4 c all purpose flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1 c shortening
4 egg yolks
2 tbsp lemon juice
8 to 10 tbsp cold water

7 c finely chopped peeled apples
2 c sugar
1/4 c all purpose flour
2 tsp cinnamon
dash of nutmeg

1 c confectioners' sugar
1 tbsp milk
1 tbsp lemon juice

In large bowl, combine flour, salt and baking powder. Cut in shortening until mixture resembles course crumbs. In a small bowl, whisk egg yolks, lemon juice and water; gradually add to flour mixture, tossing with a fork until dough forms a ball. Divide in half. Chill for 30 minutes.
Roll out one portion of dough between two large sheets of wax paper into a 17 in x 12 in rectangle. Transfer to an ungreased 15 in x 10 in x 1 in baking pan. Press pastry onto the bottom and up the sides on pan; trim pastry even with top edge.
In a bowl, toss the apples, sugar, flour, cinnamon and nutmeg; spread over crust. Roll our remaining pastry to fit top of pan; place over filling. Trim edges; brush edges between pastry with water or milk; pinch to seal. Cut slits in top. Bake at 375 for 45-50 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack. Combine glaze ingredients until smooth; drizzle over bars before cutting.
