This is so yummy! When you are looking for a dessert for a large group this is always a hit.Took this to a birthday party recently and everyone really enjoyed it. I made an Amish "perfect pie crust recipe" for it and it really was perfectly tender and just the right size for my 15 inch long jelly roll sheet pan.
3 cups flour
1 tsp. salt
1+1/4 cups Crisco
1 beaten egg
1/3 cup cold water
1 Tbs. vinegar
Mix well and form into a ball.
Divide in two and chill .
6 lbs. Granny Smith apples, peeled and sliced thin
2+1/4 cups sugar
6 Tbs. small tapioca
2 tsp cinnamon
Mix filling and set aside to soften the tapioca.
You will also need some
butter for dotting apples
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Roll out bottom crust to completely fit rectangle pan.
Spread apples evenly over bottom crust.
Dot apples with butter here and there.
Roll out top crust and place over top.
Seal and crimp edges and bake 1 hour .
Cool and cut in squares.
