Ingredients

Filling:

  • 1½ to 2 cups peeled and diced small apples golden delicious, granny smith or honeycrisp
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon apple pie spice
  • 1 pinch kosher salt
  • 1 homemade pie crust
  • Caramel Sauce
  • 1 large egg beaten with 1 tablespoon water for egg wash

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 425 degrees and line two baking sheets with parchment paper or a silpat.
  • In a medium bowl combine the apples, lemon juice, sugar, flour, apple pie spice and a pinch of kosher salt.
  • Roll the pie dough out into a large rectangle about 1/8 of an inch thick. I eyeball it. Using a 3-inch biscuit or cookie cutter, stamp out an even amount of dough rounds. For me it is about 14 to 16. Gather the extra dough scraps into a ball, wrap in plastic wrap and place back into the fridge.
  • Place half of the rounds on one of the prepared baking sheets, spoon a heaping tablespoon of the pie filling onto the center of each. Leaving any liquids from the apples in the bowl. Measure 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of homemade caramel sauce onto the apples before brushing the edges of the of the pie dough with the egg wash.
  • Drape the remaining dough rounds over the filling and crimp the edges with a fork. Brush egg wash over the entire tops and sides of each pie. Use a sharp knife to make two air vents in the top of each pie before sprinkling with sugar.
  • Bake the pies for 15 to 17 minutes.
  • Repeat with the remaining dough and filling, making up to 6 or 8 more pies.
