Favorite Apple Pie Bars

2 1/2 cups flour
1 Tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. salt
Mix well and cut in 1cup of shortening. In a 2/3 measuring cup place the egg yolk and add enough milk to make 2/3 cup. Add to flour mixture. Roll out half of the dough and fit into a 11x15 jelly roll pan.

2/3 cup crushed corn flakes
Sprinkle the flakes on top of the bottom crust.
Then add:
5 cups sliced apples (add a little more)
Sprinkle over the apple slices, 1 tsp. cinnamon mixed with 1 1/2
cups sugar.

Place upper crust on top. Seal seams and randomly cut slits
into crust. Beat remaining egg white and brush on upper crust.

Bake at 400 for 45 minutes. ***She checks hers after 30 minutes for golden color and apple tenderness. Continue baking until desired doneness.

Glaze: While warm, glaze with a mixture of 1 cup powdered sugar and a little lemon juice or milk.

When I have made this one I have always added more apples and I have never added the corn flakes. They freeze well!
