Heat butter in non-stick pan over medium heat. Add the cubed apple and sauté to soften/cook the apple. Stir it carefully every so often so it doesn't burn.
Add fresh thyme, Maple Leaf Natural Selections Roasted Shredded Pork, salt and pepper. Stir to combine. Transfer to a dish and let cool.
Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Line a couple of baking sheets with parchment.
Place a round of empanada dough on your work surface. Place a heaping spoonful of the pork and apple mixture (about 1/12th of the mixture) in the center. Brush the edge with egg wash all the way around, then fold over the dough to form a half moon. Press the edges together very well, then crimp/shape the edge. You can use a fancy folding technique to pinch the edges or just use a fork. Place on the prepared baking sheets.
Repeat with the rest of filling/dough until you've made 10 to 12 pork pies.
Brush the surface of the hand pies with egg wash.
Bake in the preheated oven for a good 45 minutes, rotating the pans as necessary.
