½ cup sugar

2 teaspoons cinnamon

1 roll of refrigerated crescent rolls

3 tablespoons butter, melted

2 medium tart apples, peeled and sliced

 

 

Pecan Butter

 

1 cup chopped roasted pecans

1⁄2-1 tablespoon vegetable oil

1⁄8 teaspoon salt

 

Directions:

 

Apple Bites

 

Preheat oven to 425°. In a small bowl, mix sugar and cinnamon; reserve 1 tablespoon. On a lightly floured surface, unroll crescent rolls. Brush each triangle with 2 tablespoons butter; sprinkle with remaining sugar mixture.

 

Peel and cut each apple into eight wedges; wrap one strip of pastry around each wedge, placing sugared side of pastry against the apple.

 

Place on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Brush tops with remaining butter; sprinkle with reserved sugar mixture. Bake 13-15 minutes or until pastry is golden brown. Serve warm.

 

Pecan Butter

 

Add cooled, roasted pecans to food processor and blend on HIGH until finely ground, 2-3 minutes.   Add vegetable oil 1/2 tablespoons at a time and continue to blend until butter reaches desired consistency.  Add salt to taste.

Place in an airtight container and store in the fridge usually, 1 to 2 months

 

To roast pecans:

 

Place pecans on a greased cookie sheet in preheated 350 degree oven. Spread them out in a thin layer to roast evenly.  Roast for 5 minutes, stir, then roast for another 5 minutes until you can smell them. Be careful not to scorch.  Transfer to a plate for cooling.
