Skillet Apple Crisp Pie
I was craving apple pie and I did not have any fresh apples.  I did have a couple cans of apple pie filling though.  I am not a real big fan of the big ol apple chunk slices in can filling.  I emptied out the filling onto my cutting board and sliced all the apples in half… there that was better!  No more big chunks and the apple slices now looked like the thickness I would cut them if I was using fresh apples.  

I like the glaze and taste of apple pie filling but do think it is somewhat bland so to enhance the apple pie flavor I added 2 teaspoons of apple pie spice and 2 tablespoons of sugar.

Gave it a taste and ok… this might work.

Lately I have been all about my 10 inch cast iron skillet so why not give a skillet pie a try.  It worked perfectly and the pie came out of the pan easy with no mess.

I named the pie Apple “crisp” pie because the flavor reminded me more of apple crisp rather than an apple pie.  The filling was more runny like crisp is rather than a real defined slice when I put the slice on my plate.  Bill thought the same thing, he usually puts his apple pie in a bowl and pours milk over it but with this he said it needed ice cream because it was more like eating apple crisp.

Skillet Apple Crisp Pie

1 store bought pie crust
2 cans apple pie filling
2 teaspoons apple pie spice
2 tablespoons sugar

1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup chopped pecans ( I used glazed pecans)
1 package (single server) cinnamon spice oatmeal ( or 1/4 cup quick oats)
3 tablespoons cold butter

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Spray 10 inch cast iron skillet with cooking spray, set aside

Pour pie filling out onto a cutting board and slice the apple chunks in half.  Scrape all the sliced pie filling into a bowl and add apple pie spice and sugar.  Stir well.

Put pie crust into pan and flute the edges.  Pour the pie filling into the crust.


Cut cold butter into chunks and place in a bowl.  Add the remaining ingredients and cut the butter in with a pastry knife or you can also use 2 forks.  Mixing as you go to make a crumb topping.

Spread crumb topping over top of the pie.  Cover with foil and place in oven.  Bake covered for 15 minutes.  Remove foil cover and bake for 10 minutes and then place foil cover back on for the remaining 15 minutes.  Total bake time for mine was 40 minutes.
