What You’ll Need

Here are the ingredients you’ll need for this easy apple pie recipe. See the recipe card located at the bottom of the post for full details and instructions.

  • butter– I generally use salted butter in my recipes, unsalted works just fine too.
  • sliced apples– Green Granny Smith Apples are what I prefer for the recipe.
  • ground cinnamon– Cinnamon pairs so nicely with the apples, the perfect spice.
  • light brown sugar– Make sure your brown sugar is fresh and soft. It should be packed in the cup.
  • Pillsbury biscuit dough– Find refrigerated biscuit dough in the dairy section of the grocery store.
  • egg yolks– Use a bowl to pour whites of the egg and just keep the yolks.
  • salted caramel sauce– Trader Joe’s has a good salted caramel sauce. Any of your favorite will be fine.
  • powdered sugar– Also called confectioners sugar, this sugar helps make the icing.
  • heavy cream– Use heavy cream to make the icing with the powdered sugar.

Best Apples For Apple Pie

  • Granny Smith– Granny Smith apples are one of the most versatile apples you can buy. Their sweet-tart flavor and crisp texture make them an apple that is as wonderful for cooking and baking as it is to eat out of hand.
  • Honeycrisp– Honeycrisp apples have a sweet, subtly tangy flavor well suited for fresh and cooked preparations. Raw Honeycrisp apples are popularly consumed straight, out of hand, mainly served chilled, and are valued for their snappy, juicy flesh.
  • Golden Delicious– Golden Delicious Apples are popular, medium-sized apples with a crisp firm texture and juicy sweet flavor. These tasty apples have a creamy-white interior and a thin yellow peel with light speckles.

How To Make Easy Apple Pie Skillet

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Melt. Melt butter in 12 inch cast iron skillet over medium heat.

Add Apples, Cinnamon and Sugar. Once melted add apples, cinnamon and brown sugar. Stir to combine and let cook for 5 minutes.

Cut Biscuits. Cut each biscuit round into 8 pieces (I keep cutting in half until I get 8 triangles). Place biscuit pieces into pan and gently stir into apple mixture. place half and half, egg yolk, brown sugar and cinnamon into a medium measuring cup, whisking to combine. Drizzle over biscuit mixture. Use a spoon to press biscuits into cream mixture evenly.

Bake for 30 minutes, until set. Remove and drizzle with salted caramel sauce.

Prepare Icing. Place powdered sugar into a small mixing bowl and whisk with cream until creamy and drizzling consistency. Drizzle over top of caramel layer. Serve warm.

    we just moved today and I would love to make these. However, the movers aren’t going to be here until Tuesday can I use a non stick skillet which I just purchased today in place of the cast iron skillet which is packed in boxes some where?

  2. M. OKelley

    Made this skillet of goodness this morning! My boys came in from hunting, and we devoured it!!! My son asked if I made a second one cause this one disappeared. DELICIOUS!!

  3. Annie

    Do you think a cinnamon streusel could be substituted for the caramel or should we just use more icing? Some of my bunch do not like caramel but this looks delicious!

  4. Natasha of Natashaskitchen.com

    Jenny this looks incredible; sticky gooey, soft, melt in my mouth goodness! Pinning 🙂 Thanks so much for sharing!

  5. Jocelyn @BruCrew Life

    Oh, my!!! Now that’s how I want to eat my apple a day! All that drizzle action…yum! And your little helper is so stinking cute 🙂

    1. Rachel

      Yes. I made the apple mixture in a nonstick fry pan, then baked it in a warmed, glass 9×9, baking dish. Turned out great! May not have the crisp-ness of cast iron, but still delicious!

  6. Jennifer @ Show Me the Yummy

    This recipe is pretty much perfection…I love biscuits and there’s salted caramel and that glaze?! Oh my gosh.

  7. Sharana @ Living The Sweet Life Blog

  8. Sues

    Sooo making this for a holiday brunch!! It looks absolutely delectable! (would it be bad if I made it for just myself and my husband??)

  9. Cookbook Queen

    Dying over the drizzle — and your cutie pie assistant! Lucy definitely loves taste testing as well…until she discovers the recipe has nuts in it. Then she’s not so happy. These look perfect!

  10. Taylor @ Food Faith Fitness
