Chew on This | Apple Hand Pies and a GIVEAWAY!!!!!

This Giveaway is now closed.


Don't you love them?

Granny Smith are my favorite.  Mimi's favorite are McIntosh.

Apple pie.  Apple dumplings.  Apple tarts.  Apple cake.  Stuffing with apples.  Caramel apples.  Apples dipped in caramel.   Applesauce....need I say more?

Here's something new I tried today.  Apple Hand Pies.  

They're all the rage.  So I hear.

Aren't they adorable?

Want to know how very easy they were to make?  Take a look.

I know!

I happened into the local Williams-Sonoma and saw this and had to get it.

This is what I did.  Store bought pie crust - rolled out slightly.

I took the pie mold and cut out the two different apple shapes.

Open pie mold and place dough inside.

Next, fill dough with pie filling and place decorative, cut-out dough on top.

Close pie mold and press.  Make sure to press hard enough to seal dough pieces.

Tah-dahhh!  How cute is this?
I actually trimmed the excess dough, that pushed out from the mold, with a  knife to get a clean edge.

I placed the pies on a cookie sheet, coated with an egg wash and sprinkled with sugar.

Delicious!!  Would you love to try this out too?

We thought this was so much fun!

We thought you should have some fun too!!!


One Williams-Sonoma Apple shaped pie mold
