It’s apple time! I know everyone is still in a pumpkin haze but throw me an apple or two – ok? The thing I love about apple pie is that I have yet to meet a person who truly hates it. I know, as soon as I say this I’m going to get a bunch of comments about how you all hate apple pie BUT it seems to pretty a pretty solid contender as a crowd pleaser in my family. Of course, the one thing I don’t like about making pie is always having to make the pastry. Yes, I know it’s easy BUT sometimes I just don’t want too. There is no reason other than that I’m lazy #truth.

That’s where my true love Athens Foods come into play. They make these adorable Athens Mini Fillo Shells that are seriously the biggest help in the kitchen. I have used them for everything from appetizers (seriously, these sausage spinach mushroom phyllo bites are the BOMB! ) to delicious no-bake desserts (try my chocolate drizzled pecan pie bites) And now I’m back at it with the dessert game! As I stated I have mad love for all things apple and even more so when those apples are paired with brown sugar, apple cider, and vanilla bean paste! If you have never used vanilla bean paste before I BEG you to pick up a bottle. It’s like vanilla extract but 1000% times better. Plus you get to see all those pretty little vanilla bean flecks in your finished product. I struggled with what to top my vanilla bean apple pie phyllo bites with but in the end, I went with whipped cream. You get so much crunch from the Athens Mini Fillo Shells I didn’t want to over shine that with more crunchy topping. PLUS everyone loves whipped cream – am I right?

I also happen to think a few tiny scoops of ice cream on top would be beyond delicious. You know, since ice cream and apple pie is basically BFF’s.

    Oh, I absolutely LOVE the sound of these! Like you, I love pie, but making the pastry is such a pain, so I love shortcuts like these. I can also see my family going bonkers over these phyllo bites, too, soooooo… 😀

    My brother hates MOST desserts, but he LOVES apple pie, so I agree – it’s definitely the great equalizer! Love these little pie bites, so much better for getting to try more pie flavors on Thanksgiving!
