Yield: 8 servings
- 2-1/3 cups flour
- 1 cup sugar
- 4 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 sticks butter, at room temperature
- 2 eggs, at room temperature
- 4 large (2 pounds) Rome or Northern Spy apples
- 1/4 cup plus 1 teaspoon sugar

Instructions:Preheat oven to 350° and position oven rack on the center shelf.
To make the dough, sift dry ingredients into the bowl of an electric mixer. Add butter and eggs and mix at medium-high speed until ingredients form a ball, approximately 1 minute. Divide dough into two equal pieces, wrap each in plastic wrap, and chill 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, peel, core, and slice apples into 1/4-inch pieces. Add 1/4 cup sugar and lemon juice and stir. Press one ball of dough into a 10-inch deep-dish pie plate. Cover with the apple mixture. Top the apple mixture with small dabs of jam. Divide the remaining dough into 10 equal-size balls and distribute evenly on top of apples. Sprinkle with the remaining 1 teaspoon sugar and cinnamon. Bake 40 minutes, or until dough is golden brown. Remove to a cooling rack. Serve with a dollop of sweetened whipped cream and garnish with cinnamon-sugar, if desired.
