Apple, Raspberry and Pecan Hand Pies

In my quest to "use stuff up" I had another idea today, I had one pie crust left (the round kind), one apple, some Raspberries, and a brand new bag of Pecans.

I got to use my new "Turbinado Sugar" too, I am so glad I finally got some, it adds a gorgeous look to baked goods. I simply added the pie filling and folded it over, crimped the edges and was good to go. I turned out a bit tart and very delicious!

1 Granny Smith Apple, peeled, cored and diced
1/2 a pint of Raspberries rinsed and picked over
1/3 cup of Pecans, chopped
1 flat round pie crust
1 egg beaten
1/2 tbl cinnamon
1/2 tbl ground ginger
Turbinado sugar
2-3 tsp regular sugar

Mix the fruit, pecans, spices and regular sugar, let sit for a few minutes to meld the flavors

Place in the middle of your pie crust and fold over, crimping the edges

Brush with the beaten egg and sprinkle on the Turbinado sugar

Bake at 350 for about 40-45 minutes, serve with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream

these are pretty much the perfect dessert—the only problem i have with them is that if i choose to eat them with my hands, how do i make them a la mode? all fruit pie must be a la mode. :)

Cheryl, these are so cute and anything you can eat with your hands works for me.
