Ingredients

  • 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup shortening
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 egg, separated
  • 1 cup crushed cornflakes
  • 6 medium tart apples, peeled and thinly sliced

  • Additional sugar, optional
  • GLAZE:
  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

In a bowl, combine flour and salt. Cut in shortening until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Combine milk and egg yolk; mix well. Gradually add to dry ingredients until dough forms a ball. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
On a lightly floured surface, roll out half of pastry to fit an ungreased 13-in. pizza pan. Sprinkle with cornflakes. Top with apples. Combine sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over apples. Roll out remaining pastry to fit top of pie. Place over apples; cut slits in top. Seal pastry and flute edges if desired. Brush with beaten egg white. Sprinkle with additional sugar if desired. Bake at 350° for 40-45 minutes or until golden.
For glaze, combine confectioners' sugar, vanilla and enough water to achieve desired consistency. Drizzle over pizza. Yield: 12-16 servings.
