Homemade apple pie with a flaky, buttery crust and perfectly seasoned apples baked in a cast iron skillet.
Preheat oven to 400
Combine flour and cubed butter together cutting-in with a pastry blender until you have tiny bits of butter with a crumb like consistency. Add water slowly, little bits at a time, until the flour and butter hold together but are not sticky. If you add too much water and the mixture sticks to your hand slowly add little bits of flour until desired consistency is reached. Divide into two sections. Roll out both sections into a flat circle. Place the bottom layer in the cast iron skillet. Set aside.
Peel, core, and slice apples into thin slices
Add all dry ingredients: sugar, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt to apples and mix well.
Pour apple mixture into prepared skillet with bottom layer of crust.
Dot the apple mixture with small portions of the 2 Tbsp. of butter.
Add top crust to top of pie mixture, crimping around the edges. Sprinkle with sugar and cut 3-4 small slits in top for ventilation.
Bake in over for 50 minutes.
