Directions:
Preheat oven to 350. Melt butter in a 13 X 9 in baking dish. In a sauce pan, heat sugar and water until sugar melts. Cut shortening into flour until particles are like fine crumbs. Add milk and stir with a fork, only until dough leaves the side of the bowl. Turn out onto lightly floured surface. Knead just until smooth. Roll dough out into a large rectangle about inch thick. Sprinkle cinnamon over apples. Then place apples evenly over dough. Roll up dough like a jelly roll. Dampen the edges of the dough with a little water and seal. Place in baking dish with melted butter. Pour sugar syrup carefully over. Bake for 55 to 60 minutes.
