Clove Apple Pie Bites

I have seen a lot of recipes for Apple Pie Bites on Pinterest, but they are never the way I love apple pie – with cloves! Cloves is one of my favorite spices to cook with because of what I think of as a “warm” taste. It also smells fabulous! I tweaked the popular recipe to better match my cooking style and am SO happy I did!

I have made these a couple times, using both refrigerator pie crust and Pillsbury crescent rolls. I prefer the pie crust because it has the texture of pie more. However, crescent rolls are still yummy! I made them for a Super Bowl party with the crescent rolls and none came home, which is always my test for whether my friends like a new recipe or not.

Clove Apple Pie Bites
Recipe type: Dessert
  • ½ c. sugar
  • 2 tbsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp ground cloves
  • 1 package refrigerated pie crust (2 crusts) OR 1 Can Pillsbury Crescent Rolls
  • 3 tablespoons melted butter or spray butter
  • 2 medium sized apples of your choice (I use Granny Smiths.)
  1. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees for the pie crust or 325 degrees for the crescents.
  2. Combine the cinnamon and sugar in a small bowl. Set aside a tbsp. of this mixture for the topping.
  3. Cut your apple into wedges.
  4. Roll out your pastry of choice and brush or spray with butter. Then, sprinkle on the cinnamon, sugar, and clover mixture. Then with a pastry knife or pizza cutter like I used, cut the pastry into strips for a total of 16.
  5. Wrap each strip around each apple wedge with the sugar side facing the apple.
  6. Brush the tops with a little more butter and sprinkle with the remaining sugar mixture.
  7. Place your “pies” on a parchment lined baking sheet or cooking rack with cooking spray. I prefer mine on a rack so that the entire pasty gets the nice golden brown.
  8. Bake for 10-13 minutes for both pastries, or until golden.

    So the cloves are whole? I don’t really see them in your picture and I’m not picturing whole cloves in this recipe. I want to try it so I’ll check back for a response. This looks super yummy, and easy to make.
