IMG_3787but you don’t want the whole pie.

{ Perhaps you do, but tch tch you still have fitness goals }

IMG_3780Perhaps I could entice you with these Waffle Hand Pies?

{ Would you like Apple Pie or Rhubarb Strawberry? }

IMG_3814Just heat up your waffle iron or griddle..

IMG_3830dollop the center with pie filling,

{ oohhh maybe Nutella }

IMG_3839brush the griddle lightly with butter..


press and wait..
expect some of the pie filling to bubble over the sides,

but never you mind!

You can let it cool and smear it up with your finger and have a little taste.


Just pop it out

Perhaps add a scoop of local ice cream like this lovely..

IMG_3887As my Grandpa used to say:

{ an apple pie without the cheese is like a kiss without the squeeze }

I loved these without the cheese and without the ice cream and I sure hope you do too. Now where did I put that jar of Nutella…

Griddle Hand Pies
  • 1 Package 7" Tortilla
  • 1 tin apple pie filling (or any fruit pie filling)
  • cinnamon
  • granulated sugar
  • melted butter
  • griddle or panini maker or skillet
  1. Preheat your waffle iron.
  2. I used 10" inch tortillas so precut them to fit the size of my waffle iron.
  3. Measure about 1 tbsp of cinnamon into a small bowl. Stir in enough sugar to make a nice cinnamon sugar sprinkle for your topping.
  4. Spoon and spread a small amount of apple pie filling in the center of one tortilla. Make sure you don't spread it all the way to the outside edge.
  5. Lay another tortilla on top.
  6. Lightly brush both sides with butter. Lightly brush the waffle iron with butter and place the stacked tortillas on. Press down the lid firmly, holding it occasionally to press the pieces together as they bake. Some filling will come out the sides of your waffle iron as the filling heats up.
  7. Bake for about 5-6 minutes or until the tortilla is lightly browned. Remove, brush again lightly with butter and sprinkle with the sugar cinnamon mixture.
  8. Serve warm with ice cream.
  9. Makes as many as you wish, try different pie fillings like Rhubarb Strawberry or even Nutella.
  10. This makes a thin layer of pie filling, if you wanted more, don't press down and work to have less of a design on the top, this would keep more of your filling inside.
