1. Preheat Cuisinart® Convection Microwave Oven with Grill to 350°F on the convection setting. Roll out ½ of the dough into a 10-inch disc. Fit into a 9-inch, 1½ quart pie plate. Chill in the refrigerator for about 20 minutes.
2. Roll out remaining dough into a 10-inch disc on a piece of parchment. Cut into ¼ to ½ inch strips. Chill in refrigerator until needed. In a large bowl, toss together the apples, lemon juice, vanilla, and sugar together.
3. Arrange the apples in layers in the reserved pie plate. Make an egg wash by mixing the egg, yolk and salt together with a fork. Brush on the outer rim of the crust. Using the reserved pastry strips, weave the strips into a lattice-work design over the apples. Brush lattice with egg wash.
4. Bake on the grill rack in the lower rack position for 40 to 50 minutes, or until the top of the pie is a dark golden brown.
