  • 1 large apple peeled and finely diced
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • teaspoon salt
  • 2 rolls pie dough
  • 1 large egg lightly beaten
  • green or black food coloring


  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Roll out the pie dough and each roll cut into 6 rounds with a large cookie cutter.
  • Toss the apples, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt together in a medium bowl.
  • Add 1-2 tablespoons of the apple mixture into the center of half of the cut out pieces of pie dough. Place the remaining pieces of dough on top and use a fork to crimp the edges closed. Poke a few holes in the top of each.
  • Brush over each with the lightly beaten egg.
  • Bake for 15-18 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Remove from the oven and let cool.
  • Use food coloring to draw skulls, crossbones or other indicators of "poison" on top of the hand pies. Optionally, sprinkle sugar on top of the food coloring.
