This recipe is definitely a new favorite of mine. These apple pie bites are super simple and easy to make. The prep time is around 15 minutes, and they are great for the holidays when you may be in a rush. Another amazing component to these treats is that the ingredient list is short, and it’s likely that you have these ingredients laying around in your pantry or fridge. In total it took me around 30 minutes to complete this process, and you can just refrigerate after cooking and pull them out for a snack at any time.
