What You'll Need to Make These Mini Apple Pies

Mini Apple Hand Pie Step #1:

Take a floured rolling pin and roll out puff pastry dough to about 1/8" thickness. Cut dough forms with an apple shaped cookie cutter.

Mini Apple Hand Pie Step #2:

Place about a tablespoon of apple mixture  into the center of the bottom crust of the apple cut outs. 

Mini Apple Hand Pie Step #3:

Place one of the apple cut outs on top, lining the edges and pressing with finger to lightly seal the edges. Take a fork and press down around the edges of mini pie to seal.

Mini Apple Hand Pie Step #4:

With a sharp knife, cut three slits into the center of the pie. This allows air to escape and will prevent the filling from oozing from the edges of the pies.

Mini Apple Hand Pie Step #5:

Place pies on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Once all pies are assembled, brush the top crust with egg wash.

Mini Apple Hand Pie Step #6:

Bake pies in the oven for about 15 minutes or until pie crust is golden brown and flaky and filling is warm & bubbly. Allow the pies to cool for several minutes and then enjoy!
