Glazed Apple Pie Squares

Courtesy of Taste of Home

- 2 1/2 cups flour
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1 cup cold butter
- 1 egg, seperated
- 3 to 4 tbsp. milk
- 1 cup crushed cornflakes
- 9 cups thinly sliced peeled tart apples (about 10 medium)
- 1 cup plus 2 tbsp. sugar, divided
- 2 tsp. ground cinnamon, divided
- 1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
- 1 cup icing sugar
- 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1 to 2 tbsp. milk

1. In a large bowl, combine flour and salt; cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. In a measuring cup, combine egg yolk and enough milk to measure 1/3 cup. Gradually add to the flour mixture, tossing with a fork until dough forms a ball.
2. Divide dough in half.  Roll one portion into a thin 15x10 inch rectangle.  Transfer to the bottom of an ungreased 15x10x1 inch baking pan.  Sprinkle with cornflakes.  In a large bowl, combine the apples, 1 cup sugar, 1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon and nutmeg; toss to coat.  Spoon over crust.
3. Roll remaining dough into a thin 15x10 inch rectangle; place over apple filling.  Beat egg white; brush over pastry.  Combine remaining sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over the top.  Bake at 350 for 45-50 minutes or until golden brown.
4. For glaze, combine icing sugar, vanilla and enough milk to achieve a drizzling consistency.  Drizzle over warm pastry.  Cool completely on a wire rack.  Cut into squares.



  1. Hey. How'd they turn out? Were they good? Were they easy to make? Hope you're feeling better.

  2. They tasted really good. Making the crust was difficult, but it was worth it. Seemed like everyone at church enjoyed them, I only brought 2 bars home.
