Apple Bars

1 Cup shortening
2 1/2 cups flour
2 egg yolks-fill with milk to make 2/3 cups
2 Tablespoons sugar
1/2 salt

2 egg whites-beaten to form peaks

Roll out above dough and place 1/2 of the dough on the bottom of a jelly roll pan. Cover with beaten egg white.

6 cups sliced apples
1 1/2 cups sugar
cinnamon to taste

Use remainder of dough-roll out and place on top of apples, brush top of bars with remaining beaten egg whites. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until apples are tender. Cool and frost with powdered sugar frosting.

Story; This was served for years at the Streeter Buffalo supper, a community fund raiser. Grandma Dean would often make them and donate these for the dessert. I've made them in place of pie because it serves more people and the crust is fairly easy to handle. They are time consuming to make, but very very good to eat!!
