Christmas Decorations Christmas is a hands-on art. From the lights we put on the house to the decorations we put on the tree to the great foods we eat in the process, Christmas is a time of doing -- and this is the place we gather to talk, plan and share.

Apple Pie Bars

Apple Pie Bars

INGREDIENTS:

Pastry

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon salt

1 cup butter, chilled

1 egg yolk

2/3 cup milk

Filling

1 cup crushed cornflakes cereal

8 cups thinly sliced apples (I used Gala apples)

1 cup white sugar

1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1 egg white

2 tablespoons white sugar

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Glaze

1 cup confectioners' sugar

1 1/2 teaspoons milk

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

DIRECTIONS:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

In a medium bowl, stir together the flour and salt. Cut in the 1 cup butter until mixture is mealy. With a fork, stir in the 2/3 cup milk and egg yolk. Divide dough into 2 equal parts. On a lightly floured

surface, roll out 1 piece of dough into a large rectangle. Place on the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking pan.

Sprinkle cereal over the crust, then layer the apples over the cereal. Stir together the 1 cup of white sugar, and the 1and 1/2 teaspoons of cinnamon and nutmeg; sprinkle over the apple layer. Roll out

the other half of the dough and cover everything in the pan. Brush top crust with the reserved egg white and sprinkle with a mixture of 2 tablespoons sugar, and 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon.

Bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour in the preheated oven. Top crust should be lightly browned. Mix together the 1 cup of confectioners' sugar, 1 and 1/2 tablespoons of milk, and 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla until smooth; drizzle over bars while they are still warm.

They were a big hit. I loved them. I have a really good recipe for cranberry cheesecake bars that I made every year for my coworkers at Thanksgiving. I will post it soon.

Let me know if you like the apple pie bars.
