I was craving for MOS Burger's mini apple pie pockets so I've decided to try making them myself!
These apple pie pockets are so small you can finish them up in 2 bites. It makes eating them easier and i think they make good party food.
Bought a big bag of small apples and I had 4 more left that I did not want to throw away,I know I can't eat anymore apples after eating them everyday for a week.
I used pre-packed shortcrust pastry as i'm lazy and it definitely made it much easier!
After i peel and core the apples, i chopped them up into cubes. Then i coated them with lemon juice so they don't discolour. The lemons were given to me by my lovely colleague who has a lemon tree :)
On a saucepan, melt 3 tablespoons of butter, and evenly spread 3 table spoon of sugar on top. When the sugar is turning brown, throw in the apple and 1 teaspoon (i used 2 ) of cinnamon powder. Let the apple soften and use medium heat so it doesn't burn. After that, just wrap the filling with the premade pastry and I used a fork to make the pattern at the side. I baked it in the over at 160 degree for around 10 minutes.
The apples I used were really small and 4 apples were only enough for 5 apple pie pockets (u can eat these cute pockets up in 2 bites) and 3 mini apple pies. I did not add enough sugar and butter to make the filling "juicier" but I did that on purpose as I need something healthier (better for my winter weight that I've been carrying around), it was still sweet enough.
These apple pies will turn hard when cooled so I heat them up before serving. I love it when the pastry is warm and soft, yummyyyy
