Celebrate fall with this month's bake -- comforting hand pies filled with delicious cinnamon apple pie filling.
A classic dessert, these hand pies are like fun-sized apple pies, great grab-n-go snacks perfect for quelling the afternoon munchies.
This recipe includes the perfect pie crust recipe - delicate, tender and flaky, yet firm enough to hold the filling.
Making and rolling out pie crust might seem pretty daunting, but fret not, simply follow the recipe card guidelines closely and you'll find it a breeze to make!
One important tip to remember would be to ensure that you keep the butter for this recipe in the fridge until prior to using it! This is to prevent the butter from getting too soft and melting as you mix and roll out the pie dough, which will result in a tougher crust. If you find that your dough is too sticky to handle, simply wrap it in cling wrap and stick it in the refrigerator for 10-15 mins to firm up.
Don't forget to get your family and friends to pitch in! After rolling out the pie crust, you can freestyle and cut them into whatever shapes you desire. Cut triangles, fill them, and seal them tight before baking to get triangular-shaped hand pies.
This recipe gives you about 10-15 hand pies, and the pie crust recipe can be reused in future to wrap fillings of any kind you like! Stuff the pies with blueberry jam, nutella, chocolate chips, or anything really.

Store leftover hand pies in an airtight container at room temperature (< 3 days) or in the fridge. Enjoy these babies cold, at room temperature or warm from the oven with ice cream, it's up to you!
