Makes six hand pies
These came out light, flaky, and delicious, with just the right filling consistency (not too oozy, but not too dry). The crust recipe makes enough for a single pie crust (just omit 1 T. of maple syrup).
6 apples, peeled and cut into chunks
6 tbsp. maple syrup
1 tbsp. cinnamon
pinch of cloves
1-2 tbsp. ghee
juice of one small lemon
Saute gently until nearly cooked (wide frying pan, uncovered, is perfect); sprinkle with 2 tbsp. quick cooking tapioca granules and stir well. Let cool.
