  1. In a large mixing bowl stir together the flour and the salt. Cut in shortening till the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Lightly beat egg yolk in a glass measuring cup. Add milk to make 2/3 cup liquid total; mix well. Divide dough in half.
  2. On a floured surface, roll half the dough to an 18 x 12 inch rectangle; fit into and up sides of a 15 x 10 x 1 inch baking pan.
  3. Sprinkle with corn flake cereal; top with apples. Combine sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over apples.
  4. Roll remaining dough to a 16 x 12 inch rectangle; place over apples. Seal edges; cut slits in the top for steam to escape. Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for about 50 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack.

I love these! Here's some tips, to make them even better, since a few of the ingredients remain with no instructions. Roll your dough between to lightly floured pieces of plastic wrap, makes transferring to a pan so much easier! Use 4 different kinds of apples like granny smith, golden delicious, honeycrisp and fuji. Put little pats of butter scattered over the apples before you put the cinnamon and sugar over them. Beat the eggwhite until stiff, and brush over the top of crust before baking. Mix 1 c. powdered sugar, 2 T butter, and water to glaze over the top when it's still warm! YUM!



These are delicious. I've had this recipe for years and was happy to find it here. The directions, however, are incomplete. You need to whip the egg white until it's frothy, then brush it on the dough before baking. I made the powdered sugar into a glaze and drizzled it over the top. Yummy!



These were the best dessert bars I've ever tasted! There really was nothing to change about the recipe even though I always look for ways to make recipes better. This one was perfect as written. This is one recipe I wouldn't recommend passing on!
