These incredibly delicious (and easy) Apple Pie Bites are going to be your go-to apple dessert in a hurry!
Honestly, when I took the first bite… I thought, “How can something this easy be so damn good?”. In less than 30 minutes you can whip up these tasty little apple pies that are a perfect last-minute Thanksgiving (or anytime!) dessert.
How did I come across this idea?
I recently had the honor of contributing a recipe and photograph to my hometown elementary school’s fundraiser cookbook (those are my Cheddar Jalapeno Corn Muffins!).
I was skimming through the cookbook when I came across a recipe very similar to this one. Whenever I find a recipe that I want to make, I’ll always look for different variations of the recipe and adapt it to make it my own.
This easy recipe starts out with placing Pillsbury crescent rolls on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. You’ll spread a mixture of brown sugar and apple pie spice on the crescent rolls.
Then spread a few chopped pecans onto each crescent roll.
Next, you’ll place an apple slice (that has been dipped in melted butter) on the wide end of each crescent roll. I left the peeling on my apple slices, but you can also peel the apple if you’d like.
Roll ’em up…
Then bake for 10 to 12 minutes, or until golden brown. How easy is that???
This recipe calls for apple pie spice which can be made easily at home with a mixture of cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice.
Update: This recipe has been so popular with my friends and family… everyone loves it! My friend Melissa made a shortcut using canned fried apples with cinnamon, drizzled them with caramel when they came out of the oven and topped with vanilla ice cream. I tried this version and it was also DELICIOUS.
