Cosmic Crisp® Valentine’s Day Hand Pies

Directions:

A thick, juicy Cosmic Crisp® slice sandwiched between store-bought crust and baked with apple butter or your favorite jam is the secret to creating these simple snack treats. Get creative with cookie cut-outs for seasonal, celebratory change-ups like Valentine’s Day hearts. A smattering of sparkling sugar or a layer of pink frosting gives it a winning finish!

  1. Cut a Cosmic Crisp® crosswise into 6 ⅜-inch thick slices. Remove the seeds and cut in half.
  2. Unroll two dairy case pie crusts onto a lightly floured surface
  3. Using a 3- to 5- include heart shaped cookie cutter, cut out dough shapes and place on baking sheet
  4. Add an apple slice to each side of the heart shape
  5. Top each apple slice with apple butter or your favorite jam
  6. Press edges together with fingers or fork to seal
  7. Brush each hand pie with melted butter or egg wash and sprinkle with sugar or flake salt
  8. Bake in a 375°F oven about 25 minutes until golden brown
