Servings 12 people
- 1 box pie crusts 2 count, brought to room temperature
- 3 tablespoons unsalted butter divided
- 2 medium apples peeled, cored and cut into 1/4-inch dice
- 1/3 cup Karo® Light Corn Syrup
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 cup Fisher® Chopped Pecans
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Unroll pie crusts onto parchment paper. Use a round cookie cutter or cut 3 inch rounds in each crust.
Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a medium nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add apples and cook, stirring frequently, 5 minutes or until apple is tender. Transfer apples from skillet into a medium bowl using a slotted spoon and set aside.
Melt remaining 1 tablespoon butter in skillet. Stir in corn syrup and cinnamon and bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium low and simmer for 2 to 3 minutes or until mixture begins to thicken. Remove from heat. Stir in reserved apples and nuts.
Place a heaping tablespoon of apple mixture onto the middle of half of the round cut out pieces of crust. Place remaining crust rounds over top of filling and use fork to press edges firmly. Cut a few slits on top to allow for steam. Brush lightly with egg whites and bake for 15-20 minutes, until golden. Remove and serve warm.
