You will Need 3 c. sifted flour4 eggs, beaten (separate 2 beaten eggs and 2 beaten eggs)1/2 c. warm water2 tbsp. melted butter3 lb. lg. McIntosh apples (Granny Smith work)7-9 tsp. sugar4 tsp. bread crumbsCinnamon1/4 lb. melted butter
Let’s Begin In three cups sifted flour make well. Add 2 beaten eggs. Mix with wire beater.
Add 1/2 cup warm water and 1 tablespoon melted butter. Mix well with spoon and knead with fingers for about 2 minutes, adding flour as needed to prevent sticking, and making it into a ball. Put dough in a bowl covered with a dish towel and set aside in a warm place (I use my oven which is warm because of the pilot light. Don't light oven until much later on). This whole procedure is quite time consuming and takes about 1 1/2 hours to prepare. Let dough "rest" while peeling and slicing:
3 pounds large McIntosh apples. (Pick largest apples you can find to facilitate peeling procedure.) Peel and Slice thinly
STEP TWO: Cut dough in half. Put half back in bowl covered with dish towel in warm place. On top of a well floured cloth tablecloth roll out 1/2 dough. Drizzle on 1 tablespoon melted butter spreading all over rolled out dough.
Pick up rolled out dough and "stretch" as much as possible (just like a pizza dough is stretched, making fists with hands to prevent making too many holes in dough -- usually a hole or two appears which is not unusual). Put back on well floured tablecloth. Next tray to achieve a paper thin dough by pulling all around and around it with the fingers. Don't worry if there are a few holes here and there.
STEP THREE: Using HALF of the thinly sliced apples, spread them all uniformly over dough that you covered the tablecloth with. Sprinkle on top of apples: 7 to 9 teaspoons sugar according to taste and depending on tartness of apples -- 4 teaspoons bread crumbs -- sift cinnamon all over above- drizzle on 1/4 pound melted butter -- also 2 beaten eggs spreading the eggs with a fork in a circular motion. Pick up the tablecloth and make a long roll and carefully lift roll into a large ungreased shallow baking pan. If you prefer you may put the roll into a pie plate starting in the middle and making a circle with the roll.
