With the fall season now in full swing, my roommates and I have been on an unapologetic apple, pumpkin and butternut squash kick. While on Pinterest, I came across a recipe for a modified version of an apple pie. Because it was so simple—and because I had a huge bag of apples from the farmer’s market sitting on the counter—I decided to try it out. I modified it a little and came up with my own recipe. Check it out below!
What You’ll Need:
- 1 McIntosh apple
- 4 tablespoons brown sugar
- 3 teaspoons cinnamon
- 2 tablespoons melted butter
- 1 can Pillsbury refrigerated crescent rolls
- 1 baking sheet
- Pam No-Stick spray
What You’ll Do:
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Grease your baking sheet with Pam.
- Core and cut your apples into thin slices (leave the skin on).
- Lay out the crescent rolls on the greased baking sheet.
- Add layers of butter, brown sugar and cinnamon (add more to taste).
- Add on the slices of apple starting at the wider end of the crescent roll, and then start wrapping everything up in the crescent.
- Once all of the crescents are rolled up, brush some butter over the tops, and then sprinkle some cinnamon and brown sugar on top as well.
- Let bake for 20 minutes, or until the crescents are golden brown.
Even if you have zero baking experience, this recipe can be completed easily. It’s straightforward, simple and absolutely delicious. Serve the hot apple pie bites with vanilla ice cream for an added treat. This is a perfect dessert to make if you’re having friends over, going to a tailgate or just in the mood for a little something sweet.
If you don’t finish eating them all in one sitting, place the leftovers in a plastic bag and store them in the refrigerator. To re-heat, place them on a plate, and heat them up in the microwave for about 20 seconds.
