Glazed Apple Pie Squares-From Taste of Home

You know it is crazy but I have never posted a recipe from the Taste of Home Magazine in which I am a field editor. Taste of Home has some really great recipes and great pictures. Don't you just love pictures to go along with recipes??? I sure do. This recipe comes from the Feb/March 2009 issue. This is What's Cookin on Beaty's Creek on this rainy day.


2-½ cups all-purpose flour
1 T salt
1 cup cold butter-cut into small pieces
1 egg-separated
4 T milk
1 cup crushed cornflakes
1 cup plus 2 T sugar divided
2 t cinnamon
½ t nutmeg (I did not use this)
9 cups thinly sliced peeled Granny Smith apples


1 cup powdered sugar
1 t vanilla
2 T milk

In a large bowl, I used my food processor, combine flour, salt, and butter. Mix together until it resembles cornmeal. In a measuring cup combine egg yolk and enough milk to measure 1/3 cup. Gradually add to flour mixture until dough forms.

Divide dough in half. Roll one portion into a thin 15x10 inch rectangle and place in baking pan. Place on your 15x10x1 inch baking pan and sprinkle with crushed cornflakes
In a large mixing bowl combine apples, cinnamon, nutmeg, and sugar, stir until well coated. Spoon over crust.

Roll remaining dough into a 15x10 rectangle and top apples. Bake at 350’ for 45-50 minutes or until golden brown.

For glaze, combine the powder sugar, vanilla and milk until it achieves a drizzling consistency. Drizzle over warm pastry. Cool completely on a wire rack.
