- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1/4 cup powdered sugar
- 1 tablespoon milk
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- In a mixing bowl, combine the diced apples, granulated sugar, ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, and lemon juice. Toss until the apples are well coated in the sugar and spices.
- Roll out the pie crusts and use a round cookie cutter to cut out circles.
- Place a spoonful of the apple mixture onto the center of each circle.
- Brush the edges of the circles with beaten egg, then fold them in half, sealing the edges to form half-moon shapes.
- Place the pie bites on the prepared baking sheet and brush the tops with more beaten egg.
- Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the pie bites are golden brown and bubbling.
- While the pie bites are baking, make the glaze by mixing powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla extract in a small bowl.
