Why I Love This Recipe

I like apple and pies


Ingredients You'll Need

1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
FILLING:
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground allspice
2 cups finely chopped peeled tart apples
2 tablespoons cold unsalted butter
FINISHING:
1 large egg yolk
2 tablespoons water
Coarse sugar and cinnamon-sugar


Directions

In a large bowl, beat cream cheese and butter until smooth. Combine flour and salt; gradually add to butter mixture until well blended. Divide dough in half. Shape each into a ball, then flatten into a disk. Wrap in plastic and refrigerate for 1 hour.


Combine the sugar, cinnamon and allspice; set aside. Divide each portion of dough into 12 balls. On a lightly floured surface, roll each ball into a 4-in. circle. Place a tablespoonful of chopped apples on one side. Sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon sugar mixture; dot with 1/4 teaspoon butter.


In a small bowl, whisk egg yolk and water. Brush edges of pastry with egg wash; fold pastry over filling and seal edges well with a fork. Place 2 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Brush remaining egg wash over tops. Cut slits in pastry. Sprinkle with coarse sugar and cinnamon-sugar.


Bake at 425° for 11-14 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to wire racks to cool.
