Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

    Advertisement
  • In a bowl, toss apple slices together with sugar, flour, salt, apple pie spice, and vanilla extract until evenly coated.

  • Lay pie dough flat on a lightly greased baking sheet. Pile apples on one side of dough, leaving a 1 inch border. Brush border and opposite half side of dough with milk. Fold dough over apples, being careful not to over-stuff or the dough will tear. Fold over edges and pinch together to seal. Cut several small slits in the top of the pocket with a sharp knife, then brush top with beaten egg.

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 40 minutes, or until flakey and golden brown. Serve warm, or at room temperature.

I used a box of Pillsbury pie crust. Cutting each pie crust into quarters I was able to make 8 pockets. I used an apple peeler corer slicer to prepare the apples. I did however find I needed to cut them into smaller pieces as I was making smaller pockets. I used cinnamon nutmeg and allspice as my "apple pie spice". Do not skip brushing with the egg mixture as that gave them a terrific shine. When I tasted the finished product my first thought "not enough apple filling." (You couldn't fit more if you wanted to). My second thought "this needs vanilla ice cream". My 3rd thought "Oh my this is fantastic!" Read More

My husband and I agree this really needed more sugar and wasn't really as gooie as we like apple pie to be but that is on a personal level. It turned out beautifully nice shape and the aroma was incredible the apple filling was good just not quite sweet enough for our tastes. Will probly try again and just alter a little. Thanks for the recipe. Read More

Loved it! Loved it! Loved it! I really didn't get a slice but the boys did and they said it was great! I called it hybrid because I used part or Melissas Fried apple Pie recipe too by using 4 apples and simmered them with spices and some water to help along. Used cornstarch to help thicken some. Is a keeper for sure. Read More

This was very good it turned out exactly as they were supposed to. I changed it around a bit though. I made my own pie crust and made the pockets themselves smaller. I'm planning to use them in lunches. Very good! Read More

Excellent for the little effort but I think I'll need to play around with the pastry and spices to get the texture and flavour to my liking but I can see how this could be great. I am in NZ so we don't have pre-mixed apple pie spice or the same kind of bought pie pastry (not as good) I used a mixture of cinnamon nutmeg cloves and allspice. Read More

I thought this was very good. I cooked the apples beforehand to make sure they were soft and it ended up being kind of messy when trying to fold into a pocket but the finished product was delicious. Read More

This was a pretty good recipe. I didn't have any apple pie spice on hand so I just mixed a little brown sugar cinnamon and nutmeg in. Used my own crust and added a little water to the egg. I also topped with cinnamon and sugar. It's a cute idea and packed well for my husband to take to work. Could use a little lemon juice with the apple mixture. I may stick with apple pie filling recipe I usually use. Oh I also used rice milk in place of reg milk as my son and I can't have dairy. Read More
