Skillet Apple Pie Biscuits
The apple pie smell wafting through the house is enough reason as any to make this easy skillet apple pie biscuits recipe, especially if you don’t have the time to make a proper pie. This fast apple pie recipe is simply a matter of topping homemade or pre-made biscuits with apple pie filling, then drizzling with a classic glaze of powdered sugar and milk. Melissa, the author of ‘Melissa’s Southern Style Kitchen’, has created the most versatile apple pie recipe ever and gives the home cook several options for how to make her cast iron skillet apple pie dessert. First, she allows you to make her homemade biscuit recipe or insists that a store-bought version would work well if you are in a hurry. Also, as an alternative to using apple pie filling, Melissa provides notes on how to make your own when apples are in season. Now you will have to make this baked apple recipe with its baked apple-topped biscuits and sweet icing glaze.
Easy apple recipes are always wonderful to have for when apple season comes around, especially if you have a full bushel of apples in your pantry that you are hoping to do many simple apple desserts with. Melissa leaves it open to the home cook to decide which apple they like the best in her skillet apple pie recipe, but when baking with apples, it is best to use one that will hold their shape in the high heat of the oven. Royal Gala, Golden Delicious, and Northern Spy apples are all excellent firm-fleshed apples that hold their shapes very well through baking and still taste great once cooked. Don’t fret, however, if you have Macintosh or a less firm cooking apple on hand, since no matter what, this apple biscuit recipe will turn out amazing.
This easy apple pie recipe uses a ten-inch cast iron skillet, which is such a versatile pan to cook and bake with. Cast iron pans used to be the most common cooking tool, but as other varieties of non-stick pans have come out over the years, cast iron fell out of favour. Now that people are concerned with what non-stick pans are made of, like Teflon, more people are turning to making their cooked and baked recipes in cast iron pans once again. There are several benefits to cooking with cast iron, including that it maintains very even heat, becomes more non-stick the more you use it, and can be used in both the oven and on the stove. If you have a challenge getting a significant amount of iron into your diet, cooking with cast iron can help a lot as it has been shown that some of the iron will seep into the food that you cook. Although you can cook this apple pie skillet recipe in any ten-inch pan, consider purchasing cast iron, because of its many benefits.
