Apple Pie

I mentioned earlier that I've compiled a list of about 15 recipes from some old Cooking Light magazines that my sister gave me. I've made a few of those recipes already with a lot of success but last weekend I was craving apple pie--and not the light version either. With both brown sugar and white sugar, flour and butter, this was nowhere near "light". But it's so good. And with ice cream? So very good.

Disclaimers: 1)My skillet is only 8 inches across which is only big enough for 3 apples. 2)There's no bottom crust so it's not really going to hold it's shape. 3)I'm fully aware that the picture above may not look appetizing so some but trust me, it is!

Apple Pie

3 Granny Smith apples, peeled and cored, cut into quarters THEN cut the quarters into quarters
1/3 cup sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1 TBS flour
1/8 tsp salt

1/2 cup sifted flour
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup butter

Combine all ingredients for the filling and pour into a greased skillet or baking dish. Blend all ingredients for the crust together with a pastry blender and sprinkle over apple pie filling. Bake at 350 degrees until the crust is brown--about an hour.
