Instructions
Dough
  1. With a dough cutter or food processor mix spelt flour, salt and sugar together.
  2. Cut in shortening until coarsely combined. Add in water a tablespoon at a time until dough comes together. Turn out dough onto a work surface and shape into a disk. Wrap dough in plastic wrap and refridgerate for 1 hour to 2 days.
Filling
  1. In a large skillet combine diced apples, sugar, apple pie spice, corn starch and lemon juice. Cook over medium heat until apples are soft. Remove from heat and let cool.
Assembly
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  2. Remove dough from fridge and divide in half. On a floured work surface, roll out dough and cut into 5 inch rounds using a large circular cookie cutter or an upside down bowl that is about 5 inches in diameter. Continue rolling and cutting dough until 12 rounds are cut.
  3. Fill each round with a rounded soup spoon of apple filling (adjust amount of filling as needed). Fold dough round in half and pinch ends. Seal ends together by pressing fork tines around the edges.
  4. Place pies on a parchment lined cookie sheet.
  5. Cut small slits in each pie to release steam during baking. Then brush each pie with egg wash and sprinkle with turbinado sugar.
  6. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, rotating halfway through baking.
  7. Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack.
