I love to cook and I love to create. I've been making apple pies for years and its one of my favorite things. You may find bits and pieces of this recipe in some form out on the web, and certainly an apple pie with bacon isn't new to the world. Its simply my approach to an American staple. Usually my pies always involve hand made crusts, but for the sake of simplicity, repeatability and consistency, I decided to use biscuits that are available to everyone. Well, that and the fact I won't share my hand made recipe!
You'll want to adjust the spices to your liking. I prefer a bold and spicy pie and shy away from the super sugary method that seems to have become traditional. I'll include some notes where its applicable.
Hope you enjoy because its always better with bacon!
