2 1/2 c. flour
1 tsp. salt
1 c. shortening
1 egg yolk, mixed with enough milk to make 2/3 c. of liquid (save the egg white)
1 c. crushed corn flakes
4-6 large apples, peeled and sliced
1 c. sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon


1 c. powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 T. water

Mix flour and salt together and cut in the shortening. Add liquid to make soft dough. Refrigerate 1-2 hours. Roll 1/2 of the dough out to fit a cookie sheet. Top with crushed corn flakes, apples, sugar and cinnamon. Roll the other 1/2 of dough and put on top of apples as you would a pie crust. Beat egg white and brush over crust. Bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour at 350 degrees. Cool, but while still warm top with glaze. For the glaze, mix together powdered sugar, vanilla and water.
