Apple Pie Bars

(Served at the ward Carnival July 2003)

2 ½ c flour
1 ½ T cinnamon
1 t salt
½ t nutmeg
1 c butter, chilled or shortening
1 egg
2/3 c milk
1 c confectioners sugar
10 c sliced apples
1 ½ t milk
1 c white sugar
½ t vanilla extract

In a medium bowl, stir together flour and salt. Cut in the butter or shortening until mixture is mealy. With a fork, stir in 2/3 c milk and egg. Dough should form a ball. If sticky, add a little more flour. Divide dough into two equal parts. On a lightly floured surface, roll out one piece of dough into a large rectangle. Place on the bottom of a 11x15 jelly roll pan.
Place sliced apples on dough. Stir together white sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. Sprinkle over the apple layer. Roll out the other half of the dough and place over apple slices. Seal edges.
Bake at 350* for 45 minutes to one hour. Top crust should be lightly browned. Mix together the confectioners sugar, milk, and vanilla until smooth. Drizzle glaze over bars while still warm.
