Step 1

Preheat oven to 375°F. In a large bowl, combine 2 cups flour and salt; cut in the shortening until crumbly. Combine egg yolk and 1/2 cup milk; gradually add to crumb mixture, tossing with a fork until a ball forms. Divide in half. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes or until easy to handle. (Meanwhile this is a good time to peel and slice the apples.)

Step 2

On a lightly floured surface, roll each portion into a 13-in X 9-in. rectangle. Line a 13X9 baking pan with one rectangle.

Step 3

In a large bowl, combine the apples, sugar, cinnamon and remaining 5 tablespoons flour. Arrange apples over pastry. Top with remaining pasty; cut slits in top. In a small bowl, beat egg white and 1/2 teaspoon water until foamy; brush over pastry.

Step 4

Bake for 35-40 minutes or until golden brown. Cool for 5 minutes on a wire rack, In a bowl, combine confectioners sugar, butter and remaining milk; drizzle over bars.

Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



Made for the DH for his smoko (morning and afternoon tea breaks) and he very much enjoyed the filling but felt the pastry was too thin and a little tough, that may have been my fault it being tough as I left it in the fridge longer than I should have and it was very hard to roll, he has requested I make it again but in a small slice pan so the pastry will be thicker. I got 15 good size squares out of it.

These are wonderful, especially topped with vanilla ice cream. Made as directed using a combination of apples (granny smith and gala) for a wonderful dessert that we all enjoyed. Thanks for sharing!
