Skillet Tennessee Apple Crumble

Serves 8

Prep Time: 30 minutes

Cook Time: 1 hour

Apple crumble is like the sweet, little cousin of apple pie and apple cobbler. It has that warm, gooey filling of apple pie, yet slightly resembles a cobbler with a thinner, crispier layer on the top. This serves well warm with a scoop of fresh ice cream!


  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon, ground
  • 1/8 tsp. cloves, ground
  • 2 cups plus 2 tbsp. flour, gluten free
  • Vanilla bean ice cream, prepared
  • 2 tbsp. Swerve Sweetener
  • 2-3 tsp. lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp. nutmeg, ground
  • 1 tsp. Pit Boss Grills Tennessee Apple Butter Seasoning
  • 1/2 cup shortening, coconut recommended
  • 1/4 cup water, cold
  • Salt, to taste


  • Skillet
  • Large mixing spoon
  • Measuring cups
  • 2 Mixing bowl


Turn your grill to smoke, once the fire pot catches - preheat your grill to 350°F.

Combine 1½ cups flour and a dash of salt. Add shortening and cut into flour with hand mixer or pastry blender. Blend until course and crumbly.

Add COLD water in a tbsp. at a time. Mix after each addition.

Once dough has formed into a ball, wrap it in plastic and refrigerate for 20 minutes.

While the dough is refrigerating slice your apples and add them to a large mixing bowl.

Cut the lemon, and juice it into the apples (to keep them from turning brown).

Grease the skillet with shortening.

Roll out dough into skillet.

In a mixing bowl add the Swerve, 2 tbsp. of flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and Pit Boss Grills Tennessee Apple Butter Seasoning.

Add this flour mix to the apples.

In a medium bowl, add the remaining 1/2 cup flour and the brown sugar. Add butter and mix with hand mixer. This will become course and crumbly – that’s good!

Add the apple mixture on top of the crust in the skillet.

Add the brown sugar mixture on top of the apples. Sprinkle evenly.

Bake on indirect heat until the apples are tender and bubbly. About 50-60 minutes. Rotate 1/2 way through.

Remove and place on cooling rack for 10-15 minutes.

Serve and enjoy with your favorite ice cream!
