These Pizza Dough Apple Hand Pies are made from yeast free pizza dough. I follow this recipe with slight changes. Omitted dry milk and use evaporated milk instead.
The crust is less buttery since we are using 5 tablespoon of melted butter/oil when compared with regular pie crust. This suits for those looking for lightened up pie crust that was flavorful, easy to handle and bake beautifully.
Cut the apple into a half inch cubes then coat with the rest of the ingredients for the filling. You will get some liquid after some time, only scoop the apple but leave behind the liquid when stuffing the hand pies.
Any variety of apple such as red delicious, gala or macintosh can be used instead of granny smith. Another tip is to bake these Pizza Dough Apple Hand Pies on the lowest rack of the oven for 10 minutes, This trick ensures a nicely cooked, never soggy bottom.
