Assembly: Preheat oven to 425F. On a heavily floured surface, roll out pastry to 16x12" rectangle. Arrange pastry flat on a large baking sheet. Overlap apple slices in 3 lengthwise rows atop pastry, leaving a 1" border of pastry on all sides. Fold edge of pastry up to, and slightly overlapping apples. Press together seams of pastry at corners to seal. Pinch together and cracks in pastry along edges to hold in juices. Sprinkle apples with 2 tb sugar.
