Yes, you can! You can probably skip rolling out the dough. Most store bought pie crusts already come flat, all you would need to do is cut out the circles. Not sure about rolling the scraps back together though.

It depends on the filling. If the filling is runny, no. If the filling is on the thicker side, I would say try it. You want the filling to be thick so that it doesn’t ooze out. If the pre-made filling is runny, try putting it on the stove and thickening it in a pot. Evaporating some of the liquids could help.
