Pinterest Pick: Apple Pie Crescent Bites That Are Sure to Please

When you are in the mood for an apple pie, but don’t want the mess, whip up some apple pie crescent bites.

Hey Friends!

I hope I find you well this week 🙂 I just finished my spring break and I have to say it was a nice, restful week of visiting friends back home (in Indiana) and going to the beach here in South Carolina.

Also, I got to work on multiple recipes to share with you! I found the inspiration for this recipe on Pinterest, but the post originated from

Apple Pie Crescents

I don’t bake much, but this is SO EASY!!! I LOVE being able to share simple, quick, scrumptious recipes with you that will make your taste buds dance!


Ingredients you need:

  • 1 red, juicy, tart apple that is good for baking
  • 1 can Pillsbury crescent rolls
  • 3-4 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2-3 tablespoons cinnamon
  • 1-2 tablespoons butter (REAL butter)


Here are the directions with step-by-step pictures. They are so easy to make, you’ll have the recipe memorized after the first batch.

1.) Preheat Oven to 350 degrees F

Always start by preheating your oven.

2.) Melt butter

Next, melt the butter. I do this in the microwave but you can do it on the stovetop too.

3.) Roll out crescent dough

Roll out the crescent roll onto a baking sheet. I used a pizza cutter to cut the crescent roll into 8 pieces. Brush some butter onto each piece.


4.) Mix together brown sugar and cinnamon

Next, mix together the brown sugar and cinnamon. You can add white sugar too if you want. Sprinkle the mixture onto each piece of crescent roll. I used a lot, as you can see below.


5.) Add the apple slices

You need 8 pieces of apple (should be 1 apple) for each can of crescent rolls. Lay a slice of apple at the small end of the roll and start rolling it up. Just press it together, it’s sticky so it works nicely. The first few I did were not very pretty, but it doesn’t matter!


6.) Brush butter on top

Last, brush some more butter on the top of each Apple Pie Crescent Bite and sprinkle with more brown sugar and cinnamon mixture.

7.) Bake the apple pie crescents

Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 15 minutes. I ended up putting mine back in the oven for an extra 2 minutes.


Oh my goodness, look at these absolutely divine Apple Pie Crescent Bites! The brown sugar and butter gets all yummy and sticky and golden brown, soooo good!! The apple gets warm, but still has a little bit of a bite. Add some ice cream and this makes a perfect little dessert! Or it can be a big dessert if you eat more than one 🙂

If you decide to try this recipe, let me know how much you like it! Enjoy!!


Keep Calm and Cook On,

  1. LOL! You and your tart apples! LOL! These look so good, I have to figure out how to make a dough that would be gluten free, I used to cook so much with crescent rolls. I loved coming up with new combinations, cream cheese, dill and smoked salmon, or chicken, peaches, pecans and brie, or pizza filled. Crescent rolls are the perfect food!

    1. LOL!! Girl, I love some tart apples!! I used to work at an apple orchard, one of my many odd jobs I had growing up! If you find a way to make it gluten free, please let me know; one of my aunts was recently diagnosed with Celiac’s disease and has to be gluten free so I have to find new ways to make some of her favorite foods. 🙂
