all gone! Yummy!
½ cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
6 Granny Smith apples -- peeled, cored, quartered, and thinly sliced
3 (9 inch) refrigerated prerolled pie crusts
1 ¼ cup sugar, divided
2 tsp cinnamon, divided
2 tb butter, melted
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Place 1/2 cup butter into a heavy cast iron skillet, and melt butter in the oven. Remove skillet and sprinkle with brown sugar; return to oven to heat while you prepare the apples.
Remove skillet, and place 1 refrigerated pie crust on top of the brown sugar. No need to trim the crust, just press it up the sides of the pan. Top the pie crust with half the sliced apples. Sprinkle apples with ½ cup of sugar and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon; place a second pie crust over the apples; top the second crust with the remaining apples, and sprinkle with ½ cup sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon. Top with the third crust; brush the top of the crust with the melted butter using a pastry brush and sprinkle the top crust with ¼ cup sugar. Cut several slits into the top crust for steam.
Bake in the preheated oven until the apples are tender and the crust is golden brown, about 45 minutes. Serve warm.
