Ingredients:

1 tsp. salt
1 c. shortening

Directions:
For pastry dough, stir together the flour and salt. Using a pastry blender, cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Lightly beat egg yolk in a measuring cup. Add enough milk to egg yolk to make 2/3 cup total liquid; mix well. Stir egg yolk mixture into flour mixture, mix well. Divide dough in half.
On a lightly floured surface, roll half of the dough to an 18 x 12 rectangle. To transfer pastry, wrap it around the roling pin; unroll into an ungreased 15 x 10 x 1 inch baking pan. (Pastry will hang over edges of pan) Sprinkle pastry in pan with cornflakes; top with apples. In a small bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over apples. Roll remaining dough to a 16 x 12 inch rectangle; place over apples. Seal edges, cut slits in top for steam to escape. In a small bowl, beat egg white and the water; brush onto pastry.
Bake at 375 for about 50 minutes or until golden brown. Cool in pan or a wire rack. If desired frost with a powdered sugar glaze or dust with powdered sugar.
