- Preheat Oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Butter at 9" x 13" baking dish.
- In a bowl of a mixer, cream the butter and brown sugar together. Add the egg and the vanilla extract and beat well.

- Press dough into the bottom of the baking dish. Set aside.
- Combine apple slices, cinnamon and vanilla extracts, ground cinnamon, sugar, and lemon juice in a bowl.
- Pour the apples over the top of the cookie dough. Set aside.
- In a small bowl, combine the flour, salt, and sugar for the pie crust. Add in the diced butter and rub the butter pieces into the flour with your fingers. Continue to combine butter and flour until the butter pieces are the size of peas.
- Add the ice water to the flour and butter mixture and bring the dough together into a ball. Place in the freezer for 5 minutes.
- Roll out the pie crust to a 1/4 inch thick rectangle. Cut long strips of pie crust and place the strips on top of the apples, making sure to overlap the pieces so that it looks like mummy bandages.
- Dust top with turbinado sugar and then bake for 30-35 minutes or until the apples are cooked and the pie crust is golden brown.
