Even though I spent the weekend with a heating pad on my back and I still managed to create these yummy apple bites. I also left a trail of bengay fragrance everywhere I went. So the fragrance of apples cooking helped to cover that up a bit, giggle. I did keep the cooking to a minimum. But this recipe is quick and easy I grabbed some apples and a can of refrigerator crescent rolls and went to work on this easy peazy recipe. My hubby added them to the top of a scoop of ice cream Yum!
This is a great recipe to make with your children or grandchildren too.
What You Need
1 Granny Smith apple (peeled, cored and cut into small pieces)
1 Tube refrigerated crescent rolls (8 count)
1 Tbsp. flour
4 Tbsp. sugar (extra for dusting)
1 Tbsp. cinnamon (extra for dusting)
1 tsp. lemon juice
3 Tbsp. butter (softened)
Mini round cookie cutter, shot glass or egg cup
Before You Start-Preheat oven to 375° Clean a work area for rolling out the dough, lightly flour surface and rolling pin. Place parchment paper on baking sheet
Lets Make It! In the mixing bowl sprinkle apple pieces with lemon (keeps them from going brown) mix well. Add sugar and cinnamon and mix well to coat all apple pieces. Set aside. Open tube of crescent rolls; roll them all together into a big ball. Place on floured surface and roll out to about 1/8 of an inch thick, try and make a square, it will be easier for folding in half. Scoop apple mixture onto one side of the square, spread evenly and add little dots of butter all over the apple mixture. Fold dough side without apple mixture over on top of the side with the apple mixture. Flatten slightly. Using a cookie cutter, shot glass, or the edge of an egg cup, press down through both layers of dough and filling. This will make little apple filled dough circles. Using a fork gently press down any open edges. Place on prepared baking sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes (until golden). Sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon and serve hot.
