I haven't been baking much in this summer heat, but saw a post on Facebook for some little apple bites that looked easy and like something that would be fun to make with grandkids, or for a quick dessert sometime, so printed it and some comments on the site about changes, got the ingredients today that I needed and baked some using some of the suggestions from people. They were super easy and tasted good. My son, Joe, ate 2 before dinner and 1 after. I had 1 with a scoop of ice cream which is definitely my perfected method for anything that vaguely resembles pie. Next time those grandkids come over we will be making another batch. It makes 8, so they won't be around long!
My adapted version of Little Apple bite:
1 can of crescent roll dough-make sure it's for the rolls..I accidently bought a crescent SHEET and had to cut it so they don't look as nice.
1 Granny Smith apple
3 Tablespoons of melted butter
Cinnamon/sugar/nutmeg mix (recipe to follow)
Heat oven to 375
in a small bowl mix 1/2 cup sugar, 1/2 tsp cinnamon and 1/4 tsp nutmeg. set aside.
unroll crescent rolls and separate them into their 8 triangles. brush melted butter on each section. sprinkle above sugar mixture on each one generously, reserving some for later step.
peel and core apple. slice 1/2 inch slices reserving 8 for the bites..the rest can go into your mouth. you don't want them too thick so they can properly cook. lay one slice on the fatter end of the crescent and roll up like you would if you were making crescents. set on a parchment lined cookie sheet. after all of them are rolled up, brush with remaining butter and sprinkle on the rest of the sugar mixture. Bake for 15-16 minutes until apples are soft. cool until warm and eat.
