Cookie Sheet Apple Pie

Cookie Sheet Apple Pie

Ingredients

Crust

2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1 cup whipping cream

Filling

5 medium sized tart apples
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon all purpose flour
Dash salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Glaze

1 egg
2 tablespoons milk

Directions

For crust

Combine all the ingredients for the crust except for the butter and whipping cream. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Blend in the whipping cream to make a firm dough. Chill if necessary until firm. Dust a lightly greased baking sheet with flour, flatten dough out onto the baking sheet. Roll or pat out to 1/4" thickness. Trim to make a 14" square. Roll out the trimmings and cut into strips.

To prepare apples

Pare, core and slice apples. Turn into bowl, mix with filling ingredients.

To assemble pie

Arrange apples in rows over crust in pan, leaving 2" empty at edges. Dot with 2 tablespoons of butter. Arrange strips in criss-cross fashion over apples, then fold edges of crust up and over ends of strips, pinch corners to seal. Beat egg and milk, and brush pastry with the mixture. Bake at 400 degrees F 30 to 35 minutes or until golden and apples are cooked.
