Looking for a pastry thats super simple, totally homemade and out of this world delicious?! Bring on the apple hand pies!When debating what to call these I’ll leave it up to you. But, here’s two names you can use interchangeably for now: Apple Hand Pies aka: Apple Turnovers They could probably go the route of empanadas too! I’ve been chomping at the bit to share these delectable apple treats with you ever since I baked them for my family. They were gone seconds after they came out of the oven. If you have a moment, do let me know which name you think best describes them.

I’m so excited that I have a super reliable pastry dough recipe to use now. Ever since my foray into pies I will forever make my own pastry dough. Please bake my Peach Pie before the summer runs out. Trust me you will be very happy if you make that & these hand pies.


Here's my Perfect Peach Pie other will do! ( @marlameridith )


When I have all the ingredients out & the kitchen is all covered in flour anyway, I typically make a few batches of this pie dough at one go. You can refrigerate it up to a week before you use it, or you can store it in the freezer for a few months. My suggestion is that you have some dough at the ready when you need it. Instead of a canning day…have a dough making day!

    I love that you’re so into pies and make your own pastry dough and are a pie master! That is one thing I never bake is pies. I’d love to snack on one of these though!

    I’m going with Apple Hand Pies! In the spring I made a similar recipe – Rhubarb Hand Pies. I love how you can pick up the entire pie and eat it with no mess! It can almost pass as breakfast too πŸ˜‰
