Instructions Checklist
  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add sausage; cook, breaking meat apart with a wooden spoon, until browned, about 5 minutes. Add apple; cook and stir until starting to soften, 2 to 3 minutes. Season with salt. Let filling stand until cooled, at least 15 minutes.

  • Beat egg and egg yolk together in a small bowl to make egg wash.

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

  • Unroll pastries onto a lightly floured work surface. Spread and gently press 1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese and 1/2 teaspoon thyme over each pastry.

  • Slice each pastry crosswise into 4 wedges. Add a generous 1/4 cup filling to each wedge. Brush edges with egg wash. Fold dough over the filling and seal the pies. Crimp edges with a fork and trim any excess dough. Arrange pies on the prepared baking sheets. Brush with any remaining egg wash; sprinkle the remaining 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese and 1 teaspoon thyme over pies. Season with pepper.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, rotating pans halfway through, 12 to 15 minutes. Let cool before serving, about 10 minutes.

Cook's Note:

Refrigerate filling to expedite cooling process.

I would add extra apple for a better sweet and savory balance. My husband suggested trying puff pastry next time. Read More

Made as directed. Video made it super easy to understand how to fold these. I'll be keeping the ingredients on hand. I'd like to know what dipping sauce or gravy was used in the video but these are delicious as is. The only thing I added was a BIG GLASS OF COLD MILK. Yum! Great dinner. Thx. Top with Hatch Chili Jalapeño Jam! oh WOW Read More
