Apple hand pies the size of a cookie.
Preheat oven to 350 F. Place a spoonful of diced apples in the center of 8 (or 10 if you rolled out the dough for extra) pie crust circles. Try to fit as many apples as you can in the center of the pie crust but leave enough room around the edges to seal closed with the remaining 10 circles (step 4).
Place the pies on a nongreased cookie sheet and put in the oven for 10 minutes. After 5 minutes bring the remaining sugar mixture back up to a boil. Pull pies out of the oven after the 10 minutes and brush the tops of the pies with the sugar mixture. Return to the oven for another 7 minutes.
