Cast Iron Apple Pie Recipe

Mmmmm...  You're gonna love this one! 
 
It's a recipe from my sweet friend, Christal.  (I only changed a couple of things.)  She bakes this recipe using a cast iron skillet, but warned sometimes it bubbles over.  My skillet isn't very big, so I chose my #10 Dutch Oven, but did not use the lid.  Whatever size skillet or Dutch oven you prefer, lining it with foil will quicken cleaning time.
 
 
 
 
1 Stick Butter (1/2 cup)
1 cup Brown Sugar
2 Apples, coarsely chopped
2 Pie Crusts
1 Can Apple Pie Filling, 21 ounces
1 Cup Pecans
About 2 Tablespoons of Cinnamon Sugar
 
 


In the cast iron item of your choice ;-) melt butter on stove top.  Add brown sugar and coarsely chopped apples.  Cook on medium heat for about 2 minutes stirring occasionally.  Remove from heat.  With a slotted spoon, scoop out the apples, but leave the buttery caramel goodness.




Place one pie crust into the bottom of your skillet.  Let it swim in all that yummy butter and cover it with the apple pie filling.


 
 
Add pecans and sprinkle with about 1 tablespoon cinnamon sugar.
 
 


Layer the chopped apples next.


 
 
Cover with the second pie crust, cut vents, and sprinkle with remaining cinnamon sugar.  Bake at 400 for 30 minutes until crust is golden brown.
 



Christal serves her pies with vanilla ice cream.  We had ours all by itself.  Then we took a nap.  ;-)

This is one scrumptious apple pie!  I hope you enjoy this recipe!

What have you been baking?
