At his restaurant, the BBQ Joint, chef-owner Andrew Evans wanted to make a pie as a special dessert, but there wasn't a pie dish to be found. He recruited a cast-iron skillet & #8212; which usually was used for frying bacon & #8212; and Hillbilly Pie was born. The restaurant now offers deep-dish pies made in cast-iron pans every day. Evans says this one is a favorite. Serve it with vanilla bean ice cream.
