Cast Iron Skillet Apple Crisp can be made in an oven or on a grill over medium indirect heat with the lid closed.
About 6 medium-sized apples — peeled, cored, and diced
1/4 cup of apple cider (or water with a little lemon juice to prevent browning)
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp sugar
2/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup oats
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
1/3 cup shortening
1 tsp vanilla extract
Medium cast iron skillet (10″ diameter)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Put diced apples in a bowl with apple cider, cinnamon, and sugar. Turn to coat apple pieces to prevent browning. Set aside.
Place topping ingredients into a bowl and mix together with a fork or with your hand until small clumps form.
When you're done, it should look something like this.
Pour apples into a lightly-oiled skillet in an even layer.
Pour the topping over the apples in an even layer. Place skillet in the oven or grill and bake for 30-40 minutes or until apples are soft and topping is crisp.
