Dried Apple Hand Pies
 
Makes 15
Ingredients
  • Pie Dough, rested and chilled
  • 1 large egg (50 grams)
  • 1 tablespoon (15 grams) water
  • Dried Apple Filling, chilled (recipe below)
  • Garnish: ground black pepper
Instructions
  1. Divide Pie Dough in half, and roll each half to ?-inch thickness. Using a 4½-inch round cutter, cut dough, rerolling scraps once. Place rounds between sheets of parchment paper, and refrigerate for 5 to 7 minutes.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together egg and 1 tablespoon (15 grams) water. Brush edges of dough with egg wash. Place 1½ tablespoons Dried Apple Filling in center of each round. Fold dough over filling, and press edges to seal. Trim edges with a fluted pastry cutter. Place on prepared pan, and freeze.
  4. Preheat oven to 450°F (230°C).
  5. Brush frozen hand pies with egg wash, and garnish with pepper, if desired. Make 3 small vents in top of dough to release steam.
  6. Bake until golden brown, 15 to 18 minutes; serve warm.
