Apple Pie Bars

4 cups all purpose flour

1 tsp salt

1 tsp baking powder

1 cup shortening

4 egg yolks

2 tbsp lemon juice

8 to 10 tbsp cold water


7 cups finely chopped peeled apples

2 cups sugar

1/4 cup all purpose flour

2 tsp ground cinnamon

dash of ground nutmeg


1 cup confectioner's sugar

1 tbsp milk

1 tbsp 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 flour to 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 waxed paper into a 17X12 rectangle.  Transfer into an ungreased 15X10 baking pan.  Press pastry onto the bottom and up the sides.  Trim pastry even with top edge. 

In a bowl, toss the apples, sugar, flour, cinnamon and nut meg; 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 375F for 40-45 minutes or until golden brown.  Cool on a wire rack.  Combine glaze ingredients until smooth; drizzle over bars before cutting.  Yield: About 2 dozen.
