Trisha Yearwood's Skillet Apple Pie

Skillet Apple Pie with Cinnamon Whipped Cream Recipe  Trisha Yearwood  Food Network

What’s not to love, apples, cinnamon, buttery pie.  And it only takes a few minutes to make.  This is a must-try in my kitchen, maybe it is in yours, too.  

Ingredients

1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
1 cup light brown sugar
2 refrigerated rolled pie crusts, such as Pillsbury
One 21-ounce can apple pie filling
2 tablespoons cinnamon sugar

Cinnamon Whipped Cream:

2 cups whipping cream, chilled
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
4 tablespoons sugar


Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Melt the butter in a 9-inch cast-iron skillet; set aside 1 tablespoon of the melted butter for the top crust. To the melted butter, add the brown sugar and melt them together on medium heat, about 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and line the skillet with one of the pie crusts. Pour the apple pie filling over the crust and sprinkle with 1 tablespoon of the cinnamon sugar. Use the second pie crust to cover the filling. Brush the top with the reserved melted butter, then evenly sprinkle the remaining 1 tablespoon cinnamon sugar on top. Cut vents in the middle of the pie. Bake for 30 minutes. Serve hot, topped with a generous dollop of cinnamon whipped cream.

Cinnamon whipped cream:

Chill a large metal mixing bowl and a wire beater attachment in the freezer for about 20 minutes. Pour the cream, cinnamon and sugar into the cold mixing bowl and beat until soft peaks form, 2 to 3 minutes; the mixture should hold its shape when dropped from a spoon. Don't overbeat or you'll have sweetened butter!

be sure to put a cookie sheet or baking pan under your skillet. when I just made this recipe the butter/brown sugar caramel sauce from under the crust dripped out all over the bottom of my oven

I saw her make this and I tried it. I made it in my 9 in cast iron skillet that is over 40 yrs old and this pie rocks! It was awesome served warm with Vanilla Bean ice cream!

I don't see in your recipe to put the melted butter/brown sugar in the bottom of the iron skillet. I saw Trisha do the demo and I'm fairly sure that is what she did. I made the pie _using fresh peaches (cooked them slightly and added sugar) prior to putting in pie. Very good EXCEPT crust stuck to skillet.

I noticed on Trisha's "bloopers" (which I really enjoy) that as she was tasting her apple pie she made a comment that I'm only eating this to be nice or some such.. Anyway, was that comment because of the calories or the taste of the pie (can't image that the pie was anything but YUMMY)
