Apple, Cheddar & Turkey Hand Pies
Makes: 8 servings
- 2 cups (500 mL) shredded, cooked Ontario turkey
- 1 tart apple, peeled and grated
- 1/2 cup (125 mL) grated sharp cheddar
- 1 green onion, sliced
- 1/4 cup (50 mL) chopped parsley
- 16 3-inch (7.5 cm) frozen tart shells, thawed
- 1 egg, lightly beaten
- 1/2 tsp (2 mL) coarse salt
In bowl, combine turkey, apple, cheddar, green onion and parsley.
Divide the mixture over eight of the tart shells. Brush edges of tarts with egg and top with remaining shells. Brush with egg and sprinkle each with coarse salt. Using the tip of a sharp knife, make a few ventilation slits in the top of each pie.
Bake at 400°F (200°C) until pastry is golden and filling is hot and bubbling, about 35 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes before serving.
