2 2/3 cups bread flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 package (1/4 ounce or 2 1/4 tsp) FLEISCHMANN'S RapidRise Yeast
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, cut up
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup water
3 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons bread flour
1/4 cup whipping cream
1 tablespoon Calvados (apple brandy) or 2 teaspoons SPICE ISLANDS Pure Vanilla
2 cups thinly sliced, cored and peeled apples (about 2 medium)
1/4 cup apricot preserves, warmed
To make crust:
In large bowl, combine 1 cup flour, sugar, undissolved yeast and salt. Heat
butter, milk, and water until very warm (120 to 130 F). Butter does not need to
melt. Gradually stir into dry ingredients. Stir in eggs and remaining flour to
make soft dough. Knead 5 minutes. (Dough will be buttery; do not add additional
flour.) With floured hands, press dough to form 12-inch circle on lightly
greased pizza pan, cookie sheet or sheet
pan. Cover and let rest 30 minutes.
To make topping: In small bowl, combine sugar and flour. Gradually add cream
and Calvados; stir until smooth. Set aside.
Preheat oven to 400 F.
Form 3/4-inch high rim along edge of dough. Arrange apples on dough,
overlapping slightly; carefully spoon cream mixture over top. Bake on middle
oven rack 18 to 22 minutes or until crust is golden brown and apples are almost
tender. Remove from pan; place on wire rack to cool slightly. Spread apricot
preserves over top.
