Chicago Style Apple Slices

2 1/2 c. flour
1 c. Crisco
1 t. salt
1 T sugar
1 egg yolk and enough milk to make 3/4 c liquid


Blend dry ingredients with pastry blender, like for a pie crust. Add liquid to dry ingredients, mix thoroughly (use wooden spoon). Put in wax paper, refrigerate at least 1/2 hour.

Mix 2 cans of pie sliced apples (not Pie filling) with 1 c sugar, and 1 t cinnamon.

Roll out 1/2 of the dough between 2 sheets of wax paper. Fit into the bottom of a 9 1/2 x 13 1/2 x 1/2 pan. Let dough lap over the edges. Into this sprinkle 1/2 c crushed corn flakes. Add apples, spreading evenly. Then roll other half of dough, cover and pinch all edges together. Beat egg white, brush on top. Bake in 400 oven for 1 hour. Glaze with thin icing of powdered sugar and water while hot.
