How to prevent pie filling from leaking from these Apple Pie Raviolis
While frying, the pie crust will fluff and pull apart at the seams if they are not sealed tight enough. Be sure to leave a wide crimped or sealed portion to prevent the apple pie filling from oozing out during the oil bath. Use plenty of pressure to seal the edges all the way around the raviolis. Here is a quick tip for fluffed pie shell. Use a sharp knife or pizza cutter to cut the excess off after crimping.
Some for now, some for later
These Apple Pie Raviolis can be prepared and fried to a golden perfection right away, or you can make them ahead and save some for frying the next day. These versatile fall treats can even be frozen. They can be flash frozen and then placed in an airtight container or zip lock bag.
You can also let the apple pie raviolis set out for 20 to 30 minutes until the crust has dried out a bit. Afterwards, place them in a single layer in an airtight container or zip top bag. Place these raviolis in the freezer for up to 3 months.
If you are anything like me and you like to prepare ahead of time, place the apple pie raviolis in a single later in an airtight container. These raviolis can be refrigerated over night and baked the next day.
How about different shapes
For a more creative approach than a square or rectangle ravioli, try grabbing your favorite holiday themed cookie cutter. Use the cookie cutter to make your favorite fall leaves, turkeys, or even an apple shape then fill the pastry dough as necessary with the apple pie filling. The results will wow your guests!
How to store Apple Pie Raviolis after being cooked
Apple Pie Raviolis taste best and freshest the day of frying. Store these golden delectables in an air tight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.
How to reheat Apple Pie Raviolis
Reheating these delicate little pastries is as simple and easy as pie! Place the raviolis on a parchment paper lined baking sheet and place them in a 350 degree oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until warmed through. For a quicker nuke, place the raviolis on a microwave safe plate and warm them in the microwave for 30 seconds. In both reheating methods, watch for a hot filling. If the apple pie raviolis are hot to the touch, the filling will be even more so. No one likes burnt taste buds!
What to serve with Apple Pie Raviolis
These apple pie raviolis are so versatile, they can be served as a finger food at a holiday party or on your finest china at your Thanksgiving dinner celebration with family.
