Cast Iron Skillet Apple Pie

Wow, I just saw this recipe on an episode of Trisha Yearwood's Southern Kitchen. I love cooking in Cast Iron and I love the simplicity of this great dessert. This is a great pie if you need a last minute dessert. Keep all of the ingredients on hand to make it on the spur of the moment.

Here's what you'll need:
1 - 9" Cast Iron Skillet
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

8 Tbs  (1 stick) Butter
1 C Brown Sugar
2 Pillsbury refrigerated Pie Crusts
1 - 21oz. Can of Apple Pie Filling
2 TBS Cinnamon Sugar, divided

In the skillet on medium high heat:
Melt the Butter.
Reserve 1 TBS of the melted Butter and set aside for brushing the crust.
Brown Sugar.
Heat, stirring constantly for 2 minutes.
Remove from heat.
Line the pan with one of the pie crusts.
Pinch and bunch the edges of the crust to make it look rustic.
Pour the Pie Filling into the crust.
Sprinkle with 1 TBS of the Cinnamon Sugar.
Cover with the second Pie Crust.
Pinch and bunch the edges of the Pie Crust to make it look rustic.
Brush the crust with the remaining melted butter.
Sprinkle with remaining 1 TBS of Cinnamon Sugar.
Cut vents in the center of the crust to vent it
Bake for 30 minutes.
Serve warm.

Peace in the Kitchen!
