Looking for an easy dessert? This apple pie crostata is ready in less than 30 minutes and is the perfect breakfast or dessert.

I have a confession to make.  I LOVE all things bread.  Who doesn’t though right?!  One of my biggest weaknesses are pillsbury biscuits.  My issue is that I always eat too many and those tubes that you buy in the refrigerated section come with six in them, which means that my husband and I have to eat at least two.  In order to remedy this, I stumbled upon Grands Frozen Biscuits.  Now I can just cook as many as I want.  Plus, they work perfectly as a flaky crostata crust.

One of my other obsessions is apple pie.  I literally have at least 8 apple pie recipes on my site, cookies, cupcakes, mini pies, actual pie, bars, energy bites, bread pudding, and muffins.  My girls are just as obsessed as I am so when this crostata was baking during quiet time they both came out asking what that amazing smell was.

All I could do was giggle and tell them to get back into their rooms so that I could top my slice with some french vanilla ice cream and dig in.  What?!  I had to taste test it before I gave it to them.  Let me just tell you that this was worth the mid afternoon calories.  The apple pie filling was light and sweet with a flaky, warm crust.

The best way I can describe this apple pie crostata is that it’s a sweet version of a broccoli cheddar bread bowl.  Just something that you want to dive right into.  Sweet and comforting that you can eat for breakfast or dessert.
