{Upside Down Apple Skillet Pie}

Saturday, September 25, 2010

In honor of Fall we decided to kick off the weekend with an upside down apple skillet pie. Because we think anything baked in cast iron tastes UHMAZING. We also think the uglier the pie the better it tastes.

Serving Size: 2 (We used a small 6" cast iron skillet given to us by our Papa).

2 large granny smith apples (pealed and thinly sliced)
1/2 stick butter
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tbs flour
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp lemon juice
pinch of salt
sugar for dusting
1 Pillsbury refrigerated pie crust (comes in packs of 2)

1. Preheat oven to 425° and set aside pie crust to thaw.

2. Combine butter, brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, lemon juice, and sliced apples in a medium bowl. Mix well to coat.

3. Heat a 6-inch cast iron skillet over medium high heat and add pie filling. Once the mixture begins to bubble, spoon off a tablespoon of the liquid and set aside.

4. Next, unroll the pie crust over the skillet (we cut ours down slightly to fit). With a wooden spoon push down the edges of the crust into the pie. Cut steam slits in the crust, brush with the reserved liquid, and sprinkle with sugar.

5. Bake for 20 minutes or until the crust is golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool for 1 hour before serving.

Serve with a scoop of Blue Bell Vanilla Ice Cream and you'll make this every chance you get!

"Good apple pies are a considerable part of our domestic happiness."
- Jane Austen

Looks delicious. Wish I'd been home when you posted this. I might have had to crash the party. :-) BTW, saw one of your best friends at Pei Wei this evening. Always good to run into the awesome Liz Casteel. Half expected you two to be somewhere nearby since at least half the time that I see her, she's with you all!

Ooh, I think you would LOVE a skillet cookie. Here's what we do: spread a tube of premade cookie dough in a skillet and cook it in the oven. When it's done set it on the table on hot pads. Unload a whole carton of ice cream on top and spread it as fast as you can. When top it all with a can of whipped cream. Then call your friends around quick and everyone dive in with their own spoon. Part of the excitement is that you have to eat it quickly before the ice cream melts! Mmmm… so yummy. BTW, we've rocked your recipe for Grilled Hobo Fruit Packs of Awesomeness 2x so far. A-mazing! PS. I love your blog. You guys are so sweet.
