Campfire Apple Pies


We’ve been making campfire apple pies since we were kids! They’re honestly one of my favorite campfire desserts, I’ll even go as far as saying they’re right up there with S’mores. But since they require a nifty tool that I didn’t have until now, we haven’t made them in years! They’re buttery, crispy (like toast!) and have a sweet apple pie filling. Really they’re insanely delicious, especially with a lot of BUTTER! And they’re easy to make, no messing around with crust recipes, just two pieces of buttered white bread and then a super simple apple pie filling. Lock them into the cast iron cooker and then cook over a fire until each side is golden brown! Read below for the recipe. Also, tomorrow we’ll be featuring a fun beach bonfire I hosted for a few of our friends! PS… Pie makers are on sale at World Market for $3.95!

Campfire Apple Pies
6 apples thinly sliced. A variety of green and red is best.
Juice of 1 lemon
1/2 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
5 tablespoons butter
1 loaf white bread
1 stick butter, softened

Mix all of the ingredients together (except for the bread and 1 stick butter) in a large bowl and mix until apples are fully covered with the mixture.

Butter two pieces of bread, both sides.

Place a piece of bread on the bottom of the pie cooker. Fill it with the apple mixture (pile it high) then place the other piece of bread on top and close the pie cooker.

Hold over a fire, until each side is golden brown.

    Yum! I haven’t had a hobo pie in years! Probably since I was a kid. I didn’t know you could still buy the irons. I’m totally getting one!

      Today was the first time I ever saw the term Hobo Pie. I love it. In South Africa we call them jaffles. 🙂
