First step is to roll out your pie dough and cut into individual pie shapes. You can use a round cookie cutter or simply quarter the dough into wedges just like cutting a pie. Next, layer your cheese on each slice and spread a thin layer of mashed potatoes.

Then take your second piece of pie dough and repeat the same cutting pattern to create the tops. I actually rolled mine out to stretch the dough a bit once I made my cuts. This gave me some excess dough which I used to create the cute star shapes. To adhere the top you will pressure the dough together and I used an old fashion forking method to crimp the edges. This is how my mama made hand pies.
