Tasty Tuesday: Apple Pie Bites

I don’t like cold weather since I am always cold BUT I do love the Fall.  WHY? Because I can snuggle inside baking and cooking.  I used to do it a lot when Belinda was little BUT I do enjoy it especially for the holidays.   I was going through the recipes trying to decide what to make for Thanksgiving – I get to bring dessert.

I came across this recipe from Blond Cook.  A quick and easy dessert.  I mean who wouldn’t want an awesome dessert in less than 30 minutes.  The best part is it can be made Weight Watcher friendly with just a minor change or two. I am also trying to figure out how to make it gluten free so if you have any suggestions, I would love them!

PREP TIME: 15 minutes.     COOK TIME: 12 minutes.     Serves: 8

Ingredients:

  • 1 (8-ounce) can Pillsbury Original crescent rolls or low fat
  • 1 small Granny Smith apple, cored and sliced into 8 (1/2-inch) slices or fried canned apples
  • 1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon apple pie spice
  • 3 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup pecans (optional)

Directions:

  • Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a small bowl, combine brown sugar and apple pie spice. Set aside.
  • Melt butter and toss apple slices in butter.  Set aside.
  • Arrange crescent roll triangles on baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  • Evenly distribute brown sugar mixture onto each triangle.
  • Sprinkle each triangle evenly with the chopped pecans.
  • Place an apple slice on the wide end of each triangle.
  • Wrap crescent roll dough around each apple.
  • Brush each crescent roll with remaining butter.
  • Sprinkle lightly with additional apple pie spice.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes,
  • Cool for 5 minutes before serving
