1 1/2 C flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 C shortening
4 to 5 Tbsp. ice water
4 to 6 apples, peeled, cored, and shredded
3/4 C sugar
1/4 C firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 C butter or margarine, melted
2 C water
cream or ice cream (optional)
1. Combine flour and salt in mixing bowl, cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse meal. Sprinkle ice water evenly over surface; stir with fork until dry ingredients are moistened. Shape into ball, chill one hour.
2. Roll dough out onto a lightly floured surface to a 12-by-8-inch rectangle. Spread apples on top of dough, leaving a 1/2″ margin all the way around. Roll up like a jelly roll, starting on long side. Slice into 1 1/2″ rings. Set aside.
3. Combine sugar, butter, and 2 C water in a 12x8x2 inch pan or a 10×10 inch pan; bake at degrees until mixture is hot and bubbly. Place apple rings in mixture and sprinkle with cinnamon. Bake for 45 minutes. Serve with whipped cream or ice cream, if desired.
