whole wheat apple hand pies ~vegan~
Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: Vegan
Serves: 4
Makes 4 hand pies!
  • For the pie filling:
  • 4 apples, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • ¼ cup organic cane sugar
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 1½ tablespoons flour
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • For the dough:
  • 2¼ cups whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon organic cane sugar
  • ½ cup coconut oil in solid form (Best to first measure out coconut oil and place in the refrigerator to harden)
  • ⅓-1/2 cup ice water
  • Extra coconut oil (melted) and cane sugar for topping is needed!
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees, line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Add sliced apples to a large bowl and drizzle with lemon juice, toss to coat. Add cane sugar, brown sugar, flour, water and cinnamon. Mix until well combined and set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, mix together whole wheat pastry flour, salt and sugar. Cut in coconut oil until crumbly, using hands as needed. Add ⅓ cup of ice water and mix together. Use hands to knead dough and form into a ball. Add more water as needed to hold dough together. Divide into two balls. On a floured surface or on wax paper, roll out dough until ⅛ to ¼ inch thick. Use a small plate (I used a 4½ inch plate) or cookie cutter to cut rounds, 8 total. Evenly place 4 rounds on baking sheets lined with parchment paper and use a fork or toothpick to poke holes in dough. Add ¼ cup pie filling, top with another dough round and use a fork to press down edges, sealing off pies. Poke top of pie, brush on melted coconut oil and add a pinch of cane sugar. Place in oven and cook for 25-30 minutes or until golden and crispy around the edges. (Keep an eye on the oven so they don't burn!)
  4. Let cool and enjoy!
