Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with a silicone mat or parchment paper; set aside.
In a large bowl, beat cream cheese and 2 tablespoons of sugar until well combined. Mix in the vanilla; set aside.
Roll out the pie crust to 1/8-inch thin. Cut into 3.5-inch rounds. Fill each circle with about a teaspoon of cream cheese. Fold over and crimp with a fork to seal. Re-rolls scraps and continue filling until the pie crust is used.
In a small bowl, combine 1/2 cup sugar and cinnamon. Dip one side of each pie into melted butter, then into sugar. Place cinnamon-sugar side up on prepared baking sheet and bake for 10-15 minutes or until crust is no longer raw. Watch carefully after 10 minutes or filling may begin to leak.
