Apple Sheet Cake
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup shortening
1 cup milk
3 pounds apples – peeled, cored and sliced
1 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 cup butter
2 1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar
3 tablespoons milk
1/3 cup butter, softened
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
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.
