Apple Pie Pop Tarts

Products Used



    1. If making homemade pie crust, prepare Pure Butter Pie Crust. Set aside.
    2. In a large saucepan, add apples, butter, cornstarch, granulated sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt. Stir to combine and then slowly stir in water.
    3. Bring to a low boil and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender. About 15 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
    4. Preheat oven to 400°F. Line two large cookie sheets with parchment paper. Set aside. In a small bowl, whisk together egg and water. Set aside.
    5. Roll out pie crust to 1/8-inch thick. Using a pizza cutter or a sharp kinfe, cut 3-inch by 4-inch rectangles. Reroll pie dough and cut as many rectangles as you can, ending up with 24 pie dough rectangles.
    6. Place 6 pastry rectangles on each cookie sheet. Spoon 1 tablespoon of filling onto each pastry rectangle, leaving 1/2-inch border around edges.
    7.  Wet your finger with a little water and run it around the bare edges of dough. Add a top layer of pie dough and press edges with a fork to seal them.
    8. Bake for 12 to 14 minutes, until golden brown. Remove from oven and transfer to a wire rack to cool. Let cool for 10 minutes.
    9. In a small bowl, whisk together powdered sugar, milk, cinnamon, and vanilla extract. Drizzle on top of cooled pop tarts. Let rest for 5 minutes and serve.
