How to Make Apple Pie Bars


  1. Beat yolk in bowl. Add 1/2 cup milk; mix well. Set aside.
  2. Combine flour and salt in bowl; cut in butter with pastry blender or fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
    Stir in egg yolk mixture with fork until dough forms a ball. Divide dough in half.
  3. Roll out half of dough on lightly floured surface into a 15 X 10 inch rectangle; place onto bottom of ungreased 15 X 10 inch baking pan.
    Sprinkle with corn flakes; top with apples.
  4. Combine 1 cup sugar, 1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon and nutmeg in bowl.
    Sprinkle over apples.
    Roll remaining half of dough into 15 1/2 X 10 1/2inch rectangle; place over apples.
  5. Beat reserved egg white with fork until foamy; brush over top crust.
    Combine remaining 1/2 tsp. cinnamon and 2 tbsp. sugar in bowl; sprinkle over crust.
    Bake at 350 degrees for 45-60 minutes or until lightly browned.
  6. Combine powdered sugar, vanilla and enough milk for desired glazing consistency in bowl.
    Drizzle over warm bars.
  7. If pastry dough does not form a ball easily, add up to 1 tbsp. additional milk, 1 tsp. at a time.
  8. To transfer pastry to baking pan, fold pastry in half; fold in half again. Place folded corner at center of pan. Unfold pastry carefully.
  9. Top pastry should be rolled on lightly floured surface slightly larger than bottom pastry to allow pastry to cover filling easily.
