Maple Leaf Hand Pies

I don't know if it was looking at our still bare turkey tree all day, or the fact we raked up all but the last few straggling leaves, from our trees this weekend, but when it came to making dessert tonight, I just couldn't resist adding a few leaves to the table.

The leaf shapes were cut with a cookie cutter, from store bought pie dough, filled with apple pie filling, and then sealed with a fork.

They were transferred to a greased cookie sheet, brushed with egg white, and sprinkled with sugar and cinnamon.

Finally, they were baked for 10 minutes, at 450 degrees Fahrenheit.

I think they might have looked a little prettier without the cinnamon, and sugar, but they tasted great, and it wasn't long before the plate was as bare as the trees outside.

It's great to be a homeschooler.
