Step 1

Set the EGG for indirect cooking with the convEGGtor at 350°F/176°C. Preheat the skillet in the EGG.

Step 2

Put apple pieces into a bowl and add lemon juice, toss thoroughly. Add flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, sugar and vanilla extract to the apples and toss to coat.

Step 3

Add the butter and the apple mixture to the cast iron skillet and cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the bourbon and cook for another 5 minutes. The mixture should be thick – like syrup.

Step 4

Oil the pie pan and add one piece of the dough, then add the apple filling. With the other piece of dough you can cut strips to lattice or use a cookie cutter to design the top.

Step 5

Brush the egg wash over the top of the pie, and sprinkle with sugar. Bake for 50 minutes. Remove from the EGG and let cool and set for 10 minutes – serve with ice cream. Enjoy!
