I am so excited to have partnered with Flatout Flatbread® to bring you this belly warming recipe.

I truly love all things apple pie inspired from Apple Pie Bread to  Apple Pie Egg Rolls!  The combination of cinnamon and sweet tart apples is the epitome of fall and such a classic; it adorns every holiday table if I have any say.

These Apple Pie Bites are as tasty as they are easy!  They have a deliciously crisp cinnamon sugar shell with a quick and easy apple pie inspired filling.  All of the delicious apple pie flavors you can’t get enough of in an easy hand held bite!

To make these extra quick and easy, I start with a simple crust made from Flatout Artisan Thin Pizza Crust. While these pizza crusts make the most delicious thin crust pizzas, they’re absolutely perfect as a dessert crust too!  You can find the Flatout Artisan Thin Pizza Crusts near you here, they’re perfect for topping with sweet or savory!

We cut them out using a 3.25″ round cookie cutter.  This makes them the perfect size shell in a regular muffin tin. While they will actually fit into a mini muffin pan, it makes them difficult to fill so I’d suggest using a standard pan.

Be sure to keep the extra little leftover bits of pizza crust!  We put them into a freezer bag with any leftover melted butter and the extra cinnamon sugar, gave it a shake and baked them at 375 degrees for about 10 minutes.  They make delicious cinnamon sugar crisps!

I tend to prefer using Granny Smith apples for these Apple Pie Bites as they’re slightly tart and don’t get mushy with cooking.  Of course you can use any type of apple, the key is making sure you don’t overcook them.

One thing I really love about this recipe is that it’s perfect for feeding a crowd as it can be made ahead of time!

The cinnamon sugar shells can be made up to 5 days before serving, cooled completely and sealed in an airtight container.  As for the filling, I often make it the day of serving and leave it at room temperature until everyone is ready to eat.  It’s best if the shells are filled just before serving.

  1. I used flour tortillas and canned pie filling. Absolutely good. only because that’s what I had. Scratch is even better!

  2. Question: Apple Pie Bites
    Recipe says ‘ 1/2 cup butter plus 2 Tbsp, divided”. I assume there is some for cinnamon shells and some for filling. How much butter do you put in filling and how much for shells. Read it through a few times and can’t interpret directions – in middle of making now. Thanks

    1. Hi Linda, sorry about the confusion. 1/2 cup of butter is for the shell while the 2 tablespoons is for the filling. The recipe has been updated to reflect this.

  3. Living in Canada we do not get the same products in our stores so I do not know what this flat bread is like. Do you think I could substitute flour tortillas instead? From the video it looks like it might be about the same thickness.
