Cosmic Crisp® Valentine’s Day Hand Pies

Directions:

A thick, juicy Cosmic Crisp® slice sandwiched between store-bought crust and slathered with grape 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 give a winning finish! For an added special touch, add a thin slice of aged cheddar.

 

Cut a Cosmic Crisp® crosswise into 6 ⅜-inch thick slices. Remove the seeds and cut in half.

 

Unroll two dairy case pie crusts onto a lightly floured surface

 

Using a 3- to 5- include heart shaped cookie cutter, cut out dough shapes and place on baking sheet

 

Add an apple slice to each side of the heart shape

 

Slather each apple slice with grape or other favorite jam

 

Press edges together with fingers or fork to seal

 

Brush each hand pie with melted butter or egg wash and sprinkle with sugar or flake salt

 

Bake in a 375°F oven about 25 minutes until golden brown
