Mini Apple Empanadas {Bites}

I love the smell of apples baking in the oven. And I love to sprinkle them with cinnamon and sugar...wait-apple empanadas is what I am craving.
So tonight I decided to make my favorite apple empanadas except to make them bite sized :)
I simply followed my original recipe posted here but instead of using my Tupperware empanada maker, I simply used a cookie cutter. I then filled it with about 1/4 teaspoon of the apple filling and brushed egg all the way around on both sides of the "bites".
Make sure you don't overfill because it will seep out. Take care to pinch it closed and brush with the egg so it will bake closed. Also, if your apples are too juicy and the filling too watery, strain it.
Bake for 10 mins. and enjoy :)

                                                       Yummy goodness :)

Two pie crusts yield about 36 mini empanadas.
