Cast Iron Apple Galette


I am constantly making cast iron galettes because of how easy and delicious they are. They take two minutes to put together and will be done in less than a half an hour in most cases. This one is perfect for fall with the use of cinnamon and nutmeg. Use this at camp (or home) to top off a meal with great company.

Butter & flour to coat pan
1 store bought pie crust
3 granny smith apples, cored, peeled and sliced evenly
1/4 c brown sugar
1/4 c flour
2 tbsp sugar in the raw
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp nutmeg
2 tbsp butter, diced
1 egg, beaten
Sugar in the raw for dusting the crust

Coat the cast iron skillet in butter and dust with flour. Knock out the excess flour and lay in the pie crust centered. In a large bowl, add the apples, sugars, flour, and spices into a bowl and toss to coat. Dump the apple mix into the crust and spread out evenly. Start pulling in the sides up and over the edges (about 2-3 inches) all the way around. Use your beaten egg to coat the side crusts so they get a nice golden brown and don’t burn. Sprinkle the sugar over the edges and cook for 25-30 minutes or until apples are completely soft and the edges are brown. If you’re cooking at home, the temp will be 375. Otherwise use indirect heat at camp over the fire or over hot coals.
