  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). In a large bowl, combine 3 cups flour, baking powder and salt. Cut in shortening to the consistency of coarse crumbs. Stir in 1 cup cold milk slowly until completely blended. Separate dough into two balls. Roll out one ball of dough to fit a 15 x 10 inch pan with some dough extending over the edge of the pan.
  2. In a large bowl, combine sliced apples, sugar, cinnamon and 2 tablespoons flour. Place filling in an even layer over prepared crust. Thinly slice 1/2 cup butter and evenly distribute over the apples. Roll out the remaining dough and place over the apple filling. Seal edges and prick the top all over with a fork.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes. Cool 5 minutes before frosting.
  4. To make the frosting: In a small bowl, combine confectioners' sugar, 3 tablespoons milk, 1/3 cup butter and vanilla extract. Beat until smooth and creamy.

This is not a cake, but a pie, and oh what a pie! I didn't have the 10 X 15 pan, so I used a 9 X 13 cake pan. I did not take time to do the icing, either, and doubled the amount of cinnamon. ...

This is a kick butt recipe I love it(so does everyone else)! I made it in a 9X13 Baking pan instead, baking time is the same, makes it a little thicker. Added a 1/4 cup sugar and 1 tsp cinnamo...
