Flaky Apple Hand Pies

Prep: 20 minutes plus chilling
Bake: 20 minutes • Serves: 8

1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour plus additional for dusting
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
10 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
6 tablespoons ice water
1 small Granny Smith apple, peeled, cored and chopped
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 large egg
Vanilla ice cream for serving (optional)

1. In food processor, pulse flour, 1 tablespoon sugar and salt until combined. Scatter butter over flour mixture; pulse until butter is cut into flour and resembles pea-size crumbs. Add ice water, 1 tablespoon at a time, pulsing after each addition until mixture holds together; shape into a disk and wrap with plastic wrap. Refrigerate dough 1 hour.

2. Preheat oven to 375°; line rimmed baking pan with parchment paper. In medium bowl, toss apple, cinnamon and remaining 3 tablespoons sugar. Makes about 1 cup.

3. Unwrap dough and place on lightly floured work surface; roll into a 15-inch circle (about 1/8-inch thick). With 3-inch round cookie cutter or glass, cut 10 circles from dough; gather dough scraps, roll out and cut 6 more circles. Place 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon apple mixture in center of 8 circles; top with remaining 8 circles. Seal edges of pies with fork; place on prepared pan.

4. In small bowl, whisk egg; brush tops of pies with egg. With paring knife, cut 2 small vents in top of each pie; bake pies 20 minutes or until golden brown. Makes 8 pies.

5. Serve pies alongside ice cream, if desired.

Dietitian’s Dish Tip(s):
Perfect for on-the-go noshing, these snack-size pies are much better for you than a processed store-bought version. Enjoy the apple goodness, or branch out and try other fruits like pears or whatever is in season where you live.
