Caramelized Apple & Ham Cinnamon Bites

Day 21 of 25 Days of Christmas My Urban Oven Style!

I missed you the last 2 days. I apologize for missing Day 19 and 20.  With prepping for Christmas and having family in town, I needed to take a break for 2 days.

I still haven’t finished my Christmas shopping and present wrapping and my baking and cleaning my house and feeling any bit ready for Christmas.


I have to say that I might be a little bit stressed today and have been running around like a chicken with my head cut off.

This goes back to the to my whole theory on why I prefer Thanksgiving over Christmas. Less stressful of a holiday.

I have been thinking about making these as an appetizer for almost 3 years now.  The flavor profile concept was there, but the execution was not there.

Remember when I told you about how I had wanted to enter the Pilsbury Contest a few years ago? This is a twist on the recipe I wanted to submit for that contest. I had finally decided I couldn’t hold the recipe to myself anymore,

I tested it out on a few friends, and they all loved them. The best part, was that they were quick and easy to assemble.


I hope you test these out on Christmas or for a New Years gathering!
