For the Dough

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cubed, frozen
  • 1 1/2 cup all purpose flour, sifted
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 TBSP white sugar
  • 1 tsp Apple Cide Vinegar or White vinegar
  • 8 TBSP Cold water May need more or less depending on the humidity of your kitchen

For the Filling

  • 2 Cosmic Crisp Washington State Apples Cored and sliced
  • 2 TBSP freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 3 TBSP brown sugar

For the Topping

  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1 TBSP coarse sugar


For the Dough

  • Put cubed butter into freezer for at least 15min.
  • Combine flour, salt, sugar into a large bowl
  • Add frozen butter into flour mixture. Use your hands or a stand mixer to combine butter into flour mixture. Note that you won't be able to fully incorporate it since it is frozen, but that is the perfect way to get flakey dough.
  • Add apple cider vinegar (or regular vinegar), mix to combine.
  • Add cold water one tablespoon at a time until a dough ball forms together. Depending on the temperature and humidity of your kitchen, you may need more or less water to get the dough ball to form.
  • Wrap dough ball in plastic wrap and put into refrigerator for at least one hour.

For the Filling

  • Slice Cosmic Crisp Apples into thin slices and put into large bowl
  • Add cinnamon, sugar and lemon juice into the bowl with apples and toss to coat all the slices. Set aside

Putting It All Together

  • Preheat oven to 400 F
  • On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out into a rectangular shape, about 1/4 inch thick
  • Pour apple mixture into the middle of the rolled out dough
  • Fold edges over, over lapping the previous fold with each new fold. It doesn't have to look pretty so don't worry if it is not even.
  • Brush dough with egg wash and sprinkle with some coarse sugar.
  • Bake for about 35-40 minutes, until the crust is golden brown
