Apple Pie Bars Recipe
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, salt, and baking soda. Cut-in 1 cup vegetable shortening. Separate the eggs. Place egg yolks in a one cup measuring cup and add milk to the egg yolks until milk and egg yolks equal 2/3 cups.
  • Blend the egg mixture into flour mixture until it reaches a dough consistency.
  • Divide the dough in half. Roll out 1/2 of the dough to fit the bottom of the jelly roll pan. The crust will be very thin.
  • Cover crust with crushed corn flakes. Cover corn flakes with prepared apple slices.
  • In separate bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle evenly over apple slices.
  • Roll out the remaining dough and cover the apple mixture with it. The dough will be very thin.
  • Beat remaining egg whites until they appear semi-stiff. Brush the crust with the egg whites.
  • Bake for 35 to 40 minutes. Remove from oven.
  • In a small bowl, combine powdered sugar and lemon juice for glaze. Blend until smooth. Adjust consistency (add lemon juice if too dry; add powdered sugar if too runny).
  • Drizzle glaze over the top of the warm bars.
  • Bars can be served warm or cold, and they freeze well, too.
