Mini Apple Pie Bites

I did a little baking for a neighborhood get together.  It went something like this.

Gather up assistant baker.  (That's Sammy)

Search for recipe I had seen recently on a blog.  Somewhere.  Didn't find it.  Ended up loosley following this one.


Dice three granny smith apples and add sugar, cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice to taste.


Check on number one dog to make sure she is doing ok.


Laugh when my picture taking wakes up Katie from her sun nap. 


Prepare a sugar and cinnamon mixture to coat the tops of the crescent pies.


Curse the heat from the oven on the hot day, but then drool from the smell of apple pie wafting through the house.  And jump for joy at how adorable these little crescent pies are.

To make: simply spread the apple pie filling on a crescent triangle then roll it up.  I then dabbed a bit of water on the top and then sprinkled the sugar mixture liberally.  Then cook them per the package. 


And were a beautiful golden brown.


Almost the same golden brown as these two.  Sammy's on the left, Katie on the right.  They took up the job of guarding the cooling pies. 


Then I did a little slice and dice to make single bite sized pie pieces.  Outta this world!  They are presented in a mini muffin papers so they are easy grab and go.


I don't recommend using the oven on a hot hot day, but these were sure worth it.  And a neighbor shared that she does this with chocolate chip filling to make quick and easy chocolate croissants.  Genius!!  I see many more of these in my future!
