What You Need

1
pkg.  (8 oz.) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, cubed
1
cup  cold butter or margarine, cut into chunks
2
cups  flour
1
can  (20 oz.) pear slices in juice, undrained
1
pkg.  (3.9 oz.) JELL-O Pumpkin Spice Flavor Instant Pudding

Make It

CUT cream cheese and butter into flour in large bowl with pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Shape into ball; wrap tightly. Refrigerate several hours or until firm.

HEAT oven to 450°F. Divide dough in half. Roll out each half on lightly floured surface to 1/4-inch thickness; cut into 24 rounds with 3-inch cookie cutter, rerolling scraps as needed. Gently press 1 round onto bottom and up side of each of 24 mini muffin pan cups.

DRAIN pears, reserving 2 Tbsp. juice. Chop pears; place in medium bowl. Add reserved juice and dry pudding mix; toss to evenly coat pears. Spoon into crusts. Cover with remaining dough rounds; press edges together to seal.

BAKE 10 to 12 min. or until golden brown. Cool in pan 5 min. before transferring to wire racks to cool.
