Bring to a boil, cover, reduce heat, and simmer 25 minutes or until apples are almost tender.
Let apples cool.
Dissolve yeast in warm water; let stand 5 minutes.
Combine flour and 2 tablespoons sugar in a medium mixing bowl, cut in butter with a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse meal.
Combine egg, vanilla, and dissolved yeast, stir into flour mixture.
Pat two-thirds of dough in bottom of a greased 9-inch square pan.
Spread apple filling evenly over dough.
Roll remaining one-third of dough into a 9-inch square on a well-floured surface, place over apple mixture, sealing edges to sides of pan.
Bake at 375Â° for 35 minutes, reduce heat to 300Â°, and bake an additional 25 minutes. (Cover edges with foil to prevent overbrowning, if necessary.)
Drizzle with Sugar Glaze.
Serve warm or at room temperature.
