Apple Pie Bites


Apple Pie Crescent Roll Bites 
I hosted a small house warming party on Friday night and I wanted to make a fun snack so of course, I looked on Pinterest for some ideas. I found these apple pie bites and thought that would be a good way to use the apples I'd bought from the farmer's market. 

I used recipes from both Cakes Cottage and The Blond Cook to make my own apple pie bites. 

Apple Pie Bites

Yields 8 

Ingredients

  • ⅓ cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons melted butter
  • ⅓ cup chopped walnuts or pecans
  • 1 Granny Smith apple, cored and sliced into small slices
  • 1 (8-ounce) can of crescent rolls

Instructions 

  1. Heat oven to 375°F. 
  2. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper. 
  3. Unwrap the crescent roll and separate the triangles.
  4. Melt butter and toss apple slices in butter.
  5. Sprinkle each triangle with brown sugar and cinnamon, and sprinkle with the walnuts,
  6. Cut  the apple into 8 equal slices.
  7. Place a piece of apple on each triangle of dough and roll it in a croissant.
  8. Arrange crescent rolls on a cookie sheet.
  9. Spread the remaining butter on each crescent roll and sprinkle with additional sugar and cinnamon.
  10. Bake for 12-15 minutes, until golden.


Apple + Brown Sugar + Walnuts + Crescent Roll

If I were to make this snack again, I'd use smaller apple slices. I thought my slices were a bit too big to fit inside the crescent roll. I also might've doubled the recipe so it would make 16 and not 8.
