Flaky apple pie bars


2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

2 tablespoons white sugar

2 egg yolks

1/2 cup milk

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 cup shortening

2 egg whites

9 apple – peeled, cored and sliced

3/4 cup white sugar

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar

1 pinch salt

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

3 tablespoons milk


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9×13 inch pan.

In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, 2 tablespoons of sugar, and salt. Cut in the shortening until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Combine the egg yolks and 1/2 cup of milk, stir into the flour mixture.

On a lightly floured surface, roll half of the dough out to the size of the prepared pan. Cover the inside of the pan with the dough. Spread dough with a light coating of egg white. Fill with sliced apples and sprinkle sugar and cinnamon on top. Roll out remaining dough and place on top of apples. Brush with a light coating of egg white.

Bake for 35 to 40 minutes in the preheated oven, until the crust is golden. In a small bowl, beat together the confectioners’ sugar, salt, vanilla and milk until smooth. Drizzle over cooled bars, cut into squares.
