Cast Iron Skillet Apple Pie
I posted this Skillet Apple Pie recipe last Fall, and figured since apples *should* soon be coming up on the best prices of the year you might enjoy it again! It really is the best apple pie recipe I've ever tried, and the perfect way to put your cast iron skillet to good use if you have one.
I've tried quite a few apple pie recipes over the last few years (once my hubby and I got married and I decided making apple pies was an absolute Fall requirement. . . ), however this one just won the best apple pie ever vote in our house.
The last time we made this, we had it for dessert after dinner, and the next day I was SO tempted to have it for breakfast too. It's THAT good!

We've owned a cast iron skillet for quite some time but I've never taken the time to actually figure out what to make in it. After making this cast iron skillet apple pie recipe, I've decided this might just be what those skillets are made for!
- butter or margarine
- brown sugar
- piecrust (refrigerated)
- egg white
- ice cream (optional)
How do you make apple pie in a skillet?
The best part of this recipe (other than it is DELICIOUS!) is that it can be made right in your cast iron. Gather up your ingredients and preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Start by peeling your apples and cut into wedges. Mix them with cinnamon and sugar. Next, add your butter to the cast iron and cook over medium heat. Add in brown sugar, and cook, stirring constantly for about 1 – 2 minutes (or until the sugar dissolves).
Then, remove the skillet from heat and place one of the pie crusts on top of the brown sugar mixture. Add your apple mixture, and top with the second crust.
Whip your egg white until fluffy, and brush the top of the pie crust. Sprinkle about 2 Tablespoons of sugar onto the top of the crust. Remember to cut a few slits in the top of the pie crust so the pie can vent.
Bake for about an hour to an hour and ten minutes until baked through.
TIP: During the last 10 minutes, you may want to cover the pie with foil to keep the crust from browning too much!
Remove the pie from the oven, allow to cool, and serve with ice cream!
