Ingredients

For the crust

  • 8 Ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1 Cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 Cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 Teaspoon salt

For the filling

  • 1/4 Cup sugar
  • 1/4 Teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 Teaspoon ground allspice
  • 2 Cups tart apples, peeled and finely chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons cold unsalted butter

For the finishing

  • 1 egg yolk
  • 2 Tablespoons water
  • Coarse sugar and cinnamon-sugar

Directions

For the crust

In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese and butter until smooth. Combine the 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 wrap and refrgerate for 1 hour. 

For the filling

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-inch circle. Place a mixture; dot with 1/4 teaspoon butter. 

For the finishing

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 inches 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 degrees for 11-14 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to wire racks to cool. 

Apple Pie Shopping Tip

Be sure to purchase the correct flour a recipe calls for – flours differ in gluten or protein content, making each suited for specific tasks.

Apple Pie Cooking Tip

Insert a toothpick into the center of cakes, bar cookies, and quick breads to test for doneness – it should come out clean or only have a few crumbs clinging to it.
