12 cups thinly sliced peeled Fuji apple (about 4 pounds)
2/3 cup sugar, divided
2 tablespoons butter, melted
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
½ cup water
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 cup chilled butter, cut into small pieces
1 cup low-fat buttermilk

1. Preheat oven to 375°.
2. Weigh or lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine 2.25 ounces flour (about ½ cup), apple, 1/3 cup sugar, 2 tablespoons butter, vanilla, ½ teaspoon salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a large bowl, tossing well. Spoon into a large cast-iron Dutch oven. Add ½ cup water.
3. Combine remaining 4.5 ounces flour (about 1 cup), remaining 1/3 cup sugar, remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, and baking powder in a medium bowl; cut in 1/4 cup butter with a pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse meal.
