Mix corn starch and water until blended. Cook cherries and granulated sugar in saucepan on medium heat 7 min., stirring frequently. Stir in corn starch mixture; cook and stir 1 min. or until thickened. Cool completely.
Heat oven to 425ºF. Beat cream cheese product, icing sugar and cocoa powder in medium bowl with mixer until blended.
Unroll 1 pastry sheet onto lightly floured cutting board. Cut into 12 (3-1/2x2-1/2-inch) rectangles. Place in single layer on parchment-covered baking sheet. Spoon cream cheese mixture onto centres of pastry rectangles; top with cherry mixture.
Unroll second pastry sheet and cut into rectangles as directed. Use lattice cutter to cut designs in pastry to within 1/4 inch of edges.
Brush edges of cherry-topped pastry rectangles with egg; top with remaining pastry rectangles. Firmly press edges of pastries together to seal. Brush with any remaining egg. Sprinkle with coarse sugar.
Bake 18 to 20 min. or until golden brown. Cool slightly.

Mini Chocolate-Raspberry Pies
Prepare recipe as directed, substituting raspberries for the cherries.
Sprinkle filling for each pie with 1/2 tsp. chopped walnuts before covering with the second pastry rectangle and sealing.
