Looking for some fall recipe inspiration?
Want the delicious taste of an apple pie but don’t want to go through the time consuming process of making one? Here is a quick and easy apple recipe that anyone can make.
As you may noticed fall is in the air.The air is crisp and the leaves are falling. Actually, do you know what else is falling? Apples!!
It’s probably something you remember doing as a child – going to an orchard and picking your own apples! As a kid I would eat apples like candy. Now as an adult I like them too, but prefer them in a dish, like a dessert….like individual apple pie….like apple pie bites. These bites taste exactly like apple pie but the compact size is perfect for either on-the-go or if you are watching your portions. Also, they are great if you have little ones. Flaky, buttery and warm. Oh did I mention how easy they are to make too? And my kitchen smelled great all day…. apples and cinnamon.
Apple Pie Bites with Cinnamon Streusel
- 2 tubes of crescent roll dough
- 1 can Apple pie filling or Homemade Apple pie filling
- For Homemade Apple Filling :
- 2 apples (small, peel and chop)
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 Tbsp cornstarch
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp nutmeg
- 1 cup water
- pinch of sea salt
- For streusel topping:
- 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/3 cup of sugar
- 3 tablespoons butter, melted
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/2 tbsp of water
- Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly spray mini muffin pans with baking spray or use silicone muffin pan. Lightly dust a work surface with flour.
- Working with half of the dough at time, roll your crescent roll dough out onto a large cutting work surface.
- Using a knife or a pizza slicer , cut the dough into 6 roughly even squares, don’t worry if they’re not perfect…mine certainly didn’t, but in the end turned out just fine.
- Place each of the dough squares into a mini muffin pan as shown on the picture above. Fill each cup well all the way to the top with apple pie mixture and set aside while preparing the streusel.
- Combine - 1/3 cup of sugar, 1/3 cup of flour, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, 1/2 tablespoon of water and 3 tablespoons of softened butter. Use a fork to mix the butter into the mixture until it becomes crumbly.
- Now you sprinkle some over the apple pie filling in each cup. Bake Bites for 20 minutes, until tops are golden and a toothpick comes out clean.
- Leave the bites in the pan for 10 to 15 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to continue cooling.
- The bites can be stored in an airtight container for up to three days.
- The Apple pie filling can be made in advance and held in the refrigerator for up to 2 days, or frozen for 2 weeks (thaw overnight in the fridge before using.)
