We shared some of this amazingness with my best friend and her husband and they agree, this pie rocks! In fact, I think she is making it this week!
Make this. Invite someone over and eat over coffee (or a bowl of ice cream)!
Skillet Apple Pie
Adapted from Trisha Yearwood's FN recipe
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1 cup light brown sugar
2 refrigerated pie crusts
2 - 21oz. cans apple pie filling*
cinnamon sugar mixture
Heat your skillet on the stove until warm. Start melting butter and let it hang out until completely melted. Add brown sugar to butter. Stir and let it cook for about 2 minutes. Then, take out your refrigerated pie crust and roll it out just a little bit. Lay it on top of the skillet and press it down, like a pie crust. Pour both cans of pie filling into dough. Sprinkle with some cinnamon sugar mixture. Roll out second crust a bit and place carefully on top of apples. Bunch up the sides, like you would a normal pie. It's in a cast iron skillet so aim for a rustic look. Cut a few holes to let the steam vent. Sprinkle more cinnamon sugar mixture over the top. Bake in preheated oven at 400 for 30 minutes.
Best when eaten hot!
* the original recipe called for only 1 can of pie filling. I didn't think it was nearly enough and found the two cans to be perfect.
If you are using a skillet that is larger than 9 inches, you may want to go for a third can of filling, but do the same things, just roll out your crust to fit your pan.
