Dried Apple Hand Pies
As the dried apple slices rehydrate and cook in each delicate hand pie, they transform into a saucy, concentrated filling. To create a smoother, rather than chunky, apple filling, smash apples with the side of a spoon while stirring.
TO FREEZE: Follow recipe as directed through Step 4. Cut 3 small (1/3-inch-long) vents in top of each pie. Freeze pies on baking sheet, uncovered, 1 hour. Transfer pies to a large ziplock plastic bag; freeze up to 1 month.
TO BAKE FROM FROZEN: Preheat oven to 375°F. Arrange frozen pies at least 2 inches apart on 2 baking sheets lined with parchment paper. Brush lightly with 1 beaten egg; sprinkle evenly with 1 1/4 teaspoons granulated sugar. Proceed with Step 6 as directed.
