Step 1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F

Step 2

Butter a 9 inch glass pie plate.

Step 3

In a small bowl whisk together one egg and 1 tablespoon from the 1/2 cup milk. Set this aside, it will be used as a glaze for the top of the cake.

Step 4

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.

Step 5

Cut the butter into small pieces and blend into the flour mixture with a pastry blender till it looks like coarse crumbs.

Step 6

In a separate small bowl whisk together the remaining one egg, remaining milk, and vanilla extract and add to the flour mixture, stirring just until the dough comes together.

Step 7

Transfer to a lightly floured surface and knead dough gently four or five times and then divide the dough in half.

Step 8

Pat one half of the dough onto the bottom and up the sides of the pie plate.

Step 9

In a separate bowl toss together the cut apples, sugar and cinnamon.

Step 10

Spread the apples evenly over the dough in the pie plate.

Step 11

Roll the remaining dough into a 9 inch circle, on a lightly floured surface, and gently place the dough over the apples.

Step 12

With your fingers seal the edges of the top and bottom crusts.

Step 13

Brush the top of the dough with the egg and milk glaze, and sprinkle with white sugar.

Step 14

Cut a slit in the center of the dough to allow the steam to escape.

Step 15

Bake in the preheated oven for about 35 - 45 minutes or until the pastry is nicely browned and a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.

Step 16

Cool on a wire rack. Serve warm with whipped cream or ice cream.
