweet or semisweet chocolate, chopped
6 ounces (140g) milk chocolate, chopped (use one that's at least 30% cacao solids)
Spread the nuts on a baking sheet. Toast the nuts in a 350ºF (180ºC) oven, stirring a few times, for 10 to 15 minutes, until the hazelnuts are browned.
While they are toasting, warm the whole milk and powdered milk in a small saucepan with the honey and salt just until it starts to boil. Remove from heat.
In a bowl set over a double boil, melt the chocolates together until smooth.
Once the nuts are well-toasted, remove them from oven and use a spatula to place the warm hazelnuts in a clean tea towel, then fold them inside the towel and rub them vigorously to remove any loose skins. They don't need to be perfect; just try to get as much off as possible.
In a food processor, grind the warm hazelnuts and almonds until they're as fine as possible. You may not be able to get them completely smooth, depending on your food processor
Add the melted chocolate and continue to process the mixture, stopping to scrape down the sides of the work bowl, as necessary.
Once the mixture is smooth, add the warm milk mixture and process until everything is well-combined.
*You can strain the paste, to remove little hazelnut pieces to get smooth or leave to keep textured.
Place in a air tight container or jar, and refrigerate for at least 6 hours before use.
