When fall rolls around, there’s nothing better than the aroma of apples and cinnamon wafting through the house. This recipe for Baked Apple Pie Pockets To Go is perfect for those who crave the flavors of a classic apple pie but need a portable option. It reminds me of a trip I took to a quaint little apple orchard with my family in upstate New York. We spent the day picking apples, and later, we indulged in fresh-baked apple treats from their bakery. Inspired by those flavors and the fun of that day, I love making these pie pockets when I’m feeling nostalgic.

These pockets are incredibly versatile. You can tweak the spices to your liking – adding a bit of allspice or cloves for extra warmth. And if you’re like me and enjoy a bit of a twist, try adding a handful of raisins or a drizzle of caramel to the apple filling. For those who prefer a bit of tartness, using Granny Smith apples is a great choice, while Honeycrisp or Gala apples offer a sweeter profile.

The great thing about these apple pie pockets is that they are perfect for any occasion. Whether you’re packing them for a picnic, serving them at a family gathering, or just enjoying them as a treat on a cozy evening, they are sure to be a hit. The flaky puff pastry combined with the rich, spiced apple filling makes each bite a delightful experience. Plus, the parchment paper pockets add a charming touch and make them easy to carry around.

Baking Copycat Baked Apple Pie Pockets To Go


Can I use a different type of pastry for the apple pie pockets?

Yes, you can substitute puff pastry with phyllo dough or even crescent roll dough. However, keep in mind that this might alter the texture and baking time.

What type of apples work best for this recipe?

Granny Smith, Honeycrisp, or Braeburn apples are great choices because they hold their shape well during baking and provide a nice balance of sweetness and tartness.

How can I prevent the puff pastry from becoming soggy?

To avoid soggy pastry, make sure to cook the apple filling until most of the liquid has evaporated. Additionally, letting the mixture cool slightly before spooning it onto the pastry helps.

Is it necessary to peel the apples?

Peeling the apples is recommended as it provides a smoother texture in the filling. However, if you prefer more fiber and a slightly different texture, you can leave the skins on.

Can I make these apple pie pockets ahead of time?

Yes, you can prepare the apple filling and assemble the pockets a few hours ahead. Keep them refrigerated until you are ready to bake. You can also bake and then freeze them, reheating in the oven before serving.

What is the purpose of the egg wash?

The egg wash helps give the apple pie pockets a golden, glossy finish. It also helps to seal the edges, ensuring the filling doesn’t leak out during baking.
