Make these delicious apple pies when you’re missing the taste of your favorite fast food dessert: the ever-present and decade-spanning McDonald's classic apple pie. These little pockets of cinnamon-apple goodness are technically called hand pies, but when something is this delicious, who wants to argue about names?

Author's Notes

Make filling up to 3 days in advance. Store uneaten pies in the fridge in an airtight container. Before eating, reheat in a 400 degree F oven for 5-8 minutes until warmed through and crispy.

Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Peel and finely dice the Green Apples (3) .
Step 2
Sprinkle the apples with Corn Starch (1 Tbsp) and toss until cornstarch is gone.
Step 3
In a large skillet over medium heat, melt the Butter (1/4 cup) . Add the apples, Granulated Sugar (1/3 cup) , Brown Sugar (1/3 cup) , Lemon Juice (1 Tbsp) , Ground Cinnamon (1 tsp) , and Salt (1/4 tsp) . Stir to combine.
Step 4
Add a couple of pinches of Ground Nutmeg (2 pinches) . Stir to combine.
Step 5
Cook down, stirring, until apples are soft and the filling is thickened, around 10 minutes. Remove from heat and let it cool completely.
Step 6
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
Step 7
Make cinnamon sugar sprinkle by combining Granulated Sugar (1 Tbsp) , Ground Cinnamon (1 Tbsp) , and Salt (1 pinch) in another small bowl.
Step 8
Lay the Pastry Dough (2 sheets) out on a piece of parchment paper and cut into 6 even pieces. Cut diagonal slits into half the pieces - these are the tops.
Step 9
Brush the edges of the bottom pieces with Egg (1) and add 2-3 Tbsp of cooled apple filling to each.
Step 10
Add the top piece and press along the sides with a fork to seal, then place your pies in the fridge for 10-15 minutes. This will help the pies to keep their nice, rounded shape.
Step 11
Sprinkle with the cinnamon sugar. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until the tops are golden brown.
Step 12
Let cool and serve.
