Skillet Apple Pie with Homemade Cinnamon Ice Cream

Skillet Apple Pie with Homemade Cinnamon Ice Cream

Never miss a recipe! Subscribe to my emails!

This is the best part of food blogging, you know the need to make apple pie and homemade ice cream during the day.  It needs to be during the day so that I have the best light to take the photo.  And once you dish up a slice of pie topped with homemade ice cream, it must be eaten immediately.

The worst part is the huge pile of dishes I seem to dirty, I really need an assistant who is willing to wash dishes!  Volunteers?

Pie makes the boys so very happy, it is their favorite, unless it’s coconut.  I baked this pie  in my cast iron skillet, which makes the crust turn out just perfect.  A few friends have confessed that they don’t own cast iron skillets.  I can’t imagine not cooking with cast iron!  How about you?

Now let’s talk about the Homemade Cinnamon Ice Cream.  It  is delicious on its own but heavenly over warm apple pie.  Plus it is super easy to make while the pie bakes!  No eggs, so you don’t have to cook it but it is super creamy.

I used Ceylon cinnamon in the pie and in the ice cream.  My Mom was kind enough to include it in one of her care packages and I loved it.

We had one day of Spring on Monday and it’s back to snow, I plan to console myself with another piece of this pie and some more ice cream.  I know it’s wrong to eat two pieces of pie in one day but I am going to do it anyway!  I’m sure I will run it off in the mud and snow tomorrow maybe I will be chasing the cows instead of being chased, but that remains to be seen!

Skillet Apple Pie with Homemade Cinnamon Ice Cream


for pie:

  • prepared pie dough for double crust
  • 8 small apples, peeled, cored, and sliced (about 6 cups)
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon Ceylon cinnamon
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon sugar

for cinnamon ice cream:

  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon Ceylon cinnamon

Cooking Directions:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Lay 1 pie dough circle into a 10-12 inch cast iron skillet.

Place apples slices into a large bowl.

In a small bowl, combine brown sugar, flour, cinnamon and salt.  Pour over apple slices and toss to coat.  Pour into skillet and top with top pie dough.  Press edges to seal.  Using a sharp knife, cut several slits to vent.  Brush top with egg and sprinkle with sugar.  Place in oven cooking for 45 minutes or until apples are cooked through.

Allow to cool slightly before serving.

Meanwhile, prepare ice cream.

In a large bowl combine milk, cream, sweetened condensed milk, vanilla, and cinnamon.  Whisk until smooth and pour into bowl of ice cream maker.  Follow manufacturers directions.  Mine takes about 30 minutes.  Pour churned ice cream into an air tight container and place in freezer until ready to serve.

Serve pie warm with a big scoop of cinnamon ice cream.

I have that “problem” too ;) The BF sometimes gets a bowl of chili, or a milkshake for breakfast… he’s so supportive of my food blogging habits.

I love that you used pre-made pie crust. I can’t make a good crust for my life! The ice cream sounds amazing. I don’t have kids at home these days, so my husband is always happy to do dishes for a good meal. There aren’t that many in the sink anymore. :)

I was instantly hungry the minute these photos popped up on my screen. “Drool all over myself” hungry.

I repinned this last night and was so excited to check this out today. I want it all! This makes me that much more excited to get a cast iron skillet sooner than later.


Dawn March 7, 2012 at 10:32 pm

I got a cast iron skillet for Christmas but haven’t had the chance to break it in. I think I may christen it with this apple pie. Looks amazing – and cinnamon ice cream is the way to go. I’ve been hooked on it since first trying when I worked at a restaurant during college. Yum

Gorgeous!!! There is nothing like apple pie in a cat iron skillet. It makes my favorite.


Megan Pence March 8, 2012 at 2:02 am

Ohhh this is beautiful. And cinnamon ice cream? I need a quart of that, like yesterday!

I am such a pie crust loser – seriously, I just can’t get it right. Your pie crust, on the other hand, looks beyond perfect! I’ll have to try the cast-iron method.

Hey, Miss.
I found a cast iron pie dish that I really enjoy.
I need a virtual assistant who would be willing to gain the weight for me.
As long as I still got to do all the tasting and eating.
I’m not having much luck with finding that person.

you really got me with home made cinnamon ice cream but making apple pie in a skillet is brilliant!


what katie's baking March 8, 2012 at 12:11 pm

Sylvie @ Gourmande in the Kitchen March 8, 2012 at 3:54 pm

Oh what a heavenly combination!


Danijela March 8, 2012 at 6:08 pm

I think this is a lovely combination. To be honest, I don’t know will I manage to make this pie the same way you did, this one looks great, but I think this ice cream won’t be a problem. Beautiful recipe.


DJ March 8, 2012 at 8:22 pm

Yum Missy, got to try this no wonder the plate was empty on facebook. Love you ideas.


Erin @ Lemon Sugar March 9, 2012 at 10:05 am

Love it! I just made a skillet apple pie and blogged it, too – next time I’m totally going to try your cinnamon ice cream. Great blog here!!


Tracy March 13, 2012 at 4:31 am

I love making cinnamon ice cream! I’ll definitely have to make this gorgeous pie the next time I whip up a batch!

How many days in advance can I make the Cinnamon Ice Cream?


Jessica December 2, 2013 at 2:03 pm

Hello! So I just came across this recipe on pinterest, and I’m dying to try it. But… I have to know… where are these plates from? That is dish perfection. I need them.


Milisa December 2, 2013 at 2:11 pm

Thanks!! The plates are Better Homes and Gardens and I bought them at Walmart a few years ago. Hope you can find them.
