Mouthwatering apple cranberry cast iron recipe

During the colder months of the season, certain deserts and dishes receive special attention. Not simply because they are delicious, but because the complex of flavors and textures these dishes represent inspire a feeling of warmth, satisfaction, and wellbeing.

While it’s currently experiencing something of a renaissance, cuisine made in cast iron cookware is still a mystery to many. For many types of dishes, it’s a preferable vessel type, largely due to how heat exchange occurs between the metal and the food in the dish.

However, you need not be conversant with physics to know that skillet pies are some of the tastiest in the land.

If you’re looking for recipes and kitchen techniques that will make you a better cook, you should know that what you cook with matter. The best cookware is going to provide you with maximum benefit-measurable in delicious food-and represent minimum detriment-measurable in food that doesn’t make the cut.

No, don’t toss out your dreams of owning a saucier for an all-cast-iron kitchen, but do read cookware reviews before buying cast iron online.

Not all vessels for sale are pre-seasoned, and not every skillet will be ideal for you. Think about how much food you typically cook at any one time (overall size), what types of dishes you tend to favor (vessel depth), and what you’ll get the most mileage out of (shape and ease of use) before purchasing your very own skillet.

To get you started on the path to deliciousness, here’s an incredibly delicious recipe for a crowd-pleasing skillet pie.

Appleberry Skillet Pie


  • 8 apples, cored and chopped.
  • (Peeling optional.)
  • 1/3 c dark brown sugar
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 3 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 2 tbsp all purpose flour
  • 1/2 c dried, unsweetened cranberries
  • 2 refrigerated, rolled piecrusts (you can use your own recipe, if preferred.)

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients, except the pie crusts.

Mix well. Shape the bottom piecrust to your skillet.

Pour the filling in and dot it with bits of unsalted butter. Carefully tuck the top crust over the mixture, sealing it as much as possible to prevent moisture loss during baking.

Bake for 30 to 35 minutes.

The cranberry, which is indigenous to North America, has always been an intense source of vitamin C.

In the boggy environments, which are its preferred growing condition, many other sources of this essential nutrient are either available only during warmer weather or not at all.

Hence, because of its nutritional benefits, people have been finding ways to incorporate its bitter flavor into their cuisine across many cultures and generations.

While it can be used as a meat flavoring, the most common use was often pairing it with something much sweeter in order to access its beneficial flavanoids.

Pies such as cranberry apple combinations require a baking vessel that will provide the right kind of consistent heat throughout the filling matrix. While it isn’t ideal for every culinary endeavor, the best cookware for this sort of complex pie filling is going to be cast iron.

Take time to read cookware reviews offered by other consumers with similar needs to yours. This will allow you to find the right item for your kitchen.
