  • Stir brown sugar into melted butter and place back in oven until bubbling, about 5 minutes.

  • Gently lay 1 pie crust on top of butter-brown sugar mixture, without pressing crust down. Arrange apple slices on top of pie crust.

  • Mix white sugar, cinnamon, and flour together in a bowl; sprinkle over apple slices. Place the remaining pie crust over apple slices, making slits in the top crust for ventilation. Seal the 2 crusts together.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until top crust is lightly browned, about 45 minutes.

The only change that I made was to sprinkle both white and brown sugar on the top crust with the dotted butter. It is the best pie that I have ever made! My husband said that it was so good that he could have eaten it without vanilla ice cream (that would have been a first). I will definitely make this again, and again. Read More

I made with a few times with adjustments and each time pie was wonderful. I mixed my sugar seasoning mix with apples before putting over pie crust. (seasons 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon, 1/2 tsp nutmeg, 1/8 tsp cloves, 1 tsp Apple Pie Spice) Next Time I will add 1-2 more apples. My skillet is bigger than 9" so I gently stretched the 9" room temp pre made pie crusts with rolling pin just a touch so I had a little edge to crimp and seal. No big deal if you don't have enough pie crust to seal. The yummy sugar butter mix just oozes up over the top crust when it bakes but regardless put aluminum foil at bottom of oven to catch bubble over just in case. I also had to bake mine longer than the recommended 45 min at 350. Read More

What a great idea to bake this in a cast iron skillet. I always bake my fruit pies till they bubble so the skillet depth keeps the pie from overflowing. My daughter in law made this first but found it too sweet. So I reduced both the brown sugar and the white sugar by half. (I did have sweet apples tho). I will definitely make this again and next time will reduce the butter by half. Will let you know how it turns out! ps: don't expect to even find that bottom crust after covering it with apples.

Husband loved it, went back for seconds imediatly. He said if an apple pie and a cinnamon roll had a baby this would be it. We like how the bottom almost crystalisezes. Super easy. I was making pie because I had a bag of apples that were to tart to eat plain so I made minor adjustments to make up for that. I added 1/8 tsp ground cloves and 2 dashes allspice to flour mixture. I later realized I added 2 tablespoons flour instead of 2 teaspoons like recipie said. (woowps, but still we Loved it). And like another reviewer said i tossed the apples in the flour mixture then added to crust. Everything else the same. Will for sure make again. Read More

Easy and by far the best! I wasn't able to connect the two crusts(top to bottom) but it was still awesome! It didn't come out of skillet in slices more like globs of Apple pie like greatness. Made this twice and still getting requests for it! Read More
