How To Make Apple Pie Deep Dish Skillet Cookie

Too many apples? Make an apple pie! But in this recipe, we are going to make a deep-dish apple pie using cookie dough for that fudgy and dense texture.

Preparation: 10 minutes
Cooking: 50 minutes
Total: 1 hour



For Apple Filling

  • 2mediumred apples
  • 1tbspbutter
  • ½tspground cinnamon
  • 1tspvanilla extract
  • 1tbspbrown sugar

For Cookie

  • ½cup butter(softened at room temperature)
  • 1cupbrown sugar
  • 1tbspvanilla extract
  • 1egg
  • 1cupflour
  • ¼tspbaking powder
  • ¼tspof salt
  • 1tbspcinnamon sugar

For Salted Caramel Apple Topping (Optional)

  • 1apple(cored and finely sliced)
  • 2tbsplight butteror reduced fat butter
  • 2tbspbrown sugar
  • pinch of salt


  1. Preheat oven at 350 degrees F. Lightly grease a 9-inch skillet with butter and wipe over excess with a paper towel and set aside.

  2. Combine all ingredients for the filling in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil and reduce heat and gently simmer while occasionally stirring, until apples have softened and caramel has thickened.

  3. In the meantime, prepare cookie by combining the butter, sugar and vanilla into a large bowl, and whisk until light and creamy. Add the egg and whisk again until smooth.

  4. In another bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Using a wooden spoon, stir flour into the batter and slowly mix until just combined. Spoon the cookie dough into the pan.

  5. Pour the apple pie filling over the cookie dough 1-inch from the edges. Spoon remaining cookie dough batter over the top of the apple mixture and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.

  6. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out slightly dirty. The cookie will be moist and fudgy when taken out, but will set and firm as it cools.

  7. Once cooled, cut into 16 slices. Serve with Salted Caramel Apple Topping.

For Caramel Sauce

  1. Combine all ingredients into the same saucepan you used for the apple pie filling.

  2. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and gently simmer until apple slices have softened and caramel has thickened.
