One of my favorite desserts is an Apple Pie… but, I wasn’t always a fan. Pies were a “grown-up” dessert and my younger self vowed never to eat them. However, as I matured and my taste buds evolved, I came to love this treasured sweet. The spices mingling with the tart apples and buttery crust makes me fall to my knees… every. time.

So, when Stonyfield asked if I’d like to pair their yummy yogurt with a few spices from Simply Organic, I knew immediately that Apple Pie would somehow shine in the spotlight. This recipe in incredibly simple and fun for the whole family to put together. The ingredients are staples around our house and the come together in minutes. Not only is the dish easy, but what a way to wow your holiday guests and those discerning little judges at the kids’ table!

Apple Pie Yogurt Dip & Bites


    For the Apple Pie Yogurt Dip:
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp ground allspice
  • 1/8 tsp ground cardamom
  • 2 c Stonyfield Organic Smooth & Creamy French Vanilla yogurt
  • For the Apple Pie Bites:
  • 2 sheets puff pastry, thawed
  • 1/2 c granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp ground cinnamon
  • 3 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and sliced
  • 6 tbsp cold unsalted butter, diced


For the Apple Pie Yogurt Dip:

Whisk together all spices, then fold into the yogurt. Stir until completely mixed. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

For the Apple Pie Bites:

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line two sheet pans with parchment paper and set aside. Whisk together the sugar and cinnamon; set aside.

Unfold each sheet of puff pastry onto a lightly-floured surface and cut into long, 1/4" strips. Divide the pastry between the prepared sheet pans and refrigerate while you prepare the apples.

Peel the apples and cut them in half through the stem. Remove the stems and cores with a sharp knife and a melon baller. Slice the apples crosswise in 1/4" thick slices. In a winding motion, wrap each apple slice with a strip of puff pastry, gently pressing to seal the ends. Sprinkle the apples evenly with the cinnamon-sugar mixture and dot them with the butter.

Bake for 20 minutes, until the pastry is golden brown and the edges of the apples start to brown. Remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes before serving.
