Apple Hand Pie
With apples tossed in sugar, butter and cinnamon, these easy apple hand pies come together in less than 30 minutes. (Recipe Credit: Marc Matsumoto of Fresh Tastes.)
- 1 fuji apple (peeled cored and cut into 16 slices) 250 grams
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 2 teaspoons flour
- 2 tablespoons melted butter
- 1 tablespoon flour
- 2 teaspoon water
- 6X-inch tortillas
- 1 tablespoon butter (at room temperature)
- 1 tablespoon coarse raw sugar
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
- Toss the apples together with the sugar and cinnamon.
- Stir the butter and 2 teaspoons of flour together and then pour the mixture over the apples. Toss to coat evenly.
- Mix 1 tablespoon of flour together with 2 teaspoons of water until you have a thick glue with no lumps.
- Spread 1/2 teaspoon of butter onto one side of each tortilla. Place three tortillas buttered side down on a non-stick baking sheet and then load the center of each one with half of the apples.
- Spread the flour paste around the rim of the tortilla using your finger and then top each one with another tortilla, buttered side up. Use a fork to crimp the edges shut, using another hand to hold the edges of the tortilla down. If your tortillas are a bit stale like mine were, you may have a bit of trouble getting them to seal without tearing a hole in them, but aside from making them look a bit rustic, they'll bake up just fine.
- Sprinkle the coarse sugar on top of each hand pie and bake for 20-25 minutes or until the pies are golden brown.
