Servings 9 pies


  • 2 9" Pie Crusts
  • 1 egg

Apple Filling:

  • 4 cups apples peeled, cut into 1/2" cubes
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp ground cloves

Cinnamon Sugar Topping

  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tsp granulated sugar


  • In a small bowl, mix cinnamon sugar mixture and set aside.
  • Add all of the ingredients for the apple filling to a saucepan over low heat. Stirring frequently, cook for 15-20 minutes until apples are soft and liquids are syrupy. Remove from heat and let cool.
  • Pull the pie dough out of the fridge while the apples are cooling. Roll each pie dough into a 9" x 9" square and cut into 9 equal squares. This will give you a total of 18 squares between both.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Once the pie filling has cooled, place about 2 tbsp of filling into the middle of the pie crust square. Repeat with 9 of the squares. Then, top each pie square with remaining squares. Using a fork, pinch all sides to seal. Poke top of pies with fork to create vents.
  • Whisk egg in a small bowl and brush tops of pies with the egg wash. Then, sprinkle with cinnamon sugar mixture.
  • Bake pies in the oven for about 23-25 minutes until golden. When done, remove from oven and transfer to a cooling rack.
  • Serve warm Mini Apple Hand Pies with vanilla ice cream! Enjoy!
