Apple Bundles from Dine and Dish

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.

Apple Bundles
Recipe from Pampered Chef Delightful Desserts

2 lg apples
1 pkg refrigerated bread stick dough — 11 oz
1 med orange
2 tbsp butter, melted
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp cinnamon

Preheat oven to 375F. Peal, core, and slice apples. Cut slices in half. Unroll dough; separate into 8 breadsticks. Cut each in half crosswise to make 16 strips. Place 3-4 apple slices at the end of each piece of dough; roll up. Arrange bundles in greased 7×11″ pan. Zest 1 t. orange rind, set aside. Juice orange. Pour orange juice into bottom of pan (but not over bundles). Brush bundles with butter. Mix zest, sugar and cinnamon; spoon over bundles. Bake 25-30 min. or until golden brown.

So glad you tried them and I think your idea of tossing the apples is a great one!

WHen is your DH's birthday? My hubby's birthay is today! These look so yummy! We are going out to dinner tonight, but maybe for another night, or just for a snack.
