Our campfire apple pies are a delicious mix of buttery, crispy toasted bread and sweet apple pie filling.

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. You really have to make them and try this recipe to know how good they are.

The best part about mountain pies is that you can create any pie flavor you want. We’ve made peach campfire pies and pumpkin mountain pies and they all turn out buttery and delicious.
