Ingredients

  • CRUST:

  • 1

    stick unsalted butter, well chilled and cut into 1-inch pieces

  • 1

    cup all purpose flour

  • 3

    tablespoons sugar

  • 1

    teaspoon baking powder

  • 1/2

    teaspoon salt

  • 1/4

    cup ice water

  • FILLING:

  • 1

    apple (your choice), peeled, cored and cut into quarters

  • 1/4

    cup sugar

  • 1

    teaspoon cinnamon

  • Pinch of salt

  • Dash of nutmeg (optional)

Directions

To make the crust, combine the butter, flour, baking powder, salt and sugar in a food processor with a steel blade and pulse just until it resembles course crumbs. Slowly pour in the ice water and pulse just until combined and a dough ball forms. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least one hour. When the dough has chilled, roll it out on a well floured surface until it's quite thin. Using a round cutter, cut out an equal number of circles. You can re-roll the scraps to use up all the dough. The number of circles you get will depend on your size cutter but I used a 3 1/2-inch cutter and got about 10 circles. In a bowl, combine the sugar, cinnamon, salt and nutmeg. Slice each apple quarter as thinly as you can and place 2 or 3 slices on half of your dough circles. Sprinkle a couple of teaspoons of the sugar/cinnamon mixture over the apple slices and top with the blank dough circles. Using a fork, crimp the edges so that the filling doesn't run out and cut a criss-cross slit across the tops. Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, sprinkle the tops of the cookies with a tablespoon of additional sugar, if desired, and bake in a pre-heated 350°F oven for 20 to 30 minutes or until the cookies are a light golden brown.
