Miss Lovett's Meat Pies

One of my favorite things to do with a few of my friends every Halloween is to watch Sweeney Todd.  Its a gruesome musical that brings in the Halloween Spirit, without being to scary.  Every time we watch it we make these pies.
Meat Pies 
The Ingredients:
1 pkg. Cresent Big Flakey Rolls
1 pkg. Jimmy Deans Regular Sausage
1 Medium Onion
1 pkg. of Cheddar Cheese

First, preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  In a saute pan, take a little drizzle of olive oil and spread it on the pan, heat the pan and add your chopped onions to the pan, saute them until they are golden brown.

 Next, add the sausage and saute them until it is completely cooked with the onions. Set aside when done.
 For the pies, take a cupcake pan, and peel apart all the crescent rolls.  Place one crescent roll per cupcake tin and push down into the tin.  You can do this two ways, you can either push it down and make it into a pie with extra on the side, or you can leave some left over with the extra strip hanging off the side.
 Next, fill each pie with the meat mixture.
Next, add a slice of cheese to each meat pie.  Then take the extra end piece and wrap it over the top, pinch it with the side to seal the top.
 If you decide to use one crescent roll for the whole piece, then tear off a third of an extra piece of crescent roll and play it on the top.  Pinch together the sides making it a complete pie.
This is what it should look like when its done, once finished place in the oven for suggested time and let cool for 2 minutes in the pan.  Take out of pan and serve!
