On a lightly floured surface, roll one part to fit the bottom of an ungreased 13x9x2" baking dish. Place in dish; top with a third of the apple.

Combine sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle a third over apples. Repeat layers of pastry, apples and cinnamon-sugar twice. Roll out remaining dough to fit top of dish and place on top. Using a sharp knife, cut 2 inch slits through all layers at once. For syrup bring water and sugar to a boil.

Cook and stir until sugar is dissolved. Pour over top crust.  Bake at 400F for 35-40 minutes or until browned and bubbly. Serve warm with whipped topping or ice cream if desired. Garnish with mint if desired.
