  • 2 large apples, peeled, cored and diced small
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1/2 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 3/4 tablespoon flour
  • 1 loaf white bread (about 17 slices), crusts removed

Add raisins or chopped nuts into the mixture to change it up.

How to make it

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.  

  2. In a large skillet over medium heat cook butter, apples, brown sugar and cinnamon for about 4 minutes. Sprinkle in flour, stir and cook for about 2 minutes more or until apples are tender. Place mixture into a bowl and set aside to cool.

  3. Using a rolling pin, roll each slice of bread until it is thin and flat (this ensures that the bread is pliable). Place about 1 teaspoon of apple mixture into the center of each slice of bread. Wet two of the edges of each slice of bread with a little bit of water. Fold the slice of bread diagonally to that it forms a triangle. Firmly press the edges of the bread together creating a tight seal. Place hand-pies onto prepared baking sheet. Brush each of the hand-pies with the remaining melted butter.

  4. Bake until golden brown, about 15 minutes.
