    So you know like Apple Pie you get from Mcdonalds?
    Well I have this really really good apple pie that I have down to a T. I will be going to a park this weekend and a pie will just be A LOT to handle, keep up with, store, etc

    The pouches would be PERFECT. They are serving sized, easy to store, etc



    Can I take this apple pie recipe that I have make these out of it or do I have to have a special piecrust, wat to cut up the apples, etc

    I THINK that most people fry pies like that. Maybe you could google a fried pie recipe.

    I don t like fried pies so if it were me I would make my mixture up and use a ready made crust for the "pocket" then bake until browned. It may be a trial and error thing you have to do until you get it right.

    I bake my fried pies in the oven to avoid the extra grease..sometimes I spray them lightly and dust with sugar before baking...and I do use my regular pie crust recipe.

    You didn't say if your apple filling was cooked before baking in the pastry or not. Whole apple pies bake long enough to cook the filling through, but small hand-held pies might end up with crunchy apples and cooked pastry. Fried apple pies are filled with cooked pie filling before deep frying, so you may want to cook the apple filling, cool it, then put on pastry rectangles, fold over to encase the filling and crimp the edges well before baking. I think an egg wash (beaten whole egg blended with a couple TB of water) and a sprinkle of granulated sugar would give a nice, sweet crunch to the pie crust. And you may want to make 2-3 slits in the top of the pastry before baking to let steam escape.

    This dough is more like a biscuit dough than a pie dough but it holds up way better and it much easier to work with. It tastes really good too.

    Pocket Pies by Alton Brown

    Pastry:
    · 9 1/2 ounces all-purpose flour, approximately 2 cups
    · 2 teaspoons baking powder
    · 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
    · 2 1/2 ounces shortening, approximately 6 tablespoons
    · 3/4 cup milk
    · 1 egg mixed with 1 to 2 teaspoons water


    Directions:
    In the bowl of a food processor, combine the flour, baking powder and salt. Pulse for a few seconds and then pour into a large mixing bowl.

    Add the shortening and knead it into the flour with your hands until it is crumbly. Add the milk all at once and mix in with a spatula until it begins to come together. Lightly flour your hands and the countertop and turn the dough out onto the countertop.

    Knead the dough ball, folding over 10 to 20 times. Using a rolling pin roll the dough to 1/3 to 1/2-inch thickness, then cut into rounds using a 2 1/4-inch ring. Roll each round as thinly as possible or to 5 to 6 inches in diameter.

    Spoon 1 to 2 tablespoons of filling onto the dough, brush the edges of half of the dough lightly with the egg wash, fold over and seal the edges together with the tines of a fork, dipping it into flour as needed. Gently press down to flatten and evenly distribute the filling and snip or cut 3 slits in the top of the pie. Dock pies that are going to be deep-fried, instead of snipping or cutting slits.

    My A/C is out in the house and it is hotter than the devils pitch fork in here

    Alton Brown's Pocket Pie dough will not be as affected by the heat as much as regular pie dough because there is not as much fat in it. You can make them in a hot kitchen.
