While I was checking out one of my favorite food blogs, I found a quick and easy finish for dh's birthday dinner: Apple Bundles. Dine and Dish featured this fall inspired recipe recently and I knew dh would enjoy it. This one is easy to make. You simply roll up apple slices in pre-made bread stick dough and top with cinnamon and sugar. Pop them in the oven and dessert is ready. Next time I think I'd toss the apple slices with the cinnamon-sugar mixture to add a little delicious gooey-ness that's missing here.
