Apple Pie – Cast Iron
If you like apple pie, you are gonna LOVE a cast iron pan apple pie cooked on your grill.
Cast Iron Apple Pie Ingredients:
- 3lbs Granny Smith Apples (cored, halved, each half cut into 6 to 8 pieces)
- 1 boxed frozen pie crust (or make your own)
- 4 Tablespoons of butter + 2 extra Tablespoon of Butter
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 2 Tablespoons lemon juice
- 1 Tablespoon all purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- Pinch of ground clove
- Pinch of ground nutmeg
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1 tbsp milk
- Large dutch oven or sauce pan (big enough to stir your apples)
- 10” Cast Iron Pan
Cast Iron Apple Pie Directions:
Place apple pieces in a large mixing bowl. Drizzle lemon juice over the apples. Sprinkle the sugar over the apples. Mix well to coat apple pieces with sugar and lemon juice and let stand for 15-20 minutes.
Melt four tablespoons of butter in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add the apples and toss continuously for 8-10 minutes until the apples become soft, but not too soft or your filling will be mush. Using a colander, drain the apples and capture the liquid in a mixing bowl. Return the captured liquid to the skillet with an additional tablespoon of butter. Add in the flour, cinnamon, clove, and nutmeg and whisk until no chunks of flour remain. Add the apples back to the skillet, mix well, remove from heat, and let cool completely.
Grease the bottom of a 10″ cast iron skillet with a tablespoon of butter then line with one of the pie crusts. Add the cooled apple mixture to the cast iron pan. Place the remaining pie crust on top of the apple mixture and mold the edges of the crusts together. Brush the top of the pie crust with the egg wash of milk and beaten egg.
