Easy Skillet Apple Pie

Once in awhile a recipe comes along that is simply out of this world.  And today I have one of those recipes for you.

I mentioned on Friday that I would have an Apple Pie recipe for y'all this week, but this is no ordinary apple pie recipe.  This is the BEST recipe ever!!! 

Mom found this recipe in the September issue of Southern Living (a great magazine btw).  I don't know if they give a Nobel prize for the "Culinary Arts" but if they did I would nominate the person that created this recipe.

Oh, and just a quick warning, I have lots of photos in this post, after the recipe.  When I say "the recipe" does anyone else think of the Baldwin sisters on The Waltons?  Those two sweet spinsters, making moonshine thinking it was "Papa's secret recipe".  Oh well back to "the recipe".

Easy Skillet Apple Pie
2 lb. Granny Smith Apples
2 lb. Braeburn Apples
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter
1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1 14oz package refrigerated piecrusts
1 egg white
2 Tbsp. sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Peel apples, and cut 1/2-inch thick wedges.  Toss apples with cinnamon and 3/4 cup sugar.

Melt butter in a 10-inch cast-iron skillet over medium heat; add brown sugar, and cook, stirring constantly, 1 to 2 minutes or until sugar is dissolved.  Remove from heat, and place 1 piecrust in skillet over brown sugar mixture.  Spoon apple mixture over piecrust, and top with remaining piecrust.  Whisk egg white until foamy.  Brush top of piecrust with egg white; sprinkle with 2 Tbsp. sugar. Cut 4 or 5 slits in top for steam to escape.

Bake at 350 for 1 hour to 1 hour and 10 minutes or until golden brown and bubbly.  Cool on wire rack 30 minutes before serving.

Now for all the pics!
I could eat these alone.  Alone as in just the apples, and alone as in just me.
And yes we did use our apple corer, peeler, slicer.
A cast-iron skillet is very southern.  But what makes it more southern?
I could eat this by myself too!
Starting to look like a pie
Looking more like a pie
