3 T Unsalted Butter
3 Pounds Gala or Fuji Apples (6), Peeled and thinly sliced
C Plus 2T sugar

Flour- for rolling

Directions:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil. On a lightly floured work surface, unfold pastry and roll out to a 12x14 inch rectangle. Place on sheet and refrigerate.

In a large skillet, melt butter and reserve 1T in a small bowl. To skillet, add apples, C sugar and cinnamon. Cook on medium-high heat tossing occasionally until apples are tender and liquid has evaporated (15 minutes). Spread on another baking sheet to let cool completely (you can put it in the fridge to cool it faster).

Mound the filling in a strip down the center of puff pastry, leaving about a 1-inch border. Fold top part, then bottom part of dough. Turn the pastry over, seam side down (its not as hard as it sounds!).

Brush pastry with reserved melted butter and sprinkle with remaining sugar. Use a small, sharp knife to cut steam vents in the center of the pastry. Bake until golden brown, 34-40 minutes. Let rest for 10 minutes before serving.
