These little bites are fun for kids to make. Simply wrap strips of pastry around apple wedges and shake on some cinnamon-sugar. Then just bake and watch them disappear! —Taste of Home Test Kitchen

"We had a lot of fun rolling this up as a family. We took leftovers to a large gathering and they were quickly gobbled up. So easy - I am no baker and pies intimidate me. This is completely doable for those of us who rely on refrigerated pie crusts! I especially love that I didn't have to peel and cube the apples! Just used my apple wedger, trimmed a little, and then ready to go!"

"Have made these twice, the first time with puff pastry--one sheet for two apples. The second time with the refrigerated pie dough. Yummy either way. I have an issue with the directions for cutting the dough. Refrigerated pie dough comes in two ROUND sheets, so if you cut the pieces about 8" long, you are wasting a WHOLE lot of dough, so I cut the dough into 8 wedges and wrapped one wedge around each slice. The next time I make this, I will cut each round sheet into an 8" square, use the curved edges for four slices and cut the square into 1" slices. This way I can make 3 apples with two sheets of pastry. The puff pastry was delicious as well, but is more expensive than the pie dough. Also the second time I used only 1/4 cup sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon, as the first time I had a lot of sugar left over. I also tossed the apples in the mixture, before wrapping them. Used up the smaller amount."

"Couldn't wait for a visit with 2 of my great grandchildren to try this. Ages 4 and 7, they like apples and this was a big hit. Especially when they got to the cooking. They will want to do it again and the other great grandchildren will want a turn too."

"<p>You will not believe what happened...I goofed up and sprinkled Paprika on the dough instead of Cinnamon inside. My son came up and asked me what I was making and he said, "With Paprika???...I said no, "with Cinnamon"!!...Well, that's not Cinnamon...holy cow!!!! Since it was too late, there was nothing I could do, I sprinkled the Cinnamon on the outside w/ the butter and additional sugar...IT WAS UNBELIEVABLE...they tasted GREAT! So, from now on, I'm going to make half with Paprika and half with Cinnamon ALL THE TIME! Great recipe and easy, fast clean up...but you have to make sure you're wearing the right glasses when sprinkling spices, cause I am not sure it would go as well if you make the same mistake I did with say....Bay seasoning.</p>"
