REVIEW: New Caramel Apple-Pecan Hand Pie From The Friar’s Nook at Magic Kingdom

Today we stopped by The Friar’s Nook at Magic Kingdom Park to try the new Caramel Apple-Pecan Hand Pie. Let’s see how it fared.

Caramel Apple-Pecan Hand Pie — $5.99

Drizzled with Vanilla Custard Sauce

The Friar’s Nook is a quick-service dining location inside Fantasyland at Magic Kingdom. Inspired by the classic Disney animated film “Robin Hood,” you can find The Friar’s Nook across from the entrance to Seven Dwarves Mine Train. It is worth noting that while this hand pie does show up on the breakfast menu at The Friar’s Nook on the MyDisneyExperience app, it is not available for purchase until after 11 a.m.

This hand pie has a classic crispy filo dough crust that is nice, crispy, and warm. The pie itself tastes very fresh.

The outside is covered in cinnamon sugar which is delicious, but very messy. Our hands were covered in sugar instantly, but it adds a nice cinnamon-sweet touch that is needed. There is a vanilla custard sauce drizzled over the hand pie, and it is not too sweet, but admittedly tastes more like icing than custard. We liked the drizzle a lot. It almost replicates the effect of a scoop of vanilla ice cream on a slice of warm apple pie.

The inside is layered with your typical canned apple pie filling. Surprisingly, what we enjoyed most was the layers of pecans on the inside. They add a nice texture and crunch to round out the bite nicely.

Overall, we would say this hand pie is worth the price. It’s not necessarily something we would come running back for only because of how messy it was, but it’s easy enough to eat while you walk around the park.

It would be better on a cooler day, though.
