Hillbilly Pi(e)

This scrumptious caramel Apple pie is baked in a Cast Iron skillet. It is topped with a buttery crunch oatmeal topping.


Welcome to Pi(e) Day hosted by Terri from Love and Confections! Pi Day is celebrated every March 14 by math fans around the world – and also bakers and pastry chefs. Pi is an non-repeating, infinite number represented by the Greek letter π, and used to represent the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter. Today, March 14, 2015, is an extra special Pi Day, because at 9:26:53 AM it creates the “Pi Moment of the Century”. The first ten digits of Pi are 3.141592653 (3/14/15, 9:26 AM and 53 seconds). This exact date and time happens once every hundred years – a once in a lifetime moment for most of us. How cool is that? Today, 20 Food Bloggers have gathered and want to celebrate the fun of Pi by creating their own sweet and savory pies to share with you. Hope you have a delicious day!

Hillbilly Pie


1/2 stick unsalted butter
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1 refrigerated pie crust I used Pillsbury
1 21 oz can apple pie filling
3 tablespoons butter diced
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup instant oatmeal


Preheat your oven to 400 degrees
Melt your butter in a 9 inch skillet over medium heat. Add the brown sugar and allow to caramelize about 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and unroll the pie crust and lay over the brown sugar mixture. Pour the pie filling over the crust.
In a small bowl combine butter brown sugar and oatmeal. Crumble this mixture over the apple pie filling. Fold any loose pie crust inside the cast iron pan. Bake in the oven for 30-40 minutes. The top should be crispy and the crust browned around the edges.
Serve with vanilla ice cream.

    I too love the name of this pie and that it is baked in a cast iron. More pies should be cooked in a cast iron!
