Directions

  1. In a bowl, combine flour and salt; cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Combine egg yolk and milk; add to flour mixture. Stir just until dough clings together. Divide dough in half.
  2. On a lightly floured surface, roll half of dough into a 15-in. x 10-in. rectangle; transfer to a greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan. Set aside.
  3. In a bowl, toss together filling ingredients; spoon over pastry in pan. Roll out remaining dough into another 15-in. x 10-in. rectangle. Place over filling. Brush with egg white. Bake at 375° for 40 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack.
  4. For glaze, combine the confectioners' sugar and enough water to achieve a drizzling consistency. Drizzle over warm pastry. Cut into squares. Serve warm or cold. Yield: 20-24 servings.

MY REVIEW

"Tried this recipe today it came out great! I used a smaller pan to cook it in, I used a 13X5 casserole dish. I also used butter in place of the shorting. I ended up having to cook it about 15 to 20 minutes longer also. Great recipe, thank you for sharing!"

MY REVIEW

"I made this for a community event this afternoon - great! Before I started, I wondered how I would do rolling out such a large crust, but had no problem. I might have patched a bit on one side but it still looked good. Six cups of apples were just the right amount. Instead of the 2 Tbsp. of flour, I used 3 Tbsp. of Pie Enhancer (by King Arthur Flour) to ensure my filling would be set perfectly. The glaze on top was a nice touch. Only one thing - I don't think 'Apple Danish' is the correct name for this. How about 'Apple Pie Squares'? Seems like a better description of the dish to me. Anyway, definitely baking this again!"

"My recipe for this is exactly the same except for the glaze. My glaze calls for 1 1/2 c. powdered sugar, 1/8 tsp. salt , 1 tsp. vanilla and 2-3 tbsp. milk. Always a favorite whenever I serve it."

"My family loved it! The only thing about it was the egg white on top of the crust. If your crust isn't completely flat, then you'll get a puddle of cooked egg on there, and without the egg white the crust is crumby. I will be making this again!"
