(I used 2 x 400g (14oz) rolls of frozen pastry)
peeled and chopped
Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F.
Peel and chop the apples into 1cm (½in) dice.
Melt butter in a large pan then add the apples and cook, stirring regularly, for 5 minutes.
Add the brown sugar and cinnamon and cook for 7-10 minutes until the apples are cooked and the sauce has thickened.
Remove from the heat and allow to cool to room temperature.
Roll the pastry out on a floured surface and using a cookie cutter or glass, cut 24 discs of pastry out.
Once the filling is cool, place a tablespoon of filling into the center of 12 of the pastry discs.
Beat the egg and carefully brush some of the egg around the edge then cover with the remaining pastry discs.
Carefully press the pastry together then crimp with a fork.
Transfer the pies to two sheet pans lined with parchment paper. Using a sharp knife, cut slits into the top of each pie to allow steam to escape.
Brush the pies with the remaining egg and sprinkle with sugar.
Place in a preheated oven and allow to bake for 15-20 minutes or until the pies are gold brown and crisp. Remove from the oven, allow to cool for 10 minutes then serve.
