Sift flour, salt, and ground cloves into a large bowl. Cut in the butter until the mixture has the consistency of fine crumbs.
Peel, core, and slice the apples. Add the apples and sugar to the flour mixture. Stir in the eggs and enough milk to leave the dough stiff. Turn the dough into the prepared pan. Sprinkle with the remaining sugar.
