Glazed Apple Pie Squares Recipe

Publisher Photo
These are a really good change from apple pie since they are glazed and a little bit sweeter. The dough is firm enough that you can eat them with your hands and are best when apples are in season. —Diane Turner, Brunswick, Ohio

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine flour and salt; cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. In a measuring cup, combine egg yolk and enough milk to measure 1/3 cup. Gradually add to the flour mixture, tossing with a fork until dough forms a ball.
  2. Preheat oven to 350°. Divide dough in half. Roll one portion into a thin 15x10-in. rectangle. Transfer to the bottom of an ungreased 15x10x 1-in. baking pan. Sprinkle with cornflakes.
  3. In a large bowl, combine apples, 1 cup sugar, 1-1/2 teaspoons cinnamon and nutmeg; toss to coat. Spoon over crust.
  4. Roll remaining dough into a thin 15x10-in. rectangle; place over apple filling. Beat egg white; brush over pastry. Combine remaining sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over the top. Bake 45-50 minutes or until golden brown.
  5. For glaze, combine confectioners' sugar, vanilla and enough milk to achieve a drizzling consistency. Drizzle over warm pastry. Cool completely on a wire rack. Cut into squares. Yield: 2 dozen.

I have made these several times now. The first time I did them exactly as written with one exception - I used a 9X13 pan. My husband and I loved them. I have since made them with less sugar and still they are very, very good.

I searched many recipes and picked this one. I'm glad I did!! I used fresh picked apples. I omitted the cornflakes, used the extra flour. It was sweet, rich flavored and held up very nicely as a bar. It got rave reviews and was gone quickly. Crust was tender and flakey!!! WOW

I got this exact same recipe from my aunt over 20 years ago, except it was called Danish Apple Bars. They're delicious!

MY REVIEW

I have been making this for years. I only add a couple of Tbsp. of sugar because we like our apples tart. I usually add more cinnamon for our taste and instead of vanilla in the glaze I use real almond extract.It really adds something. I don't always have cornflakes so I have used Crispix, Special K etc. Sometimes I sprinkle on the bottom other times I mix it with the apple cinnamon mix. When I brought this to work to share there was never any left for coffee break. Staff would sneak so they would be sure to get some.
