It’s fall! That means apple season! Since we are back in western North Carolina we were able to return to once of our favorite apple picking destinations Sky Top Orchards in Flat Rock, NC. We had a wonderful day in the orchard with friends and family. I came home with lots of apples and found some fun ways to use them up! This Apple Pie Skillet recipe is simple, quick and yummy! Serves enough for 4-6 servings, tasty with ice cream or on its own. Skillet baking at its best!
1 tablespoon cinnamon (actually I am pretty sure I used way more so you can go off your own taste here)
3/4 cup sugar (or less depending on taste and diet)
1/4 cup butter
2 refrigerated pie crusts (a top and bottom)
1 egg white (optional to brush top)
1. Preheat oven to 350º. Peel apples, and cut into wedges. Toss apples with cinnamon and granulated sugar.
2. Melt butter in a 10-inch cast-iron skillet over medium heat; add brown sugar, and cook, stirring constantly, 1 to 2 minutes or until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat, and place 1 piecrust in skillet over brown sugar mixture. Spoon apple mixture over piecrust, and top with remaining piecrust.
3. Whisk egg white. Brush top of piecrust with egg white; sprinkle with granulated sugar. Cut slits in top for steam to escape.
