Apple meringue pie suggestions

The crust is not your typical pie crust, but rather a crumbly cocoa-infused par-baked crust. It’s rich and sweet, just what a pie needs. The apples like to be gently cooked until they are tender and delicious. To make it taste more like a festive apple crumble, add more allspice and cinnamon. Make lovely meringue forms on top of the pie using a piping bag. Decorate with cherries or any other fruit that looks and tastes good to you.

If you like baking, chances are you are also creative. Combine classic desserts to make this lovely apple meringue pie for your next tea party.
