This recipe is typical of American cuisine.
For the pastry, combine the flour, salt, and baking powder in the bowl of a food processor fitted with the metal blade.
Add the butter and pulse about 20 times to mix the butter in finely.
Add the eggs and yolks and pulse until the dough just begins to form a ball, but no longer. Invert the dough to a floured surface and carefully remove the blade. Use your hands to press the dough into a disk about 1/2-inch thick. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate the dough for at least an hour or up to 2 days.
For the filling, melt the butter in a large pan with a cover.
Add apples and sprinkle with the sugars and cinnamon. Cover pan and cook over medium heat for 5 minutes, until apples have exuded juices. Uncover and continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until apples are tender. About a third will have disintegrated, and the rest of the apple slices should remain intact. Cool the filling. May be made several days in advance and stored, covered, in the refrigerator.
To form the pie, preheat the oven to 375°F and set a rack in the lowest level.
Roll dough to about a 16-inch diameter and center on pan. Spoon filling into center of disk of dough and fold overhanging dough in toward center of pie.
Brush the top of the folded-over dough with the egg wash and sprinkle with the sugar.
Bake the pie about 40 minutes, until the dough is a golden color and the filling is bubbling. Cool on a rack.
