Rolling pins and aprons aren’t for everyone. But who doesn’t occasionally crave baked goods with homemade, fresh-from-the-oven flavor—especially this time of year, when the kitchen seems cozier and the scent of cinnamon just belongs in the air? Luckily, not all desserts require fancy gadgets, getups or culinary expertise. These apple pie bites boast bakery taste yet are easy enough for anyone to make.
