Skillet Apple Pie


1 single pastry crust recipe
6 to 8 apples peeled and cut into pie wedges
1 stick butter or margarine divided
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup raisins
cinnamon and nutmeg to taste
2 Tbs. Jack Daniels or rum or brandy
Powder sugar to garnish


In a 10 inch oven proof skillet, melt 1/2 of butter with sugar. Add raisins and apples and cook and turn apples over medium heat until apples are almost tender. Remove apples and raisins from skillet with slotted spoon. Add remainder of butter to skillet and cook syrup until thick, golden and bubbly. Remove from heat and add the Jack Daniels. Return apples and raisins to mixture and spread evenly in pan. Add the crust and seal all apples well, turning crust to fold up and inward to create border. Slash top deeply in several places. Place skillet into 400F oven and bake about 20 minutes until crust is golden . Remove to rack to cool. .Serve either warm or chilled. Cut as you would a regular apple pie. There is no bottom crust. It is optional to invert this pie so crust is on bottom and apples on top. If you want to this turn when pie is still warm but not hot. Sprinkle pie heavily with powder sugar. Great presentation when served right from the pan whether warm or chilled.
