One of my favorite ways to celebrate the holidays is with food. I especially love Halloween because you can eat, drink, and be scary! There are so many fun ways to turn favorite traditional fall foods into Halloween fun treats. And it is the perfect holiday to let the kids in on the fun. Especially since perfection is not required for things like spiders, monsters, and mummies.
I am obsessed with Halloween foods. And this apple hand pie is no exception. It is cut round, filled, topped, and layered with extra crust to make it look like a mummy, then egg washed, baked, and dusted with Dixie Crystals Powdered Sugar. It is absolutely tasty, with the perfect sweet and tart filling made from fall apples. Your whole family will love the flavors, and the fun Halloween twist. And your whole family can get in on the fun of making them too.
Isn’t making Halloween treats the perfect way to spend time with your family? For this dessert I used both Dixie Crystals sugar and powdered sugar. Dixie Crystals is a trusted Southern brand that has been around since 1917. And one of their goals is for families to spend time together in the kitchen making memories through food. Holidays are the perfect platform for it! So I was happy to take that goal and run with it.
My kids had so much fun customizing their own mummies, and of course sprinkling them with powdered sugar when they were hot out of the oven. In some cases much more than the apple
hand pie got a sprinkling. But that is all part of the fun.
I used an apple peeler corer tool to make the whole process of making the filling super fast.
My kids love twisting the handle for me! And I love that all I have to do is a few rough chops after peeling and coring and I have ready to go apples. A sprinkle of lemon to keep them white, and a toss in our cinnamon, Dixie Crystals sugar, and other pie spices mixture, a few dabs of butter, and you are in business. As eazy peazy as can be.
Pre-made Pie Crust
I used a pre-made pie crust, and cut out circles, make them as big as you want your apple hand pie to be. I went with 3 inch diameters.
Top with filling. You are getting closer to having these apple hand pies in your hands!
Then add the top crust. Seal it up tight with a dab of water so it doesn’t leak too bad.
Then take strips of pie crust that is leftover, and layer it to look like a mummy. I used candied pecans to make the eyeballs.
Then give it an egg wash, and bake!
Then enjoy! I hope you love them as much as we do.
