These little pockets of joy are inspired by the mini pies I used to buy as a kid at the corner store down the street. These rectangular hand pies — some of you may know they as home run pies— were perfect: flaky crust, thick, luscious filling with just the right about of gloppiness, and a thin layer of crackly sugar glaze on the outside.
Here, I'm giving my childhood memories a Diaspora Co. glow-up with our house blend Chai Masala. The warming spices of the chai spice mix — cardamom, fennel, cinnamon, ginger, black pepper, and cloves — are made to be paired with apples. I like using a mix of sweeter apples (mimicking the sweetness of a nice cup of chai) that retain a little bit of a bite when cooked like honey crisp, Gravenstein or Braeburn.
