  • 2 Cups All Purpose Flour
  • 7/8 Cups Unsalted Butter cut into small cubes
  • 1/2 Cups Cold Water

Pie Filling

  • 7 Apples Golden Delicious are our favorite
  • 1 Cup Sugar
  • 2 Tbsp All Purpose Flour
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • Dash Nutmeg
  • Dash Salt
  • 2 Tbsp Butter


  1. Preheat oven to 400

Prepare Crust

  1. 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.

Prepare Filling

  1. Peel, core, and slice apples into thin slices

  2. Add all dry ingredients: sugar, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt to apples and mix well.

Assemble Pie

  1. Pour apple mixture into prepared skillet with bottom layer of crust.

  2. Dot the apple mixture with small portions of the 2 Tbsp. of butter. 

  3. 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.


  1. Bake in over for 50 minutes.
