I know, I say everything is super easy, but these apple pie bites really are SUPER EASY! I love to make these treats for parties because everyone loves them and they are simple enough for the kids to help make. You need to be able to cut an apple and roll some dough, that’s it. Well almost, that’s all you need to do. There is sugar involved and a little love, but I’m telling you, you are going to want to make a double batch just so you can eat half of them before you share. Apple pie bites are the best bite-sized treat ever!

Super Easy Apple Pie Bites
Now, I realize, bites is not really a whole pie. It's definitely not made in a pie dish (although you could use a pie dish instead of a cookie sheet) – but these are a favorite around here and they are so easy, you can't mess them up! Well, maybe you can mess them up if you stick them in the oven and forget you're baking something… so don't do that!
I love love love this recipe. It's my goto for holiday parties and quick get togethers. The whole process, start to eating is about 30 minutes so it's the perfect bite of pie you can share with friends and family for any occasion.
- 2-3 medium sized apples
- Pie crust dough – for one pie – if using pre-packaged, use one of the two dough portions.
- Cinnamon sugar – about 1 cup
I use pre-made pie crust when making these apple pie bites. We've tried making our pie crust and that works well too, but for a super easy treat that is ready in no time, go with the pre-made dough.
- Put about a cup of cinnamon sugar in a bowl. mix my own cinnamon sugar, usually 1 cup of sugar to 2 tablespoons of cinnamon.
- Roll out the pie dough. It helps to add a little flour to the rolling pin. We like to use parchment paper under the dough so it's easy to remove and use.
- Using a knife of a pizza cutter, slice the pie dough into ribbons. You'll want to make strips about 1″ wide and 6″ long. I try to roll the dough out to be about 12″ tall and then however wide so I cut the ribbons length-wise and then run a cut right across the middle width-wise.
- Peel, core and slice apples into bite sizes.
- Stir the apple pie bites in the cinnamon sugar.
- Taking one apple piece at a time, wrap/roll the apple in a piece of dough. Pinch to seal the edge in place.
- Then roll the dough covered apple in cinnamon sugar again. This step is optional.
- Bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes or until golden. The dough should be slightly crisp, like traditional pie crust but not dark brown. When covered with cinnamon sugar it can be a little tricky to tell if the bites are finished or burnt – so leaving one bite not cinnamon coated helps to see the color of the dough.
- Let cool or serve hot.
Optional – make a simple powered sugar and water drizzle and cover the bites. This works really well with the apple bites you make without cinnamon sugar.
Tip: when the apple bites are finished baking, some will have melted cinnamon around them, you can easily break this off to make your bites a little prettier. Plus it gives you a reason to sneak a bite of baked cinnamon sugar!
Enjoy all the bites of apple pie you can sneak… or share.
