Trying to find out the answer: how to make apple pie the easy way?
Looking for some fall recipe inspiration? In our search for the best apple pie recipe, we came up with this quick and easy recipe that anyone can make.
Mini Apple Pie Bites are the bomb!
It’s that time of year where the air is crisp and the leaves are falling. Actually, do you know what else is falling? Apples!! I actually have never been apple picking before (gasp) but that is definitely something I’d love to do. As a kid I would eat apples like candy.
As an adult I prefer them in a dish (and I’m not talking about decorative faux apples, although I love those too), like a dessert. I especially love me some apple pie. My mother-in-law whipped up homemade pies last week and I’ve been drooling over the recipe. Then I came across Jessica’s post about her mom’s apple pie and I pretty much died. (But obviously I didn’t, duh, because I’m writing this right now.)
I haven’t made a pie before but to give me a little confidence, I decided to make apple pie bites! Seriously, these are heavenly. Not gonna lie. They 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 and did I mention how easy they are to make too? I used Jessica’s recipe but tweaked it, as I usually do.
And, if you want a super shortcut, try using apple pie filling when you’re in a time crunch.
Can it really get any better than sweet apples and cinnamon wrapped in a sugary, buttery crust? I think not.
How to make apple pie filling:
What you’ll need:
- 1 can of crescent rolls
- 2 small apples, peeled and finely chopped
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tbsp flour
- 1 tsp sugar
- 1 tbsp butter, melted
How make apple pie is easier than you thought…
Preheat oven to 375 degrees or the temperature it says on the crescent can. In a medium bowl mix apples, cinnamon, flour, 1/2 tsp of the sugar and 1/2 tbsp of the butter. Lightly coat your favorite baking pan with cooking spray.
Open the crescent can and roll out the dough pieces. Lay each individual crescent piece down on the pan and stretch them a bit. Place a spoonful of the mixture in each piece, roll up and secure the ends by taking the corner of the dough and wrapping it towards the center.
Brush the remaining butter on top and sprinkle with sugar. Bake for about 11-12 minutes or until golden brown. Let sit for 1-2 minutes and serve with your favorite fall drink!
