Roll each ball of dough into a 6-inch circle and place on an ungreased baking sheet. Use 1-quart Nectarine-Blueberry Pie Filling. For tarts, place about 1/3 cup filling in the center of each circle, spreading filling to about 1-1/2 inches from edges. Bring pastry up and over filling, pleating as necessary, forming a border. For turnovers, spoon filling onto half of the pastry circle to about 3/4 inch from edge. Fold other half of pastry up and over filling. Brush edges with a little milk and seal edges, crimping as desired. Using a sharp knife, make several small slits in the top of each turnover.
