Who’s ready for Thanksgiving?! We have been DIYing like mad and can’t wait to host the ultimate Friendsgiving. (Details coming soon!) We’ve been in the kitchen testing out desserts and let me tell you, Apple Pie Bites don’t stay on the counter for long. These take about 15 minutes to make and are so much easier than baking a whole pie.

You probably already have most of these ingredients in your kitchen—think apples, butter, cinnamon, and brown sugar. Another thing we learned while making these? Crescent rounds are a super yummy alternative to crescent rolls. I never even knew they existed!

What are you bringing to the table this Thanksgiving? If you haven’t decided yet, we can’t recommend these enough. These will fly off the table in no time. Have a recipe you think we should know about? Tell us in the comments below.
