8 thoughts on “Maine-ish Fried Apple Hand Pies and a Baked Variation

    1. These “apple hand pies” are very tasty, and I was especially pleased that my husband thought they tasted just like the ones he knew when he lived in New Orleans. Some things are the same across this country!

  1. I love that you did a baked version of the apple hand pies! Time willing, I’m going to give them a try at Thanksgiving, but with addition of cranberries. Your nature photos are stunning, and now I want to plan a trip to Maine. 🙂

    1. Thanks for visiting my blog and for your comment. Yes, cranberries would be a great addition to this recipe, especially at Thanksgiving. Actually, dried cranberries might work better that fresh ones, hum, would have to try it out. Yes, as much as I loved the “Fried Hand Pies,” I’m trying to keep away from so much fried foods. Lightly brushing the pies with evaporated milk gave a nice, browned appearance and the “Sugar in the Raw” gave a sparkle. And, I love photography so I was in my “element” during our visit. Incidentally, it snowed the week after we came to Boston, so there went the fall colors!
