heart shaped apple pie

iced and bite sized

Ingredients

  • Pastry Dough (I made mine from scratch but
    you can buy premade, i’ll share my recipe soon!)
  • 4 cups diced apples
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tbs apple pie spice
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 tbs butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Instructions

  1. Preheat over to 425 and like 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl add the diced apples and toss with the flour then stir in the sugar and apple pie spice.  Set aside.
  3. On a floured cutting board, roll out the pre-made dough until it is about 1/8″ thick.
  4. Using a cookie cutter, I used a heart shape one, cut out 16 hearts.  Reuse dough and roll out again as needed.
  5. Brush butter onto 8 of your hearts and place 2 tablespoons of the apple mixture on the center of the hearts.
  6. Place the remaining dough on top.  Pinch to seal then press a fork around the entire edge.
  7. Make an egg wash by slightly beating one egg with 1 tbsp of water.  Brush tops of the hearts then cut 2 slits onto the dough.
  8. Place on your cookie sheet and bake for 20/25 minutes or until golder brown and the apples are tender.  Make the icing.

For the icing

  1. In a bowl whisk 1 cup of powdered sugar with 1 tsp of vanilla and 1/4 cup of milk.
  2. Add in 1 tbsp of milk as your whisking to get the desired texture you want.  (I use about half a cup of milk.)
  3. When your apple pies are done, pull them out of the oven and immediately poor your icing over the hot pies.
  4. Let cool, then serve.
