Semi Homemade Apple Hand Pies with Grandma Hoerner’s

My husband absolutely loves apple pie. At Thanksgiving he was very upset that we hadn’t planned to have apple pie. Don’t worry… I made sure there was apple pie!

With that being said, it’s quite hard to bake and make delicious goodies while I’m following Nutrisystem. I find it hard to stop myself from eating what I make and have taken a bit of time off from baking.

But my family still wants yummy, delicious goodies! So when I was asked to try out Grandma Hoerner’s pie filling and sent a few samples I knew I found the answer… semi-homemade apple hand pies for individual servings!

Apple Hand Pies

I don’t know why I hadn’t thought to make these earlier! Probably because I would have thought about making the filling and dough from scratch. Well with pre-made dough from the grocery store and Grandma Hoerner’s I was set!

It took all of 30 minutes to make these delicious pastries and 25 of those minutes were spent in the oven. And OMG… the filling was absolutely amazing! I may or may not have stirred it into my oatmeal to enjoy the deliciousness. I can’t wait to try some peach in my oatmeal.

Back to these delicious pies. Simple, easy, and takes no time at all! Here’s how I made these yummy treats:
