Wilton Apple Pocket Pie Press

See that cute little gadget?  Miss V convinced me to get it at Walmart.

There is no recipe in the box so I had to make one up as I went and didn't really measure anything.  I sliced up a couple Granny Smith Apples and put them in a sauce pan with granulated sugar, a dash of lemon juice, a tablespoon of butter, dash of salt, cinnamon and fresh nutmeg.  I cooked it until the apples were softened.

I opened and unrolled the pie dough.  This is the first time I have been disappointed with store bought dough from Publix.

 After cutting out only 8 pieces of dough, I quickly realized that the bottom doesn't fit so you need to stretch it a bit.
Then add a couple tablespoons of filling.  Egg wash the edges of the bottom dough.

 Then add the top layer.

 Crimp and press the dough together.  It was a PAIN to get the pies out of the press.  When done, poke a couple of holes into the dough and egg wash them.  I did sprinkle on some cinnamon/sugar mixture.

 Look at all this extra WASTED dough...

 Bake at 400 for 18-20 minutes.

They came out cute, but are a total waste of time and dough.

They are really adorable, but man what a pain!! I usually shy away from individual sized things, it's way more work, more dishes, more waste & really, I could just make a big old family size & be done with it :) Thanks for buying & trying this gadget. I know I've been tempted by it at Walmart too :)

Now see, I was going to say "I want that!" but after hearing how much work they are, I'm kinda lazy. But I think it's totally cute.
