So, it isn't an apple crisp. It isn't an apple pie. I love both of those desserts, here is a really awesome variation that brings both together.
What is different about this dessert, is the dough, the dough is butter based and a tad sweet. It is easy to make also, it is a tad different to work with and roll out, sometimes more flour is needed, but not to much or the dough will harden. Anyhow, it is apple season, so not much sugar is used.
