SALTED CARAMEL PEAR & APPLE HAND PIES
INGREDIENTS
1 - 7 oz. store bought pie crust dough or your homemade favorite
½ cup Granny Smith Apple, peeled and diced
½ cup Bartlett or Bosc Pear, peeled and diced
6 packets
SPLENDA® Naturals Stevia Sweetener
1 teaspoon Cinnamon
2 teaspoon Lemon Juice
2 ¼ teaspoon Cornstarch
¼ cup roughly chopped store-bought soft caramels
¼ warm water
1 Egg lightly beaten
 
PREPARATION
  1. Preheat oven to 400º. In a large bowl, combine fruit, SPLENDA® Naturals Stevia Sweetener, cinnamon, lemon juice, and cornstarch; set aside.
  2. Remove dough from the refrigerator and roll out to ⅛th of an inch. Using a 4in diameter cookie cutter, cut the pastry into even rounds. Place half of the rounds on a lined baking sheet.
  3. Spoon filling into the center of the rounds. Top with a few pieces of caramel, leaving an ample border around the edges. Trace the outer rimmed dough with warm water and top with remaining round. Gently seal the edges, if desired use fork around the edges.
  4. Brush with egg wash and cut slits in the top of each pie. Bake for 20 minutes in preheated oven, or until golden brown.
