Apple Filling

  • 7 Autumn Glory apples, peeled and sliced
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


  • 2 cups self-rising flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 cup heavy cream plus 1-2 tablespoons if needed
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon sugar (1 teaspoon cinnamon, 1 teaspoon sugar mixed together)

Vanilla Ice Cream or Whipped Cream for Topping


  1. Preheat grill to 425°F (alternatively can bake in the oven).
  2. Combine apples, cinnamon, sugar, lemon juice, cornstarch, and vanilla in a cast iron skillet and toss to combine.
  3. Place skillet on the grill and close the lid, stirring a few times until apples begin to soften. Move to indirect heat at this time so apples don’t burn.
  4. While apples begin to cook mix together flour, sugar, 1 cup heavy cream, and vanilla in a bowl and stir with a wooden spoon until mixture just comes together, add an additional tablespoon of heavy cream if needed for moisture.
  5. Turn dough out onto a floured surface and form into a smooth disc and pat until dough is about ¼-½ inch thick. Reform dough and repeat until you have 8 shortcakes.
  6. Place shortcakes on top of the apples and brush with the remaining heavy cream and then sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
  7. Close grill lid and bake for 35-40 minutes until shortcakes are cooked through on indirect heat.
  8. Serve with homemade ice cream or whipped cream.
