A great recipe for dessert or afternoon tea. Perfect for kids it will keep them on the go!
What you’ll need
1 cup apple butter
1 quantity flaky pastry dough
2 tablespoon cream
to sprinkle caster sugar
Roll out the pastry until about 4mm thick and cut into rounds about 10cm in diameter.
Spoon a little of the apple butter in the middle of each round and bring the pastry edges together, pressing to seal in the filling.
Crimp the edges with a fork to close together tightly and then transfer to a baking tray lined with greaseproof paper.
Repeat with remaining pastry rounds until you have used up all the pastry (re-roll and cut the scraps).
Place the tray of uncooked hand pies in the fridge for 20 minutes to rest. You could also freeze them at this point then cook straight from frozen when you fancy – easy!
Preheat oven to 180C.
Make an egg wash by whisking together the cream and egg.
Brush this over the hand pies and sprinkle with the caster sugar.
Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm. Yum!
