These Caramel Apple Pie Pockets are as awesome as Mom's apple pie—with this added bonus: People love having their own individual pies!

Let's Make It
Preheat the oven to 400ºF.
Slice each of the rolled pie crusts into quarters. You'll end up with 12 triangles, slightly rounded on one end. Set the pieces aside and make the filling.
Add the flour and spices to the diced apples and mix to thoroughly combine, being sure all the apple pieces are coated.
Mix the egg and water to create the egg wash.
Take one dough triangle and brush the entire surface, lightly, with the egg watch.
Add 2 - 3 Tablespoons of the apple filling to one side of the triangle.
Sprinkle about 1 Tablespoon of the Kraft Caramel Bits over the apple filling.
Fold the empty half of the dough over the filled side and seal all the edges by pressing them together with your fingers.
Cut two or three decorative slits in the top of the crust to allow steam to escape.
Brush the top of the pie pocket with a light coating of egg wash. Sprinkle with a little extra granulated sugar, if desired. I like the extra crispness and "shine" the sugar crystals create.
Place on an ungreased baking sheet and repeat the steps with all the remaining pie crust triangles.
Bake the pie pockets for 15 - 20 minutes at 400 degrees. Watch carefully in the last few minutes to prevent burning. You want them to be a beautiful golden brown, which was achieved in my oven after 17 minutes.
Remove the pies from the oven and cool for 10 or 15 minutes before serving them.
We actually loved them cold from the fridge, as well as warm.
