Skillet Apple Pie

Here’s another recipe that just oozes Autumn!  I love the aroma of baking apples and cinnamon, and this pie makes the entire house smell amazing!  Apples are just now coming in season here in the south, and a wonderful friend has given me 2 bags of freshly picked ones!  Mmm!

Another friend mentioned making a skillet apple pie recently. I had never heard of making a pie in a skillet, and she graciously shared her recipe with me.  It is really very easy!  This recipe calls for a 10-inch cast iron skillet.  I don’t have one that large, so I modified the recipe slightly and used my 8-inch one.

4 lbs. apples

1 tsp. cinnamon

3/4 c. sugar

1/2 c. butter

1 c. brown sugar

pie crusts for 10-inch pie

1 egg white

2Tbsp. sugar

Peel apples and cut into slices.  Toss with 3/4 c. sugar and 1 tsp. cinnamon.

Melt butter in a 10-inch cast iron skillet on medium heat.  Add brown sugar and cook, stirring until sugar has melted.  Remove from heat.

Place one pie crust on top of the butter mixture.  Spoon apples on top and cover with remaining crust.

Wisk egg white until foamy. Brush the top crust with the egg white and sprinkle with 2 Tbsp. sugar.  Cut slits in the top.  Bake at 350 degrees for about an hour.

Cool and enjoy!
