Apple Blintz Hand Pies

  • ACTIVE: 30 MIN
  • TOTAL TIME: 1 HR 30 MIN
  • SERVINGS: makes 12 hand pies

These sweet little pies have a lovely filling that combines tart and sweet apples with farmer cheese and cinnamon.

  1. 1 1/2 tablespoons all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
  2. 1 pound all-butter puff pastry
  3. 1 Granny Smith apple, peeled and coarsely grated
  4. 1 Pink Lady apple, peeled and coarsely grated
  5. 3 tablespoons sugar, plus more for dusting
  6. 1/2 cup farmer cheese
  7. 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
  8. Pinch of salt
  9. 1 large egg, beaten
  1. On a lightly floured work surface, roll out the pastry to a 12-by-16-inch rectangle and cut out twelve 4-inch squares. Transfer the squares to a baking sheet and freeze until firm, 10 minutes. In a bowl, toss the apples with the sugar, farmer cheese, cinnamon, salt and 1 1/2 tablespoons of flour.
  2. Preheat the oven to 375°. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Brush the edges of the squares with the egg and mound 2 tablespoons of the apple filling on each one. Fold to form triangles and press to seal. Freeze until firm, about 15 minutes.
  3. Using a fork, crimp the edges of the triangles. Brush the tops with egg and sprinkle with sugar. Cut 3 small slits in each to release steam. Bake until golden and crisp, about 30 minutes, shifting the pans halfway through. Let cool, then serve.
