Grilling is certainly American, and so is apple pie. Team them together for our super-patriotic dessert Apple Pie on the Grill.

What You'll Need

  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
  • 4 cups peeled, thinly sliced baking apples (about 4 apples)
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup crushed ginger snaps
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 6 single-serving graham cracker tart shells

What to Do

  1. Preheat the grill to medium-high heat. In a large cast iron or other heavy skillet with a heat-proof handle, melt butter and saute apple until almost tender.
  2. In a small bowl, combine both sugars, the crushed ginger snaps, cinnamon, and cornstarch; sprinkle mixture over apples. Cook 2 to 3 minutes, stirring until a thick dark sauce forms. (Depending on the juiciness of the apples, 1 to 2 teaspoons of water may need to be stirred in to thin the sauce.)
  3. Remove mixture from heat and spoon into tart shells. Serve warm, or chill until ready to use.



When removing the skillet from the heat, use a pot holder and be careful because the handle gets mighty hot. These "pies" can be served plain or topped with whipped cream or scoops of frozen yogurt, custard, or ice cream.

If you are using a cast iron skillet or another type of oven safe cookware, I'm sure that it could be possible to do them in the oven. You pour the cooked apple mix into the premade mini pie shells right at the end, so the crust isn't affected. I might try it at 350 degrees until the apples are fork tender, then broil it for a couple minutes to get more of a grilled flavor!

Can I make them in the oven? I don't know how to grill. And it sounds great!

This is done in a skillet on the grill so you would be able to do it on the stove top. It is not baked in the oven. Hope this helps.

I am going to try this while we are camping this weekend. Instead of fresh apples I think I will take along some of my home canned apple slices. May save a bit of time sauteing.
