A few weeks ago we packed up some lunch, a few friends and the dog in the car and headed to climb a mountain. OK, a really big hill, but if felt like a mountain that day. For real guys, it was hard! However, there is nothing more motivating to keep going than a group of friends walking along your side. And knowing that once you have completed the trek, there will be pie!
I had wanted to make some apple hand pies for a couple of months after seeing a recipe that looked really easy to make on cupcakes and cashmere. I finally took the time to get out the apple peeler to try it out. Here is the recipe I tried. Note: I totally cheated and bought pie curst from the store. I used 1/2 a pie curst per hand pie. These made for some really large hand pies. Next time I would make them smaller and use 1/4 a pie curst per hand pie. I also added a little nut meg to the recipe upon recommendation from cupcakes and cashmere’s notes.
Extra filling? No problem! We put our extras in a jar and had it on top of ice cream!
A stop on the way up that steep hill!
