Pretty, tasty and portable, these apple pie pockets are sure to be a hit at any barbeque!
Step 1: The Crust
First things first… decide whether you want to make your apple pie pockets the homemade way or the faster, more convenient way. If you’re pressed for time, purchase ready made refrigerated pie crust from the grocery store. If you’re feeling more adventurous, you can make your pie crust from scratch. I highly recommend Smitten Kitchen’s All Butter, Really Flaky Pie Dough. Not only is her recipe amazing but she has a great step-by-step tutorial with tons of tips on how to make a buttery, flaky pie crust.
Step 2: The Filling
After you’ve decided on the pie crust you are going to use, the next obvious decision is what filling you are going to use. For my apple pie pockets, I used a delicious Caramel Apple recipe from The Purple Foodie. The apples were amazing but I ended up with a little bit more liquid than I wanted in my pockets. No big deal… I just poured some of it out and it worked out perfect.
As you prepare your apple pie filling, keep in mind you are making apple pie pockets so you will need to cut your apples into small pieces instead of quarters.
