Apple Hand Pies

Caroline is becoming quite the little baker, at 5 years old!

It's Sunday afternoon... the kids are restless and bored.  That's my cue to dig through the fridge and pantry to see what we can whip up together.  Today, it was apple turnovers, or hand pies as I like to call them.  We had everything we needed to make these already on hand...

Caroline made the entire recipe all by herself, no help from Mom, except with the oven and knife of course.

 You start with the biscuits.  Take them apart and set them on a baking sheet that's been sprayed with a non-stick spray (Pam).  Flatten out the biscuits with your hand.

Quarter your apples, then slice them into thin pieces.  You should only need one apple to make 8 hand pies.

Put two or three thin slices of apples on each biscuit.  Add a 1/2 teaspoon butter, and sprinkle liberally with a mixture of cinnamon and sugar.  Fold the biscuit over onto itself.

Take a fork and crimp the edges closed.

Caroline was so cute... she said the crimping looked like eyelashes on the pies!  *HA HA HA*  That's my girl!

Sprinkle crimped pies with cinnamon and sugar mixture, and bake for 20 minutes at 350 degrees.

Caroline couldn't wait to hand these out to the neighbors!  Unfortunately, all the hand pies were devoured before she could make the rounds.  Daddy and Jake got to them first!

Apparently, the recipe was a success!
