Real Simple Skillet Apple Pie

This post is sponsored by Walmart.

Fall is all the way here now and that means I can officially make my favorite dessert once a week. Okay, maybe not quite once a week but we do have this skillet apple pie pretty often throughout fall. It’s the one dessert (besides birthday cake) that everyone in my family loves and to be honest, I have yet to meet a friend or family member that has tried it and not loved it. It is like fall in a heavenly, warm bite. It’s also really easy to make. It requires a bunch of apples, butter, store-bought pie crust, sugar, brown sugar, and cinnamon. It comes together really quickly and is the perfect dessert for Sunday dinner.

Before our best friends here moved away, we would always have family dinners together one weekend night. We’d rotate between our three houses, pick the main dish, and we would each bring a side dish. I miss those days so much. Since our friends have moved on, I’ve been making Sunday dinners more special. I try to make meals that are maybe a little more time-consuming on Sundays and there’s always dessert. To make the meal planning easier I lean on my Walmart+ membership. The weekends are always so busy, I know that if I order my groceries from Walmart, I’ll get fresh, quality items without even stepping into the store.

Two great benefits to the Walmart+ membership are that you receive free same-day delivery (restrictions apply) and there are no markups on items. You get the same low prices that you receive in-store when you order online.

You can learn more about how to get a Walmart+ membership and a list of its benefits here.

I’ve gotten into a routine of ordering my weekly groceries on the Walmart app and now it takes me 10 minutes to do my grocery shopping.

It’s so convenient especially when we have a craving for something like skillet apple pie.

Here’s the recipe for my favorite fall dessert: Cast Iron Skillet Apple Pie

Cast Iron Skillet Apple Pie


INGREDIENTS:

  • 6-7 granny smith apples
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 package store-bought pie crusts
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar

DIRECTIONS:

Preheat oven to 350º. Peel apples, and cut into 1/2-inch-thick wedges. To make the apple pie filling, toss apples with cinnamon and 3/4 cup granulated sugar.

Melt butter in a 10-inch cast-iron skillet over medium heat; add brown sugar, and cook, stirring constantly until sugar is dissolved.

Remove the skillet from the heat and place 1 pie crust in the skillet over the brown sugar mixture. Spoon apple mixture over the pie crust, then top with the remaining pie crust.

Whisk the egg white until foamy then brush the top of the pie crust with the egg white and sprinkle the top with 1 tablespoon of granulated sugar. Cut a few slits into the top of the pie for steam to escape.

Bake the pie at 350º for approximately 1 hour or until the pie is golden brown and bubbly. Cool on a wire rack 30 minutes before serving. Serve with vanilla ice cream.
