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

"What a fun way to make individual apple pie slices. Loved it. Next time I am going to use my own pie crust and think it will even be better."

"We used honeycrisp apples, and tossed the slices in the cinnamon sugar mixture rather than sprinkling it on the dough. We had them with a side of warmed caramel ice cream topping for dipping. Fast, fun, delicious."

"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."
