gluten free brown butter apple hand pies
  • Crust:
  • 2 1/2 cups gluten-free all-purpose baking flour
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons xanthan gum
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup cold water, or more as needed
  • Filling:
  • 4 apples, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons gluten-free all-purpose baking flour
  • 4 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • Egg Wash:
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 teaspoon white sugar, or as needed (optional)


  1. Pulse 2 1/2 cups flour, 2 tablespoons sugar, xanthan gum, and salt together in a food processor; add 3/4 cup butter, 2 eggs, and cold water. Blend until evenly mixed and crumbly but holds together when pinched; add more cold water, 1 tablespoon at a time, if needed. Form dough into a ball, place in a bowl, and chill for 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  3. Mix apples, 1/4 cup white sugar, brown sugar, 2 tablespoons flour, lemon juice, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a large bowl.
  4. Melt 6 tablespoons butter in a saucepan over medium heat until foamy; continue cooking and stirring until butter is brown with a nutty aroma, 3 to 5 minutes. Pour browned butter over apple mixture; stir to coat.
  5. Roll dough out on a lightly floured surface to 1/8-inch thickness; cut into 4-inch circles. Whisk 1 egg and 1 tablespoon water together in a bowl; brush egg wash over each circle of dough. Spoon about 2 tablespoons apple filling on 1 half of each circle; fold the other half over the filling. Crimp the edges of each pie together using a fork. Place pies on a baking sheet; brush tops with egg wash and sprinkle with 1 teaspoon white sugar.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven until pies are lightly browned, about 30 minutes.
