Apple Cranberry Cheesecake Pie Bites ~ Pie bites filled with Apple Cranberry Pie Filling and Cheesecake!I was compensated by Lucky Leaf to create this post. All opinions expressed are completely my own.
Oh boy do I have a treat for you today! It’s holiday time and with that comes pies right? I mean that’s a staple in the big old feast that we all sit down and devour. Or sometimes we devour multiple feasts if you are anything like me. Lots of family means lots of feats and I’m not going to lie, a few tighter pants around this time of year!
I’m going to be straight with you. I do not make pie. Well I might, but it’s not something I ever look forward too. Homemade pie crusts? Forget it. I don’t have time for that business! It’s always the frozen ones in the pie plate already done up for me. Pathetic? Maybe since I’m a food blogger, but let’s get real. I’ve never promised hard and time consuming recipes. I’m all for short, easy and impressive.
That’s what this little treat comes into play. Super simple, delicious and ready in a heartbeat! If you are looking for something different these treats are calling your name. Grab a can of Lucky Leaf Apple Cranberry Pie Filling a few other ingredients in in a half hours you have your dessert! How can you not love that? Since these are so yummy I think they belong in the “Lucky 13” recipe contest of course. I might be a bit biased so you need to go ahead and make them for yourselves and decide of course. Guess what?
