Crust
1 1/4
cups Gold Medal® all-purpose flour
2
tablespoons sugar
1/4
teaspoon salt
1/2
cup firm butter or margarine, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
3
tablespoons cold water

Filling and Topping
1/2
cup sugar
3
tablespoons Gold Medal® all-purpose flour
4
cups chopped peeled apples (4 medium)
1
tablespoon sugar
1/2
teaspoon ground cinnamon
1
cup caramel topping
  1. In medium bowl, mix 1 1/4 cups flour, 2 tablespoons sugar and the salt. Cut in butter, using pastry blender (or pulling 2 table knives through ingredients in opposite directions), until particles are size of small peas. In small bowl, mix water and vanilla; sprinkle over flour mixture, 1 tablespoon at a time, tossing with fork until all flour is moistened and dough almost cleans side of bowl (up to 1 tablespoon more water can be added if necessary).
  2. Gather dough into a ball; shape into flattened 5-inch round on lightly floured surface. Wrap in plastic wrap; refrigerate about 30 minutes or until firm.
  3. Heat oven to 400°F. With floured rolling pin, roll pastry into 12-inch round. Place on ungreased large cookie sheet.
  4. In large bowl, mix 1/2 cup sugar and 3 tablespoons flour. Stir in apples until coated. Mound apple mixture on center of dough round to within 2 inches of edge. Fold edge of dough over apple mixture; crimp edge of dough slightly. In small bowl, mix 1 tablespoon sugar and the cinnamon; sprinkle over apples and dough.
  5. Bake 27 to 32 minutes or until crust is golden brown. Cut into wedges. Serve warm drizzled with caramel topping.
