This easy Stuffed Crust Skillet Apple Pie has a hidden layer of English toffee bits and toasted pecans sandwiched between two pie crusts. Hiding goodies in the crust is a simple technique that adds an element of surprise and takes this cinnamon-sugar topped apple pie over the top. Serve a slice just as is or with a generous scoop of vanilla ice cream or dollop of fresh whipped cream.
Easy Stuffed Crust Skillet Apple Pie Recipe
While apple pie is made and served year-round it marches boldly to the forefront of dessert offerings during fall harvest time. It's the forerunner to pumpkin and rightly so, if you ask me, let's enjoy each season and not rush things, don't you think? It truly is as All-American as baseball and is the dessert equivalent of comfort food.
How to Make the Best Stuffed Crust Skillet Apple Pie
- Ingredients you'll need to make homemade Stuffed Crust Skillet Apple Pie: Refrigerated pie crusts, Granny Smith apples, granulated sugar, chopped pecans, toffee bits, melted butter, apple jelly, apple pie spice or ground cinnamon.
- Kitchen tools you'll need: A 10 inch cast iron skillet or similar oven safe skillet or deep pie dish, an apple corer and peeler, small bowl, sharp knife and cutting board, measuring cups and spoons and a pastry brush.
- I begin this stuffed crust recipe using refrigerated pie crusts to keep the prep simple. That being said, you could certainly use my Flaky Pie Crust recipe instead.
- Should you make your own crust, I recommend that you roll the homemade crusts thin since this recipe doubles the crust layer. A thinner crust is more suited in this application and will allow the hidden layer to shine.
- If you don't have apple pie spice on hand, you can use cinnamon instead.
- When folding over the edges of the crust, it's not necessary to fuss too much making the edges perfect. This is a rustic pie and meant to reflect the handcrafted love in every bite.
- Don't miss the opportunity to top this apple extravaganza with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream just before serving.
- Store Stuffed Crust Apple Pie at room temperature for up to 3 days or chilled for up to 5 days.

How could you ever go wrong with apple pie. But, that little surprise inside the crust makes it next level good. Thanks for sharing your recipe!
I'm happy you enjoyed it, thanks!
The toasted nuts at the bottom made all the difference! Wow. It was a hit. Took longer in my skillet which was a bit bigger, about twice as long for some reason but was well worth the wait. Nice twist on the traditional apple pie!
Wonderful, glad you loved this one. It's a personal favorite.
Hello, I was wondering if the apple jelly is absolutely necessary, or if I can get away with skipping it.
Any substitutions are welcome also. Thank you!
Hi Karen, to me yes, it's necessary for the finish. If you choose to skip it, you can.
Love this idea! What a great combination of flavors and much easier than it looks. Thanks for the recipe.
Thanks Gail, it does look fussy but it's not. Thanks for stopping by!
