Secret Recipe Club: Apple Pie Bites

It’s been a long time since I’ve had the ability to do a Secret Recipe Club post, so I’m really excited to be healed enough and organized enough to be able to participate.

This month I was assigned Mrs. Happy Homemaker, a new-to-me blog by Crystal. When Crystal says she’s a happy homemaker, she means it! In addition to three kids and a husband, she currently has 23 pets of the dog, cat, rabbit and chicken variety. Crystal, I’d like to know how you do it. Just reading that on your about-me page made me tired!

I browsed Mrs. Happy Homemaker for a good long while – and let me tell you, there’s a lot to choose from. First I thought I might make Crystal’s Twice Baked Stuffed Sweet Potatoes, then I thought maybe I’d make Meatball Lasagna, but all bets were off when I clocked Crystal’s Bite-Size Apple Pies with just 5 ingredients!

First of all, these little bites of win are perfect for any time you’re craving apple pie. They come together so quickly and easily, my sister was like, “Wait, that’s IT?!”

They’re good hot. They’re good cold. They’re good reheated in the microwave with a dollop of vanilla bean ice cream on top. Crystal is pretty darn genius.

The only thing that I did differently to Crystal is to use apple pie spice instead of straight cinnamon. We just happened to have some lying around, and they really brought out that homey, comforting flavor you expect from apple pie. Feel free to use homemade pie crust, and straight cinnamon.

When I was making them, I also couldn’t help but think how Nanny would have tucked a small slice of sharp cheddar cheese in each pastry roll. She loved cheddar cheese on her apple pie, and I know she would have loved this recipe.

I'm in agreement with the cheddar rolled up in there and I love the simplicity of these bites.
