2 cups flour
8 apples (Sichler Farms Granny Smith, Rome or Winesap), peeled and sliced (approx. 12 cups)
1 cup sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
¾ cup shortening
2 egg yolks
1 tablespoon lemon juice
7 tablespoons cold water
Sift flour and salt, cut in shortening. Beat egg yolks slightly. Add egg yolks, water and lemon juice, into flour and shortening, mix to a soft dough. Mix sliced apples, sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg, set aside.
Take half of the dough and roll it out. Place in the bottom of a rectangular 9” x 12” pan. Arrange the apple slices on top of the dough. Roll out the remaining half of the dough and place on top of the apples. Bake at 400 degrees for 1 hour.
When apple slices are cooled drizzle with a powdered sugar glaze (1 cup powdered sugar, 3 tsp milk or water, mix until smooth).
