Skillet Apple Pie

Skillet Apple Pie

I was online and saw a Skillet Peach and Blueberry Pie, however, I’m not a fan of blueberries.  So, I kept searching and found a Skillet Apple Pie that was from Southern Living and I decided to give my new cast iron skillet a try.  It’s something about cast iron cooking that makes you think of old-fashioned cooking. Of course, I  changed up a few things from the recipe, like amount of apples, spices, etc. I can never seem to follow a recipe exactly without making some changes.  This recipe is so simple to make and the crust (hint: store bought) is so good in this pie.  Plus, the tangy granny smith apples pair so well with the brown sugar.  Perfect!

Ingredients:

  • 3 pounds of granny smith apples
  • 3/4 cup of light brown sugar
  • 1 box of pie crusts (15 oz)
  • 3/4 cup of granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 egg (egg white only)
  • 6 tbs butter
  • sugar to sprinkle on pie crust top
  • 10 inch cast iron skillet

Directions:

Skillet Apple Pie

Peel apples.  Cut into small wedge shapes. I cut up the entire 3 pounds of apples. Pour sugar over apples.

Skillet Apple Pie

Add in cinnamon and nutmeg.  Mix together. Set aside in refrigerator.

Place one crust over brown sugar and butter mix.

Pour apples on top of crust.  (I did not pour the juice that was remaining at the bottom of the bowl holding apples.  I didn’t want to have my pie too liquid-like. Even though I cut up the entire 3 pounds of the apples, I didn’t use about 1 1/2 cups of the apples. I didn’t want to overload the pie with too many apples.  You may want to use all of the apples.)

Top with remaining crust.  Cut slits in crust to allow steam to vent.

Whisk egg white from one egg until foamy.  Brush top of crust.  Then, sprinkle a little sugar to coat top.  Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour 15 minutes or until golden brown crust is achieved.  (Amount of time may vary depending upon your oven.) If it starts to brown too much before done, cover edges or top of pie with some aluminum foil.  Allow to cool.  Then, enjoy!

  1. Hi Sharon, is there no baking to this pie? So how did you get the top of the pie to look as though it was baked? That lovely golden caramel baked look. It really looks great & it must taste just as great as it looks. Thanks.

    • Hi Jo-Ann! Sorry about that. For some reason, a portion of the post was deleted due to a plug-in. There is definitely some baking going on here. I updated the post to show that it should be baked for 1 hour and about 15 minutes or less. Keep an eye on it when it nears this time, because you may have to cover with foil if it starts to get too brown. This is a delicious pie. You’ll love it!

  2. I’m so tickled to find this recipe! I love making pies and never thought to make one in a skillet! I’m on a mission now to make this soon! It makes a nice presentation, too!

  3. This looks so good and easy!! Going to try it, thanks for sharing!!
