Roll out larger ball in a lightly floured surface until it is large enough to cover the bottom and sides of a 9 in. springform pan, with about 2 in. of overhang. Roll smaller dough ball into a 9 in. circle.
To prepare filling, combine apples, flour sugar cinnamon and salt; toss well. Spoon into prepared crust. Sprinkle pieces of butter on top. Place top crust evenly around top crust. Cut 10-12 slits in top crust. Sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar if desired. Bake about 1 hour or until crust is deep golden and the filling oozes through the slits.
