Last month, I had the privilege of visiting Pillsbury’s Test Kitchens. In addition to letting us play around in their kitchens and with their products, we also spent time with their photography staff. I know I’ll never be a “magazine quality” photographer but I still learned so much and hopefully you’ll see some of what I learned in all my future photos.

During the photo session, they kept using these apple inside a crescent roll for the example. All I kept thinking while they were giving these amazing tips was-I need to go wrap apples in crescent dough. I had the whole recipe in my head while sitting there. I knew they would be a huge hit with my kids.

I didn’t even have to think about it. Easy as ….Apple Pie. No, easier.

I will tell you, many of these photos for these Apple Pie bites were inspired from my time with Pillsbury. I played with the shadows. I played with the reflector board. I used the baked on parchment paper instead of a fresh sheet.

And I was right about the kids, This recipe makes 8 sweet little bites. I got one. the rest were devoured by my youngest and oldest in a matter of minutes. The perfect after school snack. Add a little ice cream or some whip cream and you’ve got dessert. Or since there’s fruit involved, why not a quick, easy breakfast treat?

Ingredients

  • 1 can Pillsbury Crescent Rolls

  2. Combine water and lemon juice in a small bowl. Combine sugar and cinnamon in another small bowl.
  3. Slice apple into 8 wedges, removing seeds and skin if desired (I leave the skin on.) Dip each apple wedge into lemon water, let excess water drip off then roll wedge in cinnamon sugar.
  4. PLace apple wedge on wide end of crescent dough, add a few chopped walnuts and roll dough as best you can into a crescent shape.
  5. Place wrapped apple on a parchment lined baking sheet. Once all wedges are rolled, use remaining cinnamon sugar to sprinkle on top.
  6. Bake for 12-15 minutes, until golden. Remove from oven and let cool for 10 minutes before eating.

  1. Love these apple pie bites! I am a huge pie eating fan but, the making pie crust part? Ya, not so much! This looks like a perfect way to get my pie fix with A LOT less work. Yum! :)

  2. I love how easy these are Joan and my kids would devour them also. I’m glad you had the experience at Pillsbury and the photos are making my mouth water. :)

    I teach English in Nicaragua and don’t have some ingredients for your wonderful recipes. I think I can use pie crust for these apple pie bites. Do you have a pie crust recipe that you like?

  4. I’ve been working on my photography as well. What a great opportunity to learn at Pillsbury. These bites look absolutely scrumptious.

  5. I love little bites… but I have a feeling I wouldn’t be sharing too many of these with my husband. I’ll just have to make them when he’s not home. :)

  6. Love those apple pie recipes. They are so yummy looking. ummm!

  7. Pie for breakfast? Why not? Lol, I think I’ve don’t that plenty of times. There is fruit ;). These look delicious and would barely last 20 minutes out of the oven.

  8. I never think to buy crescent rolls when I’m at the grocery store and now you’re making me kick myself for it! Those little bites look fantastic. I’m drinking my first cup of coffee at the moment and agree with you, since it has fruit in it, it’s perfect for breakfast (maybe even two). Heck, it’s a Pop Tart, only home made.

  9. This looks amazing! Pinning, and thanks for sharing this at Creativity Unleashed!

  10. This recipe looks fabulous will definitely try! but please can you tell me where to buy crescent rolls!? thank you! :) x

  11. Oh wow, yummy apple filled deliciousness in 15 minutes!! Thank you so much for sharing them with us at Best of the Weekend Joan. Have a great week. :)

  12. These look wonderful. We can’t get Pillsbury Crescent Rolls here in Australia so I will just have to make some myself!

  13. These look SO yummi, Joan!
