Ingredients

Steps

  • 1
    Build campfire, and let burn until most of the large flames have subsided.
  • 2
    Meanwhile, separate dough into 4 rectangles; reshape each rectangle to form 6x4-inch rectangle, firmly pressing perforations to seal.
  • 3
    Spoon 1/4 cup of the pie filling onto center of each rectangle to within 1/2 inch of edges. Fold dough in half (starting with one of the short ends) over filling; firmly press around edges with fork to completely seal. Spray inside of pie iron with cooking spray. Place one filled crescent into pie iron; close iron, and latch shut. (If you only have one pie iron/camp cooker, place remaining assembled pies/pockets in refrigerator or cooler while cooking in batches.)
  • 4
    Cook over medium heat (near hot embers) 10 to 15 minutes, turning occasionally, until dough is golden brown and cooked through. Cool 5 minutes before serving. Repeat for remaining crescent pies, carefully watching cook time as pie iron heats up.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Use any remaining apple pie filling as topping for waffles or pancakes. Or top with granola, and enjoy as an easy crumble-inspired treat! Instead of apple, try peach or cherry pie filling for a fun flavor twist.
  • tip 2
    We recommend cooking these campfire apple pie packets over hot coals, with smaller flames. For best results, always start with lower end of cook range, and take a peek inside the pie iron to evaluate for doneness. If you get tired of holding them over the campfire, try setting them on a campfire-approved cooking grate instead. Just make sure you remember to flip them!
  • tip 3
    Be careful cooking over open flames. Cast-iron cookware, like pie irons, retains heat. Be sure to use care when handling and removing food from them during cooking. It’s also helpful to have more than one pie iron. We tested this recipe with a square-shaped cast-iron pie iron. They may also be referred to as camp cookers or sandwich irons.
  • tip 4
    Be sure to use metal utensils when cooking over a campfire; plastic utensils will melt due to the extreme heat.
