Bottomless Apple Pie

3 apples, peeled, cored, and thinly sliced (I used Gala)
3 tablespoons sugar
1/2 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon flour
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons butter, for dotting
2 tablespoons cinnamon sugar, for sprinkling
1 cup flour
3 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons butter
1 egg
1 tablespoon ice water

1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Grease 8x8" baking dish with butter or margarine. Place sliced apples into a microwave safe dish along with 1 tablespoon of water and microwave 3-5 minutes until apples are tender. Drain excess juices.
2. Add sugar, lemon juice, flour, and cinnamon to apples and stir. Pour mixture into baking dish and dot apples with butter and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
3. In another large bowl, mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Cut in butter until the size of small peas. Whisk egg and water then add to flour mixture to form dough, adding a bit more water if needed.
4. Roll out dough on a lightly floured surface until about 1/4" thick. Cut vent hole then cover apples with pastry.
5. Bake 15-20 minutes until golden brown on top and juices are bubbling.
6. Serve warm with ice cream or whipped topping! Enjoy!

Serves 4-6.
