Where do you find these dough disk or can you use a pie crust?

look for them where they sell goya products it's in the freezer section ask the grocer they would tell u ,or any supermarket, it's like pie dough but pie dough is flakier, the disc are already made and they come in 10's so if u see a plastic package that says pastelillos goya ,that them. so good luck , try a spanish market.
