These little hand pies look so adorable in the picture in Dorie Greenspan's Baking Chez Moi. And it is a perfect time to bake them because apples are readily available in a great many varieties. As part of my participation with the Tuesdays with Dorie bakers, my goal is to bake and post every other Tuesday. I did bake them on Tuesday (yesterday), but here it is already Wednesday and I am only now beginning to write about it.
Let me say that there are only 3 pie-lets left of the dozen. And we didn't even eat them for dessert at dinner--it's just that every time someone passed by the kitchen, it was impossible not to grab a pie-let.
The dough was easy, although a little fussy to cut out since I was using make-shift cutters. I left out the raisins because I wanted to leave them out. I used two different apples: Northern Spy, my absolute apple pie apple, and Cortland. I'm sure to make these again!
