Note to Self: Bake More Pies!

This is a skillet pie, something I just recently discovered. This particular skillet pie is "Delores's Apple Puff Pancake Pie". How could it not be good - it's a pancake, it's a pie and it has apples, cinnamon and sugar! It was not only good, it was delicious! And really easy to make, too. Just in case you'd like to try it, here's the recipe.

Delores's Apple Puff Pancake Pie
1/4 Cup Sugar
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
3 Lrg Eggs
1/2 Cup Milk
1 tsp Grated Lemon Zest
1/2 Cup Flour
1/2 Cup Unsalted Butter, Divided
2 Tart Apples, I used Granny Smith, peeled, quartered and sliced 1/4" thick
Sifted Confectioner's Sugar

1. Preheat oven to 450, set out a 10" cast iron skillet

2. In a small bowl, mix the sugar and cinnamon, set aside

3. In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs, milk and lemon zest. Blend in the flour until just mixed - the batter will be slightly lumpy

4. In the skillet, melt 1/4 cup of the butter over medium heat. Add the apples and saute for 5 minutes or until tender. Pour the egg batter over the apples and transfer the skillet to the oven. Bake for 20 minutes or until the apples are tender and the pie puffs up high.

5. Meanwhile, melt the remaining 1/4 cup of butter. Remove the skillet from the oven, drizzle the puff pie with the butter, and sprinkle with the cinnamon-sugar. Return the pie to the oven for 5 minutes or until the sugar mix is bubbly. Sprinkle with a little confectioner's sugar and serve immediately, right from the skillet. Yummy!!

(My husband thought it would be good with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top! We didn't have any vanilla, maybe next time.)
