Apple handpies

Posted in Breakfast, Comfort Foods, Fruit, Sweet, Uncategorized on Jan 28, 2010

Yesterday, I posted the first part of this whole filo dough extravaganza.  Basically, what happened is that I had used only 1/2 a box of filo, and I didn’t want to put it away, so I decided to make some apple pies for treats.  Here’s what I started with:

  • 2 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • about 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • about 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • three small fuji apples
  • a splash of vanilla extract
  • 1/2 box of raisins (the kid’s snack size box – left over from our Cuban Ground Beef and Plantain meal)


Basically, I just peeled the apples and chopped them up, and then stirred in the other ingredients.  I’m sure there is a right way to do it, but it was already 8 pm, and I was wanting to get it into the oven so it could get in my belleh.


I followed the same brush on the butter, fold the dough method as with the Spinach Handpies, but just before baking, I sprinkled them with sugar and then popped them in the oven.


These were delicious! Not too sweet, and everyone but The Boy enjoyed them. Because, duh, it’s pie. The Boy flat out refused to try it once he spotted the raisins in the filling. And you know, I didn’t push it because I might have put raisins in on purpose. So there would be more pie for me. Maybe. I mean, the thought never crossed my mind – but had I thought of it, I might have.

5 to “Apple handpies”

  1. Kids are hysterical – it is amazing when they are downright defiant about tasting something. We try to get a “no, thank you” bite out of most foods, but I find that if we push it, it creates pressure and other issues. At least my kids are learning not to complain about the food – we tell them not to “yuck our yum.”

    Oh. My. These look insanely delicious. I’ve yet to try the filo dough stuff, but it’s on my list. What isn’t on my list? Anyway, these look great.

  3. Did you leave any for him to maybe venture a try the following day? I found that sometimes, if I say that I really like it, my older kid will say “I don’t” after one bite (yes, we have this rule that you can not say “no” without even trying it)… and then the following day, she tries it on her own and likes it…

    I did leave some for him to try (shockingly, because I could have inhaled the whole batch) but all he did was pick off the filo crust and leave me a little naked pile of apples and raisins.
