What’s in It
The Dollywood apple pie is a melt-in-your-mouth pastry that is made from scratch and baked in a cast iron skillet to guarantee a nice, flaky crust. The filling is made of about 35 aromatic apples, a hint of cinnamon, butter and sugar. The pies are baked fresh every day! It’s sure to satisfy your sweet tooth. You can order by the slice, or splurge and get the entire pie! An individual slice weighs 3 pounds and can feed about 4 adults, so for only $18.99, you’ll have plenty of pie to go around. The price for the whole pie is $189.99 plus tax, and you can even get the cast iron skillet it’s baked in to go along with it!
How It’s Made
Are you wondering how this tasty treat gets made? With delicious ingredients and a little bit of love! The filling for the pie is made by mixing the apples by hand in the brown sugar cinnamon, sugar and butter. Then, the pie is topped off with a perfect lattice. After a quick baste with more butter and a little sugar sprinkled on top, it’s placed in the oven where it bakes for about 3 hours at 350 degrees until the crust is a perfect golden color. The bakery has been making one of these pies every day for the past 8 years!
