There’s nothing I love more than an apple pie or apple cobbler, but it always seems unreasonable to make an entire pie just for myself.

Every time I make a pie, I end up with way too much left over. Plus, I always find myself wishing I could take my pie on the go — but eating apple pie in the car isn’t exactly the best idea.

That’s why this apple blintz recipe is perfect for anyone who is always running around — it’s a perfect breakfast, snack, or just a sweet treat to keep you going through that 2 p.m. slump.

Instead of buying an apple pie from a fast food joint, try making these apple blintzes at home! Like a turnover, these blintzes are a perfect pouch filled with apples.

The recipe is easy and quick, and it’s the perfect way to eat a warm apple treat without having to worry about making a big mess.

Once you get a bite of these sweet, gooey apple blintzes, you’ll never go back. The crust is flaky and buttery, and the filling is deliciously satisfying.
