    Cool Apple Pie Bars

    APPLE PIE BARS

    This is the only one of the many wonderful recipes that my mother handed
    down to me. These delicious bars with their flaky crust and scrumptious
    fruit filling are the perfect way to serve apple pie to a crowd.

    4 cups all-purpose flour
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    1 cup shortening
    4 egg yolks
    2 tablespoons lemon juice
    8 to 10 tablespoons cold water

    FILLING:
    7 cups finely chopped peeled apples
    2 cups sugar
    1/4 cup all-purpose flour
    2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
    Dash ground nutmeg

    GLAZE:
    1 cup confectioners' sugar
    1 tablespoon milk
    1 tablespoon lemon juice

    In a large bowl, combine flour, salt and baking powder. Cut in
    shortening until mixture resembles coarse 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 mins. Roll out one portion of dough between two large sheets of waxed
    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 of pan; trim pastry even with top edge. In a large bowl, toss the
    apples, sugar, flour, cinnamon and nutmeg; spread over crust. Roll out
    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 mins or until golden brown. Cool on a
    wire rack. Combine glaze ingredients until smooth; drizzle over bars
    before cutting.

    Yield: about 2 dozen.
