Grilled Apple Pie

  • 1 pre-made pie crust
  • 4-5 Granny Smith apples, thinly sliced
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 tbsp corn starch
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • Ice cream and whipped cream for serving

Preheat the grill to a medium heat, about 350 degrees.

In a bowl, combine apples, sugar, corns starch, cinnamon, and lemon juice. Combine and set aside. Line a 9” aluminum pie plate with crust and, using a spoon, press down into edges. Pour apple mixture into crust and fold remaining crust edges over top.

Place a baking tray upside down on a the grill grates. This will create a raised surface so the crust bottom won’t burn. Put the pie on top of the baking tray, and close grill lid. Cook for 20-30 minutes, checking at 15 minutes to make sure the crust isn’t burning.

Cool and serve with whipped cream and ice cream.
