Who doesn’t love apple pie?! It’s such an American dessert and is in season all year long! However, I especially love apple pie around the end of the year. The apple and cinnamon flavors just really remind me of fall!
Now, I don’t know about you guys but making the homemade crust and all that just isn’t in the cards sometimes- I am WAY too busy! Also, sometimes you just want a little piece and then you’re left with a whole pie!
Brexton and I decided to make these little apple pie bites that are so quick and easy! They’re made with crescent rolls so they would be great to bring as a dessert to a holiday gathering where guests can easily grab and go! We also paired it with a healthy caramel sauce made from dates!
- Crescent rolls
- 1 large apple (we used granny smith)
- 1/3 cup pecan pieces
- 1 tsp apple pie spice
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 3 tbsp butter
- 16 Medjool dates pitted
- 3/4 cup almond milk
- Vanilla extract
- Sea Salt
- Preheat oven to 375
- Roll out crescent rolls onto a greased cookie sheet
- In a bowl combine light brown sugar and apple pie spice
- Spoon mixture onto each crescent roll, then top with pecan pieces
- In another bowl pour the melted butter over 1 large granny smith apple cut into slices
- Take one slice and place it on the wide end of each crescent roll
- Start rolling the crescent rolls up starting with the big side first
- Bake for 13 minutes until golden brown
For the Caramel Sauce
- Combine all ingredients in a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth
- Once your apple pie bites are cool, dip them into your caramel dipping sauce and enjoy!
