Skillet Apple Pie

By: Marge Perry & David Bonom

  • Yield:

    4-6 servings


2 tablespoons unsalted butter
5 golden delicious apples, peeled, cored, and sliced
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon vanilla extract

3/4 cup all-purpose flour
2/3 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup old fashioned oats
1/3 cup pecans, coarsely chopped
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons unsalted butter


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. 
  2. Make the filling, melt the butter in a 10.25-inch skillet over medium heat. Add the apples and cook, stirring occasionally, until slightly softened, about 6 to 7 minutes; remove from the heat. Combine the granulated sugar, brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, and salt in a bowl; stir into the apples. Stir in the vanilla extract. 
  3. While the apples cook make the topping. Combine the flour, sugar, oats, pecans, cinnamon, and salt in a bowl. Add the butter and work it into the flour mixture with your fingers until you can form it into clumps when squeezed. Sprinkle the topping evenly over the apples. 
  4. Bake in the center of the oven until the top is lightly browned and the filling is bubbly, about 33 to 35 minutes. Cool 10 minutes before serving.
