Cookie Sheet Apple Pie


6 cups all-purpose flour
1-1/2 teaspoons salt

1-1/2 cups shortening
6 egg yolks
3/4 cup plus 4-1/2 teaspoons water
3 tablespoons lemon juice
8 cups sliced peeled tart apples
1-1/2 cups sugar
1 cup crushed cornflakes
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 egg white, lightly beaten


~In a large bowl, combine the flour, salt, and baking powder. Cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

~Whisk the egg yolks, water, and lemon juice; gradually add to flour mixture, tossing with a fork until dough forms a ball. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

~Divide dough in half so that one portion is slightly larger than the other. On a lightly floured surface, roll out larger portion to fit the bottom and sides of a greased 15x10x1-inch baking pan.

~Arrange apples over crust. Combine the sugar, cornflakes, cinnamon and nutmeg; sprinkle over apples.

~Roll out remaining dough to fit top of pie; place over apples. Seal edges; cut slits in top. Brush with egg white.

~Bake at 400° for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350°; bake 20-25 minutes longer or until golden brown.

~Makes 20 servings.
