Grandma's Iron Skillet Apple Pie
Recipe type: Pie
Cuisine: American
This three-layer apple pie is a Southern favorite!
  • ½ cup butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 5 Granny Smith apples -- peeled, cored, quartered, and thinly sliced
  • 3 (9 inch) refrigerated prerolled pie crusts
  • 1 cup white sugar, divided
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon, divided
  • ¼ cup white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon butter, cut into small chunks
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Place ½ cup butter into a heavy cast iron skillet, and melt butter in the oven. Remove skillet and sprinkle with brown sugar; return to oven to heat while you prepare the apples.
  3. Remove skillet, and place 1 refrigerated pie crust on top of the brown sugar. Top the pie crust with half the sliced apples. Sprinkle apples with ½ cup of sugar and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon; place a second pie crust over the apples; top the second crust with the remaining apples, and sprinkle with ½ cup sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon. Top with the third crust; sprinkle the top crust with ¼ cup sugar, and dot with 1 tablespoon of butter. Cut 4 slits into the top crust for steam.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until the apples are tender and the crust is golden brown, about 45 minutes. Serve warm.
