Sift together the flour and sugar. With a pastry blender or mixer, cut 1/2 C. chilled butter into the flour mixture until it resembles tiny peas. In a small bowl, whisk together the egg, 4 Tbs. milk, 1 tsp. vanilla and salt. Combine the milk mixture with the flour mixture and gently stir until the dough holds together, adding an additional 1 Tbs. milk if necessary. Chill the dough. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Peel, core and slice the apples. Combine the apples with the brown sugar, cinnamon and remaining 1 tsp. vanilla. Spread the apples in a 9-by-13-inch baking pan and dot with the remaining 2 Tbs. chilled butter. Drop the dough topping in small pieces over the apples (it is OK if there are spaces without topping). Bake for 45 to 60 minutes or until the apples are tender and bubbly and the topping is golden brown. Serve warm. Serving Size : 12

  • I don't know who tested this recipe or proofread the recipe, but 1/2 cup of flour just doesn't do it.
