Apple Hand Pies



These Apple Hand Pies are some of the easiest pie to make. The apple filling is slightly sweet, tart and flavored with some cinnamon, nutmeg and all-spice. The pastry is buttery with a delicate crunch in every bite.




Apple Hand Pies

Ingredients

Filling
3 Apples, peeled, cored, and small chunks
1/8 tsp Grd Nutmeg
1/8 tsp Grd All-Spice
1 tsp Grd Cinnamon
2 Tbsp Butter
A Pinch Of Sea Salt
1 tsp Lemon Juice
4 to 5 Tbsp Cane Sugar
1 tsp Corn Starch

Pastry
1 1/2 Cups All-Purpose Flour
1 tsp Cane Sugar
1/2 tsp Sea Salt
1/2 tsp Grd Cinnamon
113 grams/1 Stick/1/2 Cup Unsalted Butter, chilled & small diced
3 to 4 Tbsp Cold Water

Method

Filling: Combine all the ingredients and cook over moderate heat. Cook until the apples are slightly soften and the sauce has thicken. Let it cool completely and refrigerate for about 2 hours.

Pastry: Combine the flour, sugar, sea salt, and cinnamon in a large mixing bowl. Using a pastry blender or your fingertips, work in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add the cold water a little at a time until the dough is sufficiently moist. Gather the dough lightly with your hand until it just smooth. Press the dough into a thick, flat disk, wrap it in plastic wrap, and chill for at least 30 minutes before rolling

Preheat the oven to 400˚F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Divide the dough into 2 pieces for easier handling. Place the dough on a floured board or surface. Roll out the dough into a rough rectangular shape, (about 28 x 22 cm). Trim the edges and cut into 4 equal size pieces. Place some apple filling in the centre of the pastry. Fold and gently press around the edges. Then seal the edges with a fork. Make 3 slits on the top of the pastry to allow the steam to escape. Continue the process with the remainder pastry and filling. Place all the filled pastry on a baking sheet.

Bake for about 18 to 20 minutes, remove from the oven and let cool slightly before serving.

Makes about 8 to 10 pieces of Apple Hand Pies

Dumplings

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up!

Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
