3-Ingredient Cheddar & Apple Bites
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Lightly coat a mini muffin tin with cooking spray.Advertisement
Unroll pie crust onto a clean surface. Roll the dough into a circle about 12 inches in diameter. Cut 24 2-inch circles out of the dough with a biscuit cutter, rerolling the scraps if needed. Place the dough circles in the prepared muffin cups, gently pressing the dough into the bottom and sides. Prick the dough with a fork. Bake until lightly browned, 5 to 6 minutes.
Add 1 teaspoon cheese to each cup, then top with 1/4 teaspoon apple butter. Bake until the cheese has melted, 3 to 5 minutes more. Let cool for 10 minutes. Top each bite with a few apple pieces, if desired.
Tip: Look for prerolled pie dough (usually a package of 2 crusts) in the refrigerated case at the grocery store. If you have time and enjoy making pastry, you can make your own crust.
