These apple hand pies are the perfect bite-sized dish for celebrating the 4th of July. For many Americans, apple pie is a staple holiday dish. This recipe puts a fun twist on the classic patriotic treat by shrinking it down into a hand-held version.

The apple hand pies are made using pre-made pie crust, which allows for quick and easy assembly. The recipe also called for granny smith apples, unsalted butter, brown sugar, all-purpose flour and a mix of classic apple pie spices. After you have chopped your apples, mix them with the spices and a little bit of lemon juice. Next, cut out six-inch rounds from your pie crusts and fill them with your pie mixture. Fold the crusts over and seal them by pressing down with a fork. Drizzle the miniature pies with butter and sugar and then bake for 25 minutes. Serve your pies warm for a fun and delicious Independence Day dessert.
