Directions:
(Preheat oven to 400 degrees) Prepare Pastry in Cast Iron Skillet

Filling:
Blend thoroughly to cover all apple slices and place in the prepared pastry. Fold the pastry over the apples gently. There will be an opening in the center of the skillet. Sprinkle with sugar and place in the preheated oven. Bake until bubbly and golden brown about 45 minutes.

Pie Crust:
Combine flour, baking powder, salt, sugar. Blend Crisco into mixture with a pastry blender until mixture looks crumbly. Add egg and milk mixture and blend until the dough is formed to a firm consistency. Roll dough for the cast iron skillet. You need to make it round by big enough to come up over the sides of the skillet about 2 inches. This will give you enough crust to fold over the top of the apples leaving an opening in the middle of the pan. The crust does not need to be trimmed.
