Marge & Tim Rhines - these are a pie type bar. This recipe came to my family from my Aunt Betts Fessler and since then has become a favorite at Rhines' family get togethers.

Ingredients

CRUST

3 c
flour
1 c
lard

FILLING

6 c
sliced apples
1 1/2-2 c
sugar (depending on apple sweetness)
1/2 c
flour
1 tsp
cinnamon

Directions Step-By-Step

1
for crust - blend together flour, lard and salt. Beat 1 egg and add to it enough milk to make 1 cup. Add this to the flour mixture. This dough will be a little sticky.
2
Divide dough in half and roll to fit the bottom of a 10 x 15 cookie sheet with sides.
3
Mix filling and put over crust.
4
Roll out remaining dough for the top crust. Seal the edges and prick top crust with a fork.
5
Bake at 350 for 1 hour or until bubbly and golden brown. After it cools, I like to glaze it with thin powdered sugar icing.
