I’m just going to tell you upfront if you’ve read this far and not jumped to the recipe – these rated a 10/10 on the Amish Hand Pie Scale!

That’s a legit thing in this house, The Amish Hand Pie Scale. Now, most hand pies are fried and that makes them freaking delicious. But mine are baked, only because frying is a lot of work guys and I’m all about less work!

So start by just rolling out that pie crust. I used my handy donut biscuit cutter to cut my circles.

Using both Pillsbury pie crusts and re-rolling the scraps I was able to cut 16 circles, for 8 hand pies.

Place a happy Tablespoon of pie filling in the middle of half the circles.

Place the remaining pie dough circles on the pie filling and with a fork crimp all around the edges to seal your pies. Cut a small slit in the top for steam to escape while baking.

These are so simple and quick to make. They are a great snack for home or make a huge batch for your next get-together.

Recipe Tips:

  • This recipe uses 1 box of Pillsbury pie crusts and I was able to get 8 pies. Feel free to use homemade crust.
  • I was able to make 8 pies from 2 pie crusts, re-rolling the scraps a couple of times.
  • I used my Apple Pie Filling and Topping for this, I dice my apples. You could totally use canned pie filling, but keep in mind it uses sliced apples so you may want to use a larger cutter for your pie dough.

Apple Hand Pies

Delicious easy to make individual apple pies. A treat for on the go or just for fun at home!

Ingredients
  

Pies

  • 2 pie crusts - homemade or store-bought
  • 8-10 Tablespoons apple pie filling

Glaze

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1½-2 Tablespoons milk or water

Instructions
 

  • Roll out your pie crust and cut into circles - I used my favorite donut cutter and store-bought pie crusts and re-rolling the scraps I was able to get enough cut-outs for 8 hand-pies.
  • Lay half the circles out and place a happy Tablespoon of pie filling on each circle, keeping it as much in the center as possible
  • Now lay the top pie crust over your filling and sealing the edges all the way around - I used a fork to press/crimp the pie dough circles together and cut a small slit in the top for steam to escape
  • Place the pies not touching on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper
  • Bake in a pre-heated 400° oven for 15-18 minutes until top of pies are golden brown and apple filling is bubbly
  • For the glaze simply combine the powdered sugar and choice of liquid {water or milk} until smooth
  • Once pies are cool, or at least cool enough to handle - dip top-down into glaze or spoon the glaze over each pie and set aside for glaze to set up
  • Store pies in an air-tight container if there are any left!
