We have become huge apple pie fans ever since we moved into this house of ours that has two huge apple trees. Our favorite thing to make are these Apple pie bars. They are so much better than apple pie! My favorite part is the pastry part, its a lot thicker and moist than regular pie crust so it gives it a richer texture and taste. Yum!
2-3/4 cups flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter
Milk (about 2/3 cup)
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
favorite apple pie filling
1. In a medium-size bowl, stir together the flour and salt. Mash the butter into the flour until the mixture is crumbly. Separate the egg yolk and white, reserving both parts. Beat the yolk in a liquid measuring cup, then add enough milk to measure 2/3 cup and blend well. Stir together the yolk-milk mixture and flour mixture until the ingredients form a sticky dough.
2.Halve the dough and flatten each half into a 3/4-inch-thick disk. Cover the disks in plastic wrap and refrigerate them until well chilled, at least 30 minutes.
3.Heat the oven to 350 f. degrees.
4.On a sheet of waxed paper, roll one portion of dough into a 15-1/2- by 10-1/2-inch rectangle. Transfer the dough to an un-greased 15- by 10-inch baking sheet.
5. Spread a thick layer of your favorite apple pie filling on the bottom layer of the pastry dough.
