Combine flour and salt; cut in shortening with a pastry blender until mixture is crumbly. Sprinkle the ice-cold water, 1 Tbsp at a time, evenly over surface; stir with a fork until dry ingredients are moistened. Shape into a ball; chill.
Peel and core apples; cut each apple into 8 wedges. Sprinkle with lemon juice and set aside.
Roll pastry into a 10 x 16-inch rectangle on a floured surface. Cut into 32 - 10 x 1/2 inch strips.
Wrap 1 strip diagonally around each apple wedge. Arrange in a greased 13x9x2-inch baking pan. Brush with melted butter.
Combine sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over wedges. Pour the water around wedges.
