Cinnamon Apple Hand Pies

I’m warming up in the kitchen this morning creating a super simple recipe for apple hand pies. Cooking for those I love is one of my most favorite ways of connecting. It’s so nourishing to feed one another. Apple hand pies are a sweet way to share the love.

Cinnamon Apple Hand Pies

Recipe by Leslie Indigo Alison


Prep time








  • 4 Apples

  • 1 cup brown sugar

  • 1/2 cup vegan butter

  • Cinnamon

  • Pie Crusts

  • Note : Use homemade pie crusts if you are up for it – or – make it easy with a store bought organic pie crust. I suggest one keep a few frozen pie crusts in the freezer for quick recipes. If frozen, let thaw 20 minutes before trying to use for recipes.


  • Preparation
  • Preheat oven to 350-400 degrees depending on your oven
  • Rinse and chop apples into small pieces – leaving skin on or peeling off depending on your preference
  • Sprinkle 1/4 cup brown sugar onto the chopped apples and stir together and set aside
  • Melt 1/4 cup butter and add 1 teaspoon of cinnamon – set aside
  • Melt 1/4 cup butter and mix with 1 cup brown sugar in a mixing bowl and set aside
  • Putting the Hand Pies Together
  • Roll out the first pie crust onto a flat surface and cut into 4 equal pieces
  • Spoon cinnamon butter onto each pie crust
  • Scoop a generous lump of apples onto each pie crust
  • Drizzle the brown sugar mixture onto each pile of apples
  • Cover each apple pie with a slice of pie crust and pinch together to close the sides
  • Drizzle a little bit of butter and brown sugar on top of each pie and sprinkle with cinnamon
  • Reserved apples can be spooned alongside the pies to bake for garnish when serving
  • Bake at 350-400 degrees for 20-30 minutes until pie crust is fully baked and golden brown
  • Let cool for 5 minutes
