We have an abundance of apples at the moment and with butterscotch still on my to do list this winter, I decided to make apple hand pies with the ridiculously easy butterscotch sauce as featured on Smitten Kitten. It really was easy.
My apple handpies are easy too: Preheat oven to 180°C. Take 1 sheet of frozen puff pastry, thaw and cut in half into 2 rectangles. Peel 1 apple (reserving peel for a lucky bunny) and slice apple into even pieces and arrange on 1 half of each piece of pastry. Sprinkle with half a teaspoon of sugar and a pinch of cinnamon. Fold rectangles over in half and crimp edges with a fork. Poke 2 sets of fork holes in the top of the pies to allow steam out. Brush with milk and bake for 30 minutes until golden brown. Remove from oven, cut diagonally into triangles, arrange on a plate and drizzle with butterscotch sauce.
