  2. Sift flour and salt together into a medium bowl. Cut in butter as for pie crust to pea sized pieces. Set aside.
  3. Put warm water and 1 teaspoon sugar in a large bowl. Add yeast. Let dissolve. Add slightly beaten egg yolks to yeast mixture.

  5. Fill with sliced apples, piled high. Sprinkle with mixture of 3/4 cup sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon.
  6. Roll top crust to fit pan. Put top over apples, seal in around pan, tucking top under (do not flute). Do not prick.
