  • 3Transfer dough to a working surface and shape into a thick circle using your hands

  • 5Filling:
  • 6Squeeze the lime juice in a large bowl
  • 7Peel, core and mince the apples
  • 8As you mince, place the apples in the bowl and stir to coat them with the juice, so they do not brown
  • 9Add remaining ingredients o filling and mix well
  • 10As an alternative, dice the apples in large pieces and pulse with remaining filling ingredients in a food processor until very small (be careful not to end up with applesauce!)

  • 17Add 1 heaping tbsp filling in the center of each dough piece (without the juice from the bottom of the bowl) and close it with a fork, crimping the edges
