Apple Hand Pies From Scratch

Hi! Last weekend I tried a recipe that I saw on Pinterest. I decided to give it a try and I have to say that it turned out really good! I made the dough from scratch but you can also buy a prepared pie dough. Let me know if you try this, believe me it's delicious!


For the dough:
250 gr flour
125 gr butter
a pinch of salt
zest of half a lemon
100 gr white sugar
1 egg + 1 egg yolk

For the filling:
2 apples (I used Granny Smith)
10 gr butter
1 tbs white sugar
1 tbs brown sugar
pinch of salt
cinnamon to taste
1 tbs water

Pre-heat oven to 200°C


Mix all the ingredients for the dough together and when a solid ball is formed put it in the fridge for 30 minutes.

Peel and cut the apple in small pieces and cook them with the butter, white sugar, brown sugar, salt and cinnamon until they become very soft. Let them rest until cold.

Form a dough piece into a ball, place on a floured work surface, and roll into a circle. Spoon the apple filling in the center. Fold dough over filling, and gently press dough closed around the filling, using your fingertips and then pich with a fork. 

Transfer pies onto a prepared baking sheet. Whisk an egg in a small bowl and brush the top of each hand pie with it, then sprinkle with brown sugar. Cut 3 small vent holes in the top of each pie. 

Bake in the preheated oven (200°C) until pies are golden brown, about 15 minutes. Let cool before serving.

Et voilà! Delicious apple hand pies!
Love, Fede
