How to Make Hand-Held Apple Pies

Step-by-Step

  1. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese and butter until smooth. Combine flour and salt; gradually add to butter mixture until well blended.
    Divide dough in half.
    Shape each into a ball, then flatten into a disk.
    Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour.
    Combine the sugar, cinnamon and allspice; set aside. Divide each portion of dough into 12 balls
  2. On a lightly floured surface, roll each ball into a 4-in. circle. Place a tablespoonful of chopped apples on one side. Sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon sugar mixture; dot with 1/4 teaspoon butter.
    In a small bowl, whisk egg yolk and water.
    Brush edges of pastry with egg wash; fold pastry over filling and seal edges well with a fork.
  3. Place 2 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets.
    Brush remaining egg wash over tops. Cut slits in pastry. Sprinkle with coarse sugar and cinnamon-sugar.
    Bake at 425° for 11-14 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to wire racks to cool.
  4. To Make Ahead: Pastry can be prepared and rolled out a day in advance. Stack pastry rounds between floured sheets of waxed paper
