Crispy Apple Pie

I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but recently I’ve been craving the biscuit-crust type of desserts. First the key lime pie, then the banoffee pie and then the caramel cheesecake. Well, guess what? Today I’m sharing with you yet another biscuit-crust pie recipe! And this time it’s for this crispy apple pie!

..I just really really like biscuit crust, okay?! 😆 Is it just me, or does anyone else also like that type of crust best? The crunchy and buttery flavor makes it my favorite out of all the pie crusts.

Okay, enough about the amazing crust 😅 Let’s move onto the actual pie. I called this recipe „crispy apple pie” because that’s exactly what it is. Not only do you have a crunchy layer of crushed biscuits as the base, but also a yummy crumbly topping! Serve this warm, with some vanilla ice cream and you’ve got yourself a delicious dessert!
