Apple Pie Crescent Bites

Apple Pie Crescent Bites are quick and easy. These little two-bite-sized treats are best served warm right out of the oven. The sugars caramelize leaving sweet crunchy bits at the edges and soft apple goodness inside. You know I am a huge proponent of eating non-processed foods but here I have made an exception to the rule. The Pillsbury crescent dough makes throwing together a delicious dessert quick, delicious and easy. You could just as easily use your own pie dough and make a little hand pie or replace the crescent dough with puff pastry.

By Heinen's Grocery Store
In 1929, Joe Heinen opened the doors of a small butcher shop on the east side of Cleveland, Ohio, aiming to establish himself as the city’s purveyor of quality meats. As customers came into Heinen’s new shop for their meat purchases, they began asking him to carry groceries as well. Joe added homemade peanut butter, pickles and donuts and by 1933, business had grown enough to include a line of produce and canned goods. Heinen’s Grocery Store was born.
