{Gluten and Dairy Free} Apple Pie Bites

I LOVE this idea from The Blond Cook.  To make it dairy and gluten free, I would use non-dairy butter instead of butter. I would also use my pie dough recipe. You will need to use plenty of brown rice flour to make it not stick. I would be tempted to do it more in mini pockets (cut out circles with the top of a glass, put the filling in the middle, another on top and then use a fork on the edges).  I would dust with oil and brown sugar (egg if you can). Yum!
