Are you looking for a delicious fall appetizer? Look no further than these Apple Pie Bites. They are a spin off of my mother’s famous apple pie recipe, and their perfect bite size shape makes them easy to serve for a crowd who just needs a bite! I hope you will try these this fall!

I’m making these apple pie bites the day before my Fall Craft Party. I have a fun group of ladies coming over to work on some fall centerpieces (you can find a tutorial for the centerpieces HERE). I decided to bring in the feel of falling with flavors of apple and cinnamon. My mom makes the most delicious apple pie during the fall and winter months. It’s such an easy recipe, and yet, I have never had another pie that I like better. She is picky about her ingredients, and so am I. So, for this fall appetizer, I have taking her apple pie recipe and made it into something new. All the ladies are bringing an appetizer to share, and so this recipe is my personal contribution.

For this recipe, YOU MUST USE GRANNY SMITH APPLES…there is no substitute. The type of apple, and even the way you cut it matters. If you cut the slices too thick or chunky, the pie will taste like hard, chunky, apples dipped in sugar, HOWEVER, if you dice the apples finally, each tiny piece gets coated in that delicious fall flavor!

I hope you enjoy this easy, Fall Appetizer Recipe!

Apple Pie Bites Recipe

Makes about 26 Bites/pieces

5 Small Granny Smith Apples, peeled and cut into very small pieces
2/3 cup sugar
3 T butter, unsalted
1/2 T. cinnamon
1/2 juice of one lemon
2 T. Flour, all purpose
pinch of salt
1 Box Pillsbury Refrigerated Pie Crust

1. Core, Peel and dice apples in to very small pieces.
2. In a sauce pan, melt butter, and add sugar, lemon juice, cinnamon, sugar flour, and salt (all ingredients except the pie crust).
3. Cook on medium heat for about five minutes, until sauce is thick and apples are tender.
4. Cool sauce to room temperature.
5. Spread sauce on one pie crust, and then top crust with lattice.
6. Use a small-neck wine glass, about 1 and 1/2 inches round to cut out pieces.
7. Line baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mat before laying apple bites on a cookie sheet.
8. Bake at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes….for the first 20 minutes, lay a piece of foil (shiny side up) over the top just to prevent pie crust from burning or overblowing. I prefer a soft, moist pie crust instead of a crunch, and the foil helps with this.
