Recipe: Apple Pie Bites

When it comes to desserts I am obsessed with bitesized sweets. I am not sure if it is because I feel less guilty about eating them or because they are just so cute. Check out these Apple Pie Bites I made as a Thanksgiving treat.

Supplies 

  • 1 Apple
  • Crescent Roll Dough
  • 3 tbsp of butter
  • Apple Pie Spice Or Cinnamon,  Nutmeg, and Cardamom
  • Brown Sugar
  • Parchment Paper
  • Baking Pan

*I made a double batch so I needed 2 apples and 2 packages of crescent rolls.

Time 

  • Prep 10 Minutes
  • Bake time 10-15 Minutes

Difficulty

  • They were very simple and quick to assemble.

First, preheat your oven to 375˚F. Then, peel and slice your apples. I used an apple slicer to cut my apples. If you are not using a slicer note that the crescent rolls come 8 to a pack so you will want to be sure that you have 8 apple slices. While you are cutting your apples you will want to soften your butter. Once both steps are complete, pour about 1 tablespoon of butter over the apples and mix.

In a separate container mix together 1/3 cup brown sugar and 1 teaspoon apple pie seasoning or 1 tsp of cinnamon and 1/2 tsp of nutmeg and a 1/4 tsp of cardamom. I left out the cardamom because I didn’t have it in my pantry, and I still think they tasted delicious. Use what you have!

Separate and lay your crescent rolls on a parchment lined baking pan.

Roll the apples into the crescent rolls, baste with butter, and sprinkle with the remainder of the cinnamon sugar mix.

Place in a 375˚F oven for 10-15 minutes. Let cool for 2 minutes before plating. These left my home smelling better than any fall candle you could purchase. Serve with vanilla ice cream, apple butter, or on their own!
