Apple Slices

This is for my Bunco friends and anyone else who loves apple desserts!! This is basically a giant apple pie with frosting on top! :)

You will need:

3 c. flour
1 1/2 t. baking powder
1 t. salt
1/2 c. shortening
1 c. milk

Filling (OR 3 apple pie kits--find out more about these here):
12 large apples (peeled, cored and sliced)
2 1/4 c. sugar
6 T. flour
3 t. cinnamon
6T. butter

2 1/2 c. powdered sugar
3T. milk
1/3 c. butter, softened
1/2 t. vanilla

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

For pastry: In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt. Stir together. Cut in the shortening with a pastry blender until it is the consistency of coarse crumbs. Slowly stir in milk until completely blended. Separate dough into two balls. Roll out 1 ball of dough to fit a jelly roll pan (15x10) with some dough extending over the edge of the pan.

For filling: Combine all of the ingredients and layer over bottom crust.

Roll out remaining dough and place over the apple filling. Seal the edges and prick the top several times with a fork.

Bake for 30-40 minutes. Cool 5 minutes before frosting.

For frosting: In a small bowl, combine all of the ingredients and beat until smooth and creamy. Spread over dessert.
