Hi everyone! I have a new dessert recipe for you today! It’s been awhile, so I figured it was about time for something yummy. This recipe is for Apple Pie Bites and we found the recipe HERE on this blog called The Blond Cook.

Here is how we made them:

Step #1   Gather Ingredients:

  • ¼ cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon apple pie spice, and additional apple pie spice (about ¼ teaspoon) for sprinkling on top of crescent rolls
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • ⅓ cup chopped pecans
  • 1 small Granny Smith apple, cored and sliced into 8 (1/2-inch) slices
  • 1 (8-ounce) can Pillsbury Original crescent rolls

Step #2   Preheat oven to 375°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper (or spray pan with cooking spray).

Step #3   In a small bowl, combine brown sugar & apple pie spice. Set aside.

 

When we were making this, we realized that we did not have any apple pie spice and so I went on a search on Pinterest to find out how to make your own. Here is the recipe we used from The Marvelous Misdaventures of a Foodie blog:

DIY Apple Pie Spice

  • 3 Tbsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 Tbsp ground nutmeg
  • 1 ½ tsp ground allspice
  • ½ tsp ground cardamom

In a small bowl stir together cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice and cardamom until well combined. Store in an airtight container.

The funny thing is that when we were trying to make the apple pie spice, we realized we didn’t have any allspice and so I ended up finding a recipe for that on Pinterest as well HERE on a blog called Walking On Sunshine.  So, just in case someone needs that recipe, here it is:

  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp Nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp Cloves

Makes 1 tsp of Allspice.
