Whether you’ve got an extra slice of apple pie or the ingredients to make an apple hand pie, these Apple Pie Milkshakes are the perfect twist on the classic dessert! Yep, apple pie in milkshake form. And it tastes exactly like that! You can’t beat the combination of a sweet, buttery crust, apple cinnamon filling, and vanilla ice cream.
You can use a slice of apple pie if you’ve got one on hand, but I also have a really easy apple hand pie recipe for you that only needs one apple. It makes a total of three hand pies, two of which will be added to the milkshake, leaving one for you to snack on.
To get started, you’ll combine the flour, sugar and salt. Add in the chilled butter and work it into the flour mixture until it is almost pea sized. Add in the ice cold water and stir together until it begins to form into a dough. Pat the dough into a disk, wrap it in plastic wrap, and chill it for 15 minutes. Peel and dice the apple into small pieces and place it into a small bowl. Stir in the sugar and cinnamon and set aside.
Now that your dough has chilled, you are ready to roll it out onto a lightly floured surface. Use a 4 or 4 ½ inch round cutter to cut out 6 circles before transferring them to a parchment lined baking sheet and chilling them for a few minutes.
Next, divide the chopped apples among three of the circles, doing your best to keep them in the center. You might have some leftover apples, but you can save them for a snack later on! Whisk together the egg and water before carefully brushing some of the egg wash around the rim of the same three circles.
Top each of those three circles with the other three circles and gently push down to make sure they adhere. Use a sharp knife to cut off any excess dough and cut a few small slits in the center of each hand pie. Carefully coat each hand pie with egg wash and sprinkle with sugar. You can use granulated or turbinado, depending on what you have. Bake the hand pies for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown.
Once the hand pies have baked, transfer them to a cooling rack while you get started on the whipped cream! Mix together the heavy cream and sugar with a handheld or stand mixer on medium high until somewhat stiff peaks have formed. You can cover the bowl in plastic wrap and place it in the fridge until you’re ready to use it.
Now you can get started on those delicious milkshakes! Add the ice cream and milk to a blender and blend for about 10 seconds until thick and creamy. Add in one of the hand pies and puree for 10 seconds, scraping down the side of the blender as needed. Add the second hand pie and puree for another 10 seconds, scraping down the side of the blender again.
Carefully divide the milkshake into two glasses. Top each milkshake with a dollop of whipped cream and dig in! I like to enjoy them with a straw and a spoon so you can also scoop up the small bits of apple and crust. You’ve even got an extra hand pie to enjoy with it!
