Cast Iron Skillet Bottomless Apple Pie

My hubby has been after me to make a dessert that isn't hand held and doesn't contain chocolate.  I got up this morning and decided it was time to make one just for him.

I saw a recipe for an apple pie that Sandra Lee made and I adapted mine from hers.  Well, Honey, Here is your dessert!  You see that slice missing (much more gone now) ...You know who ate it, don't you?  Yep.....<3 and hUgs!

Cast Iron Skillet Bottomless Apple Pie

6 to 8 apples, half diced and half sliced, thinly
1/2 cup mountain dew, apple cider or apple juice
1/2 to 1 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 stick butter or margarine
2 to 4 tablespoon cornstarch, start with two
1 tablespoon water or soda,  just enough to mix cornstarch with
1 prepared pie crust

Preheat oven to 400 degrees
Spray 10" Cast Iron Skillet

Peel and slice 4 apples, thinly.
Put sliced apples and soda in a bowl and sit aside.
Peel and dice 4 apples
Place in sauce pot
Add brown sugar, starting with 1/2 cup...add more later if needed
Add 2 teaspoon cinnamon
Add butter.

Add liquid from sliced apples...saving slices for later.
Bring to boil until it starts to thicken.

Make slurry with 2 tablespoons cornstarch and liquid
Pour into boiling apples and stir, continually

Make more slurry if needed.  It needs to be thick. 
Once it is as thick as you like it....Add the sliced apples.

Spray skillet and heat on medium high heat on stove
When hot,  add apple mixture

Once it starts to bubble, place pie crust over top.
Pushing the ends down.  Not to hard though, trust me on this one.  ;D
You can brush top with apple juice concentrate and sprinkle with sugar..I didn't.
Cook at 400 degrees for 15 minutes, turn around.
Cook for another 10 to 20 minutes..Until crust is brown.
As always..My oven cooks different than yours.  Adjust times accordingly. 
Enjoy!  <3 and HUGs!

Note...the 10" skillet makes the pie kind of thin.  Next time I may double the recipe to make a thicker pie.

Mine was a little juicier than I wanted.  I didn't follow my own instructions. ;D

This is a wonderful idea. I love anything that I can use a cast iron pan for.

I love not having a bottom crust. We are not big crust eaters.
