Apple Pockets

Another recipe from Parents, I made these with the kids tonight-they turned out scrumptious!

Prep: 20 minutes, plus baking
Yield: 10 pies

2 Golden Delicious Apples
2 Tbs Sugar
1 tsp Cinnamon
Flour for dusting rolling surface
1 pkg refrigerated biscuits

Heat oven to 350. Peel apples & grate into a medium bowl. In a small bowl, combine sugar & cinnamon. Stir half of cinnamon sugar into grated apples. Roll each biscuit to about a 5" circle. Spoon apple mixture onto circles. Fold circles over and pinch edges to make half-moons. Place on a baking sheet. Brush pies with water and sprinkle with remaining cinnamon sugar. Bake 20 minutes.

Tips & Tricks:
I had crescent roll dough instead of biscuit dough and it worked well. I used granny smith apples, and used squares to make triangle pies instead of circles for half-moons.

How Kids Can Help:
Kids can fill pies, fold over & pinch edges. Older kids can help roll out dough.

Thanks for your YW camp beauty horror story; you were probably adorable!

These look so good and seem pretty easy, we will have to try these, thanks! Do you have a recipe for a simple drizzle-on powdered sugar frosting that could go on top as well?

I didn't glaze them, but I just sprayed them with Pam and then sprinkled sugar on top before baking. However, when in doubt mix cream cheese with powdered sugar & use that as a glaze... :D Since everyone has different preferences for cream cheese, use about 1/2 pkg of cream cheese and add sugar to taste. A little milk will thin it if you want a runnier icing.

We made these but instead of making packages we just put filling in the middle and pushed the edges up like a little wall to hold it all in the middle. So, they were open faced pies but SO yummy. Thanks for the idea.

We made these this afternoon and the kids had so much fun helping me with the preparation! They gobbled them down in no time flat.

I mentioned this to my Activity Days girls today, and we are planning to make them next time we get together! Thanks Jen for a really fun, easy recipe!

Instead of grating the apples, I peeled and cored them, then chopped them finely with my Pampered Chef chopper. It worked great! I also already had premixed cinnamon sugar by McCormick, so I used that.
