Dutch oven apple pie

TOTAL TIME: 1 hr

Serves: 4

Ingredients: 

  • 6-8 tart apples (Granny Smith’s will do)
  • ¾ cup sugar 
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • Pinch of salt
  • Store-bought pie crust

Method: 

  1. Prepare your fire so that you will be cooking with hot coals.
  2. Place baking paper at the bottom of a Dutch oven and place the pie crust (defrosted) on top.
  3. Slice apples in half and then into quarters, leaving the skin on, and pile them into the pie crust.
  4. Mix all the dry ingredients together and sprinkle over the top of the apples.
  5. Cut the butter into chunks and place them on top of the filling.
  6. Place your second pie crust on top and make a few slices with a sharp knife for steam to escape and put the lid on.
  7. Spread the coals so that they surround the Dutch oven and bake for 30 minutes, checking with tongs to ensure there’s no burning. Cook until the crust is golden, edges crispy and filling is bubbling.
  8. Take off the coals and remove the pie, letting it rest for a few minutes. Serve with ice cream and cream.
