preheat oven to 400F
1. mix chopped apple, cinnamon, 1 tbsp turbinado sugar, and cornstarch together
2. cut puff pastry sheet into 9 squares
3. place about a tablespoon of the apple mixture on one diagonal of each square
4. brush beaten egg along the diagonal sides, and fold pastry square corner to corner
5. use a fork to crimp along the touching edges, you should now have triangle hand pies
