2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup shortening
1 egg yolk
1 cup cornflakes
8 to 10 tart cooking apples, peeled cored and sliced (8 cups)
¾ to 1 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 egg white, lightly beaten
1 cup powdered sugar
3 to 4 teaspoons milk
1. In a large bowl, combine flour and salt. Using a pastry blender, cut in shortening until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. In a liquid measuring cup, beat egg yolk lightly. Add enough milk to make 2/3 cup liquid. Stir well to combine. Stir milk mixture into flour mixture with a fork until combined. Mixture will be sticky. Divide the dough in half.
2. On a floured board, roll half of the dough out to a large rectangle. Transfer to a large rectangle pan, such as 15x10x1 inch. Press to fit bottom and sides of pan. Sprinkle the bottom with cornflakes. Top evenly with apples and top with the sugar and cinnamon. (I usually mix the apples with the sugar & cinnamon in a bowl and then place it on the cornflakes.)
3. Roll out the remaining dough mixture and place atop of the apples. Crimp to make a pretty edge and brush with egg white that has been beaten.
4. Bake at 375 degrees for 50 minutes.
5. In a small bowl, combine powdered sugar and 2 to 3 teaspoons of milk to drizzle over apple slices. Makes approximately 32 bars.
