Mini Austrian Apple Strudel Bites

Last week, my son had an international food fair at his pre-school. This event was one to which I was very much looking forward. Only when I dropped him off at school that morning and noticed all the parents carrying dishes of food, I realized I had completely forgotten about it! I knew that the fair was on the 23rd, only in my mind I still felt like it was the beginning of the month. I mean, where the heck has January gone?? Anyways, I freaked out and ran home, realizing that I was not going to have the time to make a homemade Austrian Apple Strudel from scratch like I had planned. And I didn't want to go buy a strudel that wasn't going to be authentic. So I rummaged through my pantry, trying to collect enough *simple ingredients that I could use to create a fast, kid friendly, and yummy apple strudel. 
Luckily, I had a few basic ingredients that are actually used in an apple strudel and was able to put something together...and quick. The kids and parents loved these treats, and I was happy to have made something from scratch (well, sort of). 
So here is the recipe I used for my Mini Austrian Apple Strudel Bites

Ingredients:
  • 1 Apple
  • 1 tbs Cinnamon 
  • 1.5 tbs Agave 
  • 3 drops Vanilla or Almond Extract (I used Almond but Vanilla taste great, too)
  • 1 can Mini Biscuits (10 count)
  • Raisins 

Cut apple into thin, long slices... not thick cubes 

Add Cinnamon, Agave, Almond or Vanilla Extract, and Raisins, giving the ingredients a good mix
Take out the Biscuits and break them in half (now you have 20 pieces of dough)
Take each piece of dough and press flat and thin
Add a spoonful of apple mixture
Roll dough over, blanketing the apples
Place all 20 rolls onto a lightly greased baking sheet and bake for 13 minutes at 325 degrees. Check on them frequently so they don't burn. Take out and let cool for 5 minutes before moving.
 
These are perfect for an after school snack, potluck, shower, Super Bowl dessert or International Food Fair dish. Enjoy!
