Here’s how you can whip up some delectable apple pie bites in no time flat.
One Can Crescent Rolls
3 Tablespoons Butter, melted
1 Teaspoon Apple Pie Spice*
¼ Cup Packed Light Brown Sugar
⅓ Cup Walnuts or Pecans, chopped
1 Granny Smith Apple, cored and sliced into eight ½” slices
* Alternatively, you can use ground cinnamon in place of apple pie spice. However, it’s also quite easy to make your own apple pie spice. To make a bit over 2 tablespoons, combine 1 ½ tablespoons ground cinnamon with 1 ½ teaspoons ground nutmeg and 1 teaspoon allspice.
1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees, and like a baking sheet with parchment paper.
2. Open up your can of crescent rolls, unroll them, and separate them into individual triangles.
3. Mix the brown sugar and apple pie spice (or cinnamon) in a small bowl.
4. Arrange your crescent roll dough triangles onto the parchment-lined baking sheet.
5. Brush butter onto each of the triangles, then evenly distribute the sugar and spice mix between them.
6. Sprinkle chopped nuts evenly among the triangles.
7. Place an apple slice on the wide end of each triangle and then roll the dough into a croissant.
8. Brush additional butter on each roll and sprinkle a little extra sugar and spice mix on each one.
9. Bake these for about 10 to 12 minutes, until golden brown.
10. Let your apple pie bites cool for about 5 to 10 minutes.
11. Serve warm and enjoy!
The best part is that if anyone asks to make this recipe, it is easy to explain – and also easy enough for the kiddos to pitch in!
