We’re pleased to welcome Megan Zietz back again this week as our guest blogger; we love her quick approach to the beloved apple pie! Don’t forget to check out her blog: The Frugalista Diaries
These last few days I’ve been cooped up in the house battling the rain and nursing a cold, so I haven’t been up to making a trip to the grocery store to grab ingredients to whip up a homemade apple pie. So of course, as I was grabbing the crescent rolls from the fridge It dawned on me that I could use them to make bite sized apple pies. Genius! So I grabbed an apple, some brown sugar, cinnamon and melted a little butter and got started. How perfect is this for Summer parties, no need for forks, plus it’s quick and mess free!
Here’s How I Did It…
Apple Pie Bites – Serves 8
1 (Tart) Apple Sliced
3 Heaping Tbsp. Brown Sugar
2 Tbsp. Cinnamon ( I used a homemade Cinni-Sugar Mix)
1 Tbsp. Melted Butter
1 Pkg. Of Immaculate Baking Co. Crescent Rolls
*(I use immaculate baking co. when I’m not doing homemade - no hydrogenated oils and non gmo – it’s the only thing I feel safe about giving my kids when it’s not from scratch)
Preheat Oven to 350˚
1. Roll out the dough on a greased cookie sheet, brush with butter and sprinkle Brown Sugar and Cinnamon in individual pieces of dough.
2. Roll up an apple slice in the dough forming a crescent, brush with melted butter and top with cinnamon. Repeat for others.
3. Bake for 12-15 Mins at 350˚.
4. Remove from Oven, filling will be hot! Serve alone or with a dollop of Vanilla Ice Cream.
