Apple Skillet Pie

If I ask my son Rick what kind of pie he wants, he will always say Apple, and of course I will make it for him. I remember my Grandmother making the best apple pies and cobblers and then she would always pour a little fresh cream in the bottom of the plate before she served it, and oh my it was so good. I love this recipe for Skillet Pie and have used it for years, I think it is a recipe that has changed very little as it has been handed down in our family. I am excited to share it with you today and sure hope you enjoy it!

Apple Skillet Pie
Miz Helen's Kitchen
Ingredients
2 - 9 inch pie crust
8 cups peeled, cored and sliced apples (I use Red Delicious)
2 tablespoons lemon juice
3/4 cups sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon allspice
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons flour
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1/2 cup apple juice
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup milk
6 tablespoons course finishing sugar
Directions
Peel, core and slice the apples, then toss them in the lemon juice.
Mix the sugar cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, flour, cornstarch and salt together, then mix with the apples.
Pour the apple mixture into a large sauce pan and add the apple juice and water.
On medium heat, cook the apple mixture until the liquid begins to thicken and the apples are slightly tender, stirring constantly, so that the mixture does not burn to the bottom of the pan.
Remove from the heat and set aside to allow to cool for 45 minutes to 1 hour.
Make two 9 inch pie crust.
Place one of the 9 inch pie crust into a iron skillet.
Pour the cooled apple mixture into the un cooked pie crust.
Top the apple mixture with the other 9 inch un cooked pie crust, crimp the edges and make a vent hole in the center.  Brush the top with milk and sprinkle with course finishing sugar.
Bake in a 425 degree oven for 10 minutes. Reduce the heat to 375 degrees and bake for 40 minutes.
The wonderful thick sauce will come on the top of the pie crust, ( that's ok), my aunt said that's what makes it good.
Let this pie cool for at least 2 hours before slicing.  If you cut it while hot it won't hold together in a slice.  However I have known folks to eat it with a spoon!
Enjoy!

  1. This sounds so good, Miz Helen! I like the idea of cooking the apples beforehand because they take forever to get tender otherwise. I'd sure love a slice of your pie and I'll bet your son Rick was happy with this one. It sounds so nice and spicy. Enjoy your week.
