Apple & Berry Hand Pies

Begin by cutting the apples into slices and then into small chunks.

Apple & Berry Hand Pies

Melt the butter in a medium to large KitchenAid® Tri-Ply Copper Skillet over medium heat. Cook the butter until it turns a golden color with bits of brown and smells deliciously toasty. Turn the heat down to medium low. Stir in the apples, white sugar, brown sugar, and salt. Cook for about five minutes or until the apples are soft. Stir in the cinnamon, and cook the apples one to two more minutes until mixture has thickened. Remove the skillet from the burner and allow the mixture to cool slightly.

Place the star shapes onto a baking dish covered with parchment paper. Make sure the parchment paper won’t touch the oven anywhere while inside or it could burn. Spoon out the pie filling onto the stars.

Place another star shape on top. Press the edges of the stars together. Whisk the egg and milk together. Brush the egg mixture onto the tops of each star. Sprinkle the stars with white sugar. Cut an “x” in the top of each star for ventilation.
