These apple pie bites are super easy to make and packed full of delicious cinnamon flavor!
Why I love these Apple Pie Bites
Fall is just around the corner and you can already see the stores full of pumpkin flavored everything. However, I'm more of an apple-everything fan myself, especially when it comes in dessert-form!
My little guy likes to help me bake yummy treats for all seasons, so I'm always trying to think of easy recipes that we can make together. Ones that have just a few ingredients always get a thumbs up in my book because trying to work through a twenty step recipe with a four-year-old just isn't going to end well.
And this apple pie bites recipe is perfect for making with the kids! With only two main "ingredients" plus a bit of sugar & cinnamon, these little apple pie bites are a yummy fall treat!

So simple, that's it!
Recipe Instructions (full printable recipe below)
I love using crescent roll for my apple pie bites because it makes the recipe significantly simpler. You will need two cans of crescent rolls and one can of apple pie filling for this recipe, plus a few teaspoons of sugar and cinnamon.
Start by unrolling and pulling apart the crescent rolls. Coat a muffin tin with non-stick baking spray and place one crescent roll triangle in each tin. Add a heaping spoonful of apple pie filling on top of the dough. Note: you can buy the apple-pie filling at any grocery store or be a bit more adventurous and make it yourself! If you want to make it homemade, you can find a great recipe for it here.
Mix together a teaspoon of cinnamon with two teaspoons of sugar. Sprinkle over the apple pie filling, then pull up the sides of the dough to cover the filling. Don't worry if there are some holes, the dough will rise a bit while baking. Sprinkle a little more of the cinnamon sugar mix over the dough before baking in the oven at 375 for about 15 minutes.
Tips & Tricks for this Apple Pie Bites Recipe
Allow the apple pie bites to cool for a few minutes before removing from the muffin tin. Serve warm and if you happen to have any leftover, store in an airtight container. They'd also be delicious to serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on a cool fall night!
