Ingredients
  

  • 1 cup gala apple
  • 1 tbsp vegan butter plus ½ tsp more for coating
  • 1 tbsp sugar in the raw
  • 2 tsp maple syrup
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp all spice
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ tbsp pecans
  • 1 Vegan pie crust

Instructions
 

  • Preheat your oven to 450 degrees.
  • Peel, cork and cut your appleI(s). Cut them into very small pieces, as they need to be small to fit inside the pie.
  • Add 1 tbsp of butter into a medium skillet over medium heat.
  • Once melted, add in the apple chunks. Sauté the apples for approx. 4-5 minutes, until they are semi-softened.
  • Add in your maple syrup, vanilla, sugar and pecans. Sauté for another 4-5 minutes.
  • Remove the skillet from the heat then add in the additional ingredients the spices and mix together in the skillet.
  • Sprinkle flour on a clean surface then lay our thawed, store bought vegan pie crust on top of it.
  • Using a cookie cutter or the top of a cup, cut 8 circles from the pie crust (these will be your pie shells).
  • Scoop the pie filling evenly into four of the mini pie shells. It will be about 1 ½ tbsps.
  • Brush melted vegan butter on the edges of the shell with the pie filling, then place another shell on top, to fully encase the filling.
  • Use a fork to mesh together the two crusts so they are sealed. Option to cut off any excess crust, but do not cut too much.
  • Slit a small slice on top of each pie to allow heat to escape. Coat with butter.
  • Bake at 450 degrees F for 15 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes. Top with vegan ice cream or whip cream. Enjoy!

Notes

Place hand pies in an airtight container and store them in a cool place for up to 4 days.
The best way to reheat these vegan apple hand pies is to do so gently and slowly in a microwave. Wrap the hand pie in a moist paper towel and heat for 30 seconds on medium heat. Continue until heated to your desired temperature.
The following store-bought pie crusts are vegan: Wholly Wholesome; Marie Callender’s; Keebler’s no-bake graham cracker crusts. You can also make your own.
Be sure to thaw pie crust for 12 hours prior to using.
