Scalloped Apples in a Cast Iron Skillet

I posted a Best of the Best recipe for Escalloped Apples.
Our family loves it.
It's almost a comfort food dessert.

I just posted a recipe for Blackberry Cobbler in Cast Iron, so I've been working on an idea for Apples in Cast Iron.
Here's what I came up with.

I adapted the Escalloped recipe and added a topping and put the recipe in a Cast Iron Skillet.
Not bad, Huh?

I hope you try it and like it!

Scalloped or (Escalloped ) Apples in a Cast Iron Skillet!

10 C peeled, cored and roughly cubed Granny Smith Apples ( 7 or more)
1/3 C Sugar
2 TBS Cornstarch
1/4 tsp Cinnamon
1.4 tsp Nutmeg
The Juice and the Zest of 1 Lemon
2 TBS cold butter, cubed + some for the skillet

Place the Apples in a well buttered 10" Cast Iron Skillet Skillet
Drizzle with Lemon Juice and sprinkle with Lemon Zest

Combine in a small bowl:
Sprinkle over the Apples and toss to coat.
Dot the top of the Apples with pieces of the butter.

Prepare the Topping:

Mix together in a bowl:
1C Flour
1/2 C Sugar
1/2 C Light Brown Sugar
1 C Old Fashioned Oats
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp Salt
Zest of 1 Lemon

Cut 1 1/2 Sticks of cold Butter into cubes.
Work the Butter into the dry ingredients with a Pastry Knife or 2 Forks to create a coarse texture.
Sprinkle the Topping over the Apples.

Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.
Serve with Vanilla Ice Cream or Whipped Cream.

Peace in the Kitchen!
