Skillet Apple Pie
Why This Recipe Works
For an everyday dessert, a good skillet apple pie recipe should take a no-frills approach. We made our fruit filling juicy and flavorful by combining apples with cider that we thickened with cornstarch and sweetened with maple syrup. To make sure that the apples were cooked by the time the pastry was golden, we caramelized them on the stovetop before topping them with the pastry and baking the pie in the oven.
