After pinching the pies closed, they went into a 400 degree convection oven for 8 minutes.
After centers, I decided to stay and help take the kids to ponies, and then to see the animals, (sheep, goats, chickens, and rabbits) which is always a huge hit with the kids.
E running to the pony paddock through the lower meadow:
Having a turn on one of the new wooden ponies.
After we returned from the meadow, the kids ate the cooled apple 'pinch' pies with their snack.
