Make the greatest tiny apple pies with these helpful hints.

I’ll be the first to admit that making pies isn’t my favorite thing to do, so I’ll do anything I can to make this process go as easily as possible. And I’m going to tell you about it!!

  1. Make sure your pie dough isn’t overworked. Simply said, don’t do that. A leathery pie crust is the last thing you want. As a result, refrigerate the dough for at least an hour and dust your work area well. This will make your dough easier to deal with, resulting in less dough handling and better apple hand pies.
  2. For the filling, cook the apples. This is something that people don’t do nearly enough, and it’s a game changer in apple pie. Because apples contain a lot of moisture, if you don’t precook your apple filling, the moisture will leak into the dough and shrivel up, leaving you with a hollow and soggy pie. Sad.

And with that, apple week comes to a close. At least for the time being. There are no guarantees regarding what will happen next week.

Ingredients

  • 1 recipe for a flaky pie crust
  • two eggs (for egg wash)
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature (45 grams)
  • granulated sugar, 1/2 cup (100 grams)
  • 4 peeled golden apples, cut into 1/8 inch thick slices
  • vanilla extract (two tablespoons)
  • cinnamon (1 1/2 teaspoons)
  • 1 lemon’s zest
  • 1 lemon’s juice

because of the maple glaze

  • maple syrup (three tablespoons)
  • 1 teaspoon extract de vanille
  • 2 tablespoons milk (whole)
  • a quarter teaspoon of maple extract
  • 1 1/3–1 1/2 cup powdered sugar (start with 1 1/3 cup and add more if necessary)

Instructions

  1. Prepare the pie dough as directed and divide it into two disks. Refrigerate for at least one hour or up to three days before serving.
  2. Prepare the filling while the pie crust chills. Melt the butter in a large sauce pan over medium-high heat. After the butter has melted, add the sugar and simmer, stirring periodically, for 2 to 3 minutes, or until the sugar has dissolved and begun to caramelize.
  3. Add the apples, cinnamon, and vanilla extract and simmer, stirring often, for 8 to 10 minutes, or until the apples become juicy, their moisture evaporates, and the apples begin to caramelize. Toss the apples with the lemon zest and juice in a mixing dish. Set the bowl of apples aside to cool fully (it’s a good idea to chill the apples in the refrigerator for 30 minutes–the apple filling may be kept for up to 5 days).
  4. Preheat the oven to 350°F and prepare two baking pans with parchment paper when you’re ready to construct your pies. Remove from the equation.
  5. Roll out one pie dough disk to approximately 1/8 inch thickness on a floured work surface. Use a circular cookie cutter (or whatever form you want your pies to be!) to cut out the dough. Cut a circle out of the dough and lay it on a cookie sheet. Fill the middle of the round with roughly a spoonful of apple filling. Place a rough layer of dough on top of the filling, pinching the edges to seal everything in. Press the edges down with a fork, then slit an air hole or two in the top layer with a knife. For the egg wash, mix the eggs with a little water in a small dish. Brush the pies gently with egg wash using a pastry brush.
  6. Using the leftover pie crust and filling, repeat the process. Bake the pies for 10-15 minutes, or until the crust is golden and gently browned.
  7. Make the maple frosting while the pies are baking. In a small mixing basin, whisk together all of the ingredients until smooth. When you scoop it out of the bowl and back down, the consistency should be thick but yet thin enough to create ribbons. Add extra powdered sugar if it’s too thin. Is it too thick? Add additional milk if necessary.
  8. Drizzle or dip the pies in the maple glaze once they’ve cooled. Enjoy with a sprinkling of cinnamon sugar!
