Indian Chai Spice Apple Hand Pies
2 large, firm tart apples
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons of butter, melted
Chai spice mix (2 teaspoons each cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, fennel seed, plus 1 teaspoon of black pepper)
2 rounds of refrigerated pie cough
1 egg beaten with 1 tablespoon cold water
Cinnamon Sugar mix
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Toss apples with brown sugar, butter, salt and spice mixture.
Unroll pie dough, cut each round into six wedges. Lay half of the wedges onto the prepared pans. Place 1/4 cup of the apple mixture on each wedge, top with remaining dough, then press edges together with a fork. Brush egg wash on each pie and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Cut two slits into top of each pie.
Bake at 400° for 20-25 minutes until golden brown and bubbly. Cool 15 minutes before eating.
