Butter a 9” x 13” baking pan, an extra-large deep-dish pie dish, or two round 8” cake pans. Prepare wet ingredients: In a measuring cup, beat together the egg, 1/2 tsp vanilla, and enough milk to make 1/2 cup. Prepare dry ingredients: In a food processor, combine flour, baking powder, salt, and 3 tbsp sugar. Add cold, cubed butter and pulse until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Combine wet and dry ingredients: Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and use the food processor to mix until just combined. Spread dough: Turn out the dough into the buttered baking pan and gently press it evenly to the edges. Add apple layer: Peel and slice enough apples to evenly cover the dough. Layer the apples on top of the dough. Prepare cinnamon sugar: In a separate bowl, mix 1 cup sugar, 2 tsp cinnamon, and 3 tbsp melted butter. Sprinkle this mixture over the apples. Bake: Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes or until the top is golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Enjoy this festive Christmas breakfast treat! You can serve it warm with a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream for an extra special touch. You can find more holiday recipes and crafts on our farm blog!
