Skillet Apple Pie

Ingredients:

  • 6 cooking apples (I used granny smith)
  • 1 1/2 cups of apple cider
  • 2 tablespoons of maple syrup
  • 2 tsp corn starch
  • 1/4 tsp of cinnamon
  • 1 prepared pie crust

Directions:

Cut your apples into wedges and add 2 tbsp of butter to a skillet on medium-high heat.  Brown apples a bit in your pan.

Stir together the apple cider and cornstarch before adding to the skillet or you will get lumps and bumps. Let that simmer.  Add your maple syrup and cinnamon. Stir.

Now roll out your pie crust and top off  your skillet with it. Cut a few slits into it. I brush the top of mine with milk or butter and sprinkle sugar on it.

I know it's not pretty but it's rustic! That's my story and I am sticking to it.

Place your skillet into a 425 degree oven for 30 minutes till crust is golden and enjoy!

To get a great flaky pie crust use ice-cold water and cold butter. Handle as little as possible. It is the chunks of fat distributed throughout the dough that makes your pie crust flaky and tender :)
