I've seen dozens of different recipes for these quick snacks, and this is just one way of making this alternative to that famous all-American's apple pie. It's super easy to prepare, and they make such a welcome addition to nearly any picnic or party. Once baked, they travel well, too.

Most apples are OK to use. Granny Smith and Honeycrisp are good because they hold up during baking without getting mushy, and they're widely available. Other good varieties are Jonathan, Jonagold, Melrose, Winesap, Braeburn, Rome Beauty. But baking is minimal, so most varieties should work OK.

How to Make Apple Pie Bites


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, thoroughly blend the cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice and cloves; set aside.
  3. Open package of rolls, and place all 8 crescent rolls on the lined baking sheet, with the wide ends facing you.
  4. Brush a light layer of butter on the surface of each crescent roll. Spread about 1 1/2 teaspoons (or so) of brown sugar on each crescent roll.
  5. Roll apple slices in the cinnamon/nutmeg/clove spice blend until well coated. Place one apple slice at the tip (wide end) of each crescent roll. Starting with the wide end, roll each crescent roll, pinch the tip end to seal. If needed, turn each so that the tip is on the bottom (to avoid unrolling during baking). Brush a little butter over each rolled Apple Bite Bite, and dust the tops with a generous pinch (or more) of remaining cinnamon/nutmeg/cloves spice mix.
  6. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove baking sheet from oven and serve immediately with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, or let cool completely and enjoy later as a quick snack.
