These apple pie squares will have everyone reaching for seconds. The surprise ingredient: Cornflakes!

Apple Pie Squares

2 1/2 cups of flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup shortening or butter
1 egg yolk (save egg white)
Corn Flakes
8 medium apples, peeled and sliced thinly
1 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Mix flour, salt and shortening. (I used my Kitchen Aid mixer with the dough hook attachment initially, then gently finished hand-mixing.) Put egg yolk in a cup, stir with fork, and add milk to make 2/3 cup. Pour into flour mixture and mix all together to make dough.

Roll out 1/2 of the dough and place on a jelly roll pan (cookie sheet). Place 2 handfuls of corn flakes on crust. Then add 8 grated or thinly sliced apples. Sprinkle 1 cup white sugar mixed with 1 teaspoon cinnamon over apples. Roll out the rest of dough and place on top.

Beat egg white until foamy (1 - 2 minutes) and brush on top of crust.

Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.

Drizzle with glaze after slightly cooled, but still warm.

1 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon water (or just enough to make a thick pouring consistency)
