Fall has arrived- and I couldn’t be happier. Yep, I’m the basic girl who loves this season. In addition to craving cooler weather and high boots, I’ve been dying for some apple pie recently. Crusty fluffy crust with crisp apples and a kick of cinnamon is my jam! Yo, I could eat #allthepie which is why Thanksgiving is a favorite holiday in my world. And apparently, I’ve passed that love on to my daughters. Claire reminded me of these simple cinnamon apple bites we made with crescent rolls and they were too perfect not to share!
We like to make these during football season, which, praise the Lord, is ON!
Football & fall means the temps dip and that means I can run outside again. Which, I’ll need to do after eating all these apple bites! Ah, the life of a carb lover is hard, y’all!
Simple Cinnamon Apple Bites
- Granny Smith apples
- can of crescent rolls
- 3 tablespoons butter (melted)
- cinnamon spice or apple spices
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- walnuts or pecans (optional)
Prepare the ingredients as follows:
Cut and core your apples into slices. Each apple should yield about 8 slices, which is enough for one batch of bites.
Lay out the crescent roll triangles.
Melt the butter in the microwave for 30-45 seconds (or until completely melted) and set aside.
Combine the brown sugar and spices in a bowl.
Start assembling the apple bites.
Spread the brown sugar mixture on each triangle. I just use a spoonful of mixture and spread evenly with the back of the spoon.
Add the nuts if you choose to do so at this time.
Dip the apple slices in the melted butter and roll the crescent pastry around them. Start at the wide end of the pastry.
Once you’ve rolled them up, brush the tops with more melted butter.
Bake for 10-12 minutes at 375 degrees.
How simple is that?! The whole process takes about 30 minutes from prep to finish.
We don’t think they need anything else, but my mom says you can’t have apple pie without a little bit of vanilla ice cream. Hey, I’m not about to tell my momma she’s wrong!
