Who doesn’t love a good apple pie? I love them, but unfortunately pie making isn’t my specialty. I wish it was. Definitely something I’m working on! So when I saw this idea for mini apple pie bites floating around I thought it was brilliant. The only thing is that they use actual pie crust and I wanted to make them even easier so I decided to make Apple Pie Bites Using Pillsbury Crescent Rolls! They are SO easy.
Unfortunately, due to my food allergies I can’t eat these (boo), but the rest of the family really enjoyed them!
Apple Pie Bites – Pillsbury Crescent Rolls
My grandma grew up on an apple orchard and has made every apple dish known to man, and she only uses Golden Delicious Apples for baking, so of course, that is what I do. I learn from the best! Pair that with a package of Pillsbury Crescent Rolls, butter and cinnamon and sugar and that’s all you need.
Unroll the crescent dough and cut each triangle into two, so you will end up with 16 pieces.
Apple Pie Bites – Slice’em Thin
Peel the apples and cut them into thin slices. If you cut them thin enough you can easily get 16 slices in one apple, but if you make them thicker you’ll need to use both apples.
Apple Pie Bites – Lots of Cinnamon & Sugar!
Place the raw crescent rolls onto a baking sheet and spread a layer of butter then sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. Lots of it :)
Apple Pie Bites – Roll’em & Bake
Place an apple inside and roll them up and top it off with more butter and cinnamon and sugar.
Place in the oven and they are ready to serve! We’ve served them hot out of the oven and cold and they are both good. If you liked this recipe, check out our Cinnamon Roll Crescent Rolls.

They look so good! I am pinning :)
I’m sure your Grama had good reason to use golden delicious so think I will too as I’m going to make these for sure. Love that they’re easy, don’t have to have too many ingredients. All that other stuff is great but we can’t all afford lots of expensive ingredients. Anyway, might just make some of these to give away for gifts. Would be fairly easy to get a production line going, I’m sure hubs will be in there taking over. I have some great labels from Lia Griffith to put on a container for them. Getting to be that time to think about gifting.
Sorry to hear you have food allergies and can’t eat your own goodies, that’s not fair. Maybe it would be good if had a few, like for cookies, cakes, pies, candy, you name it then maybe I’d have better chance of getting thin like you. It’s not fair, you just had a baby and you’re thin and svelte. Happy week

I am Running to the store tomorrow to get the ing. I think this is going to made a lot and a lot of other fruit in them,
Can you use Granny smith apples,or another kind???
I’ve made them using several types of apples and my family hasn’t been able to tell a huge difference.
