Looking for a hearty dish to make around the campfire? Dutch Oven Apple Pie is a people pleasing way to keep all your campers happy. This one turned out perfect and was simple to make with store bought pie pastry and some apple pie filling with fresh apples added.
- 1 box refrigerated pie crust sheets
- 1 can apple pie filling
- 2 Granny Smith Apples, peeled, cored, and sliced thin
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 3/4 stick real butter cut into cubes
- 1/2 cup water
Light 25 charcoal bricks and assemble the apple pie while waiting for charcoal to heat and turn grey.
Allow pie crusts to warm to room temperature out of the cooler for 10-15 minutes. Unroll on of the refrigerated pie pastries and line the bottom of a 10″ Dutch oven with one of them, pressing the edges up onto the sides of oven. In a large bowl add the apple pie filling, sliced fresh apples, sugar, and cinnamon. Pour mixture into Dutch oven. Dot the apple filling mixture with the butter cubes. Pour water over the filling. Top the mixture with the other pie crust sheet. Press edges to the sides and into the other pie crust. Sprinkle a little sugar and cinnamon over the top pie crust. Cover Dutch oven with lid and place over prepared charcoals. Place 8 hot charcoals under the Dutch Oven and 17 hot charcoals on top of the lid. Every 15 minutes rotate Dutch oven 1/4 turn clockwise, then rotate the lid 1/4 turn counterclockwise. Cook Apple Pie approximately 40 minutes or until crust is golden brown and filling is bubbly. Remove from heat and cool slightly before serving.
