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.

I still have to make croissants according to my list. Who wrote that???
These look great, G. I think I’ll make some. I’ve only ever done savory triangles, but apple makes sense.
Looks like Tofu approved of your ingredients too.
Tofu goes bananas for apples 🙂
Croissants. That sounds super hard. I dream of living in France and breakfasting on fresh croissants and cafe au lait.
That bunny of your’s is so adorable; Dustie used to rub her chin on things too. Apparently it is not good to let them eat the core, not sure why not because they would eat far worse things in the wild. Have you given Tofu bananas? All of our bunnies loved bananas.
The apple pie looks delightful; I made a caramel sauce in the microwave that was very easy too http://traceysculinaryadventures.blogspot.ca/2011/10/easiest-homemade-caramel-sauce.html
Hi Eva! Tofu isn’t so keen on bananas. It must be the squishy texture. I usually only give Tofu the apple peel. Just a tiny bit of fruit if I’m eating the apple and feel like sharing. He never gets the core…neither do we.
Who would have thought there was anything sweeter than Tofu?! Yum to your butterscotch. They look like beautiful puffed little toasties 🙂
I love the photos! Looks absolutely delicious!
Thanks BaconBiscuit, Tofu thought so too.
I just saw this amazing bunny chair and thought to pass it along!!!
Love it 🙂
Yum! That looks amazing, and I love the idea of butterscotch with apples.
Thanks Lauren, it goes well. I’ve also found that butterscotch goes very well with banana.
Genie, thanks for your saucy contributions. Cheers
You’re welcome Carole. Thanks for having a saucy party 🙂
Those pies are adorable, as is the butterscotch sauce.
