  • 1 ⅛ cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 tablespoon white sugar

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ½ cup butter, cut into pieces

  • 2 tablespoons ice water, or as needed

  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract


  • ¼ cup brown sugar, or more to taste

  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour

  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 5 apples - peeled, cored, and sliced

  • 2 tablespoons butter, cut into pieces

  • 1 tablespoon coarse sugar crystals (Optional)


  1. Make pastry: Whisk flour, white sugar, and salt together in a bowl. Press butter pieces into flour mixture with your fingers until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

  2. Make a well in the center of flour mixture. Pour water and vanilla into the well; quickly work water and vanilla into flour to create a loose dough, adding more water if dough is crumbly. You should be able to squeeze it in your hand and have it stay together but be a bit crumbly. Shape dough into a flat disc, wrap in plastic, and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

  3. Make filling: Stir brown sugar, flour, and cinnamon together in a bowl. Add apples and toss to coat. Let sit for flavors to blend, about 10 minutes.

  4. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).

  5. Roll dough into a large, rough circle on a baking stone or sheet. Pour apple mixture into the center of dough, leaving a 2-inch uncovered border. Dot apples with 1 tablespoon butter.

  6. Fold edges of dough up over apples, leaving an opening in the center. Dot dough with remaining 1 tablespoon butter and sprinkle coarse sugar over dough.

  7. Bake in the preheated oven until crust is crisp and golden and apples are tender and caramelized, 40 to 45 minutes.
