I made this pie with 4 large Granny Smith apples and they filled a 9" skillet. I also used 1/2 cup of each sugar. 2 cups total of sugar seemed way too much for 4 apples. I would suggest you place skillet in a foil/parchment lined pan as juices will run over. It took 1 hour to bake. Someone suggested that I line the skillet with parchment paper to make clean-up easier. I will try that next time I make this pie. This is a messy pie, but so good.
To be sure, this made a very rich and flavorful dessert, but it was more of a cobbler than a pie. Pie crust has always been a challenge for me to make, but now that my inlaws are coming for Thanksgiving this year, I want to have apple pie mastered by the time they get here, which is why I'm starting now. This recipe is a good first step. I love the filling and the buttery brown sugar layer on the bottom, and it goes so well with a scoop of ice cream melting alongside. Thanks for sharing.
