"Plain fresh bread, its crust shatteringly crisp. Sweet cold butter. There is magic in the way they come together in your mouth to make a single perfect bite."--Ruth Reichl

6 apples; peeled and cored
1/2 cup brown sugar; packed
1/3 cup butter
1-1/3 cups hot water

Sift together flour, baking powder and salt; cut in shortening. Add milk; stir to form soft dough. On a lightly floured board, knead to shape then roll out to 1/8-inch thickness. Cut into 6 squares, about 6-7 inches each, place an apple on each square. Top each apple with a little sugar, a dab of butter and a generous sprinkling of cinnamon. Bring dough up to cover apple and pinch edges to seal. Place in greased pan, sealed edges under.
