Deep Dish Apple Pie


For the Pie Filling

2 medium apples, cored and diced

1 tablespoon unsalted butter

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 tablespoon brown sugar

For the Cookie

1/2 cup butter, at room temperature

1 cup brown sugar

1 tablespoon vanilla

1 egg

1 cup flour

1/4 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon sea salt

1 tablespoon cinnamon sugar

For the Topping

1 Apple, cored and finely sliced

2 tablespoons unsalted butter

2 tablespoons brown sugar

Pinch of course sea salt

Preheat your oven 350, then lightly grease an 9" skillet with butter and set aside.

For the Pie Filling

Combine all Filling ingredients in a small saucepan.

Bring to a boil; reduce heat and gently simmer while stirring, apples are soft.

For the Cookie

Combine butter, sugar and vanilla into a bowl and whisk until light and creamy.

Add the egg and whisk again until smooth.

In another bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder and salt.

Using a wooden spoon, stir flour into the batter and slowly mix until combined.

Spoon 2/3 the cookie dough into the pan.

Pour the Apple Pie Filling over the cookie dough 1" from the edges.

Spoon remaining cookie dough batter over the top of the apple mixture and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.

Bake for 35 to 40 minutes until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out slightly dirty.

The cookie will be moist and fudgy when taken out, but will set and firm as it cools.

Once cooled, cut into 12 slices.

For the Salted Caramel Topping

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

Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer until apples soft and caramel has thickened.

Serve with Topping. Enjoy!
