  • 1 lb Pie dough chilled (see notes)


  • 10 ounces pork sausage
  • 1 cup Granny Smith apple peeled and diced
  • 1 cup onion diced
  • 1 teaspoon dried sage (or more to taste)
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 egg beaten with 2 teaspoons of cold water for egg wash.


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Mix sausage, apple, onion and seasoning together in a bowl or food processor. If using a food processor, pulse just until blended to keep the texture of the filling.
  • On a floured surface, roll out pastry to 1/8" to 1/4" thickness. Using round cutters, cut out circles. (The size of the cutter will determine the amount of filling and the number of hand pies you'll get.) I made 10 small, 4" pies and a half dozen larger, 6" pies.
  • Use about 1 1/2 Tablespoons filling for the small pies and about 3 Tablespoons for the large pies.
  • Moisten the edges of the pies with water and fold over, using the back of a fork to seal the pies.
  • Place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicon baking mat.
  • Brush pies with egg wash.
  • Bake at 400 degrees F. for 15 minutes. Lower the oven temperature to 350 degrees F. and continue baking an additional 15 to 20 minutes, until golden brown.
