Mini Heart Shaped Apple Pies

This post was intended to be posted on Feb 14th, got caught up in the usual working day routine so much, that I was not even able to get near the laptop. Hope you all had a great valentines Day.
Coming to the recipe, this is a super simple one which could be made in minutes if you have couple of apples and any type of pastry sheet in hand. I used the Empanada sheets which tasted crisp and just perfect. This dish can be made for any occasion with different shape and also different fillings, strawberry and ricotta cheese is another great combination. 
I am already thinking about many variations for fillings, both sweet and savory.

1 Apple , peeled and chopped 
1 tblsp brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp melted butter
1 tsp lemon juice
Any type of pastry sheets. cut into heart shapes.
(I used empanada shells , frozen)

Preheat the oven to 400F
Mix the brown sugar, cinnamon, melted butter, lemon juice and apples, keep aside for 10 mins.
Place about a table spoon of the apple mixture in the centre of the cut out pastry sheet.
Cover with another cut out pastry sheet. press the edges using a fork.
Place them in a parchment lined cookie tray. Prick the top with fork, couple of times.

Beat 1 egg in a small bowl and brush the top of the pastry with beaten egg
Bake for 15-20 mins.

Cool before serving. Enjoy with Chocolate syrup or Ice cream.

Do not over fill the pastry, else it will ooze out.
 If the apple mixture is watery, filter the water out of it.
Set the oven temperature as per the instructions in the pastry sheet that you are using. Mine said 400F.
