Posted by Jennifer (the student) on October 20, 2012

 

This recipe is from my classmate Judy. She is going to school to become a DTR. Judy’s mom always makes this at the beginning of fall and at Christmas every year. Judy says, “this dish always makes her feel warm and happy!” 🙂

Ingredients:

  • 2 1/2 cups sifted flour
  • 1 T. sugar
  • 1 egg (separated)
  • 2/3 cup crushed corn flakes
  • 5 cups sliced, peeled, apples
  • 1 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 t. cinnamon
  • 1 t. salt
  • 1 cup Crisco
  • ½ cup + 1 ½ TBSP milk

 

Instructions for Glaze:

Glaze: 1 cup confectioner sugar, add lemon juice to make a thin glaze.

Instructions for Apples:

Sift together: sugar, flour, salt. Cut Crisco in with pastry blender. Put egg yolk into measuring cup, and add milk to make 2/3 cup.

Add: milk and egg yolk to lard mixture; mix just enough so dough shapes into a ball. Roll out half of dough to 15 x 11 rectangle, transfer to baking sheet. Cover with corn flakes, then with apple slices, which have been sprinkled with sugar and cinnamon. Roll out other half of dough for top crust; place over apples; pinch edges together.

Beat egg white until stiff and spread on top crust. Bake in hot oven 400 degrees for 40 minutes.

While hot, drizzle glaze over top.
