Summer cookouts and hot apple pie seem to go hand in hand, so why not combine the two with a grilled skillet pie? Start with a heavy cast iron skillet, then add a premade pie crust before loading the pan with your favorite filling. Almost any traditional pie recipe will work, or you can experiment to find combinations that are just right for the grill.
Need some ideas? Take advantage of summer's bounty with a pie loaded with fresh apples, peaches or berries. If you prefer a slightly more decadent dessert, try a chocolate pecan pie for the ultimate in melted, gooey sweetness. Keep an close eye on your dessert as it cooks, however, as heating times vary based on the type of grill you're using. Slice and serve with scoops of ice cream or finish with a tall, cold glass of milk.
