Apple Bites

Update:  This recipe has been so popular with my friends and family… everyone loves it!  My friend Melissa made a shortcut using canned fried apples with cinnamon, drizzled them with caramel when they came out of the oven and topped with vanilla ice cream.  I tried this version and it was also DELICIOUS!
