Flat Apple Pie

"This was handed down from my Mother in-law. I like it since I don't like to make pies. It's always a hit and freezes well for lunches."

directions

  • Mix together the flour and salt; cut in the shortening.
  • Separate the egg yolk from the egg white. Set the egg white aside to glaze the top crust.
  • Put the egg yolk in a measuring cup; add milk to make 2/3 cup; beat slightly.
  • Add the milk/egg mixture to the flour mixture all at once.
  • Mix together until it holds together.
  • Gather into a ball and separate into 2 equal portions.
  • Roll out the first half to fit into a jelly roll pan or a large cookie sheet.
  • Sprinkle 2 or 3 handfuls of crushed cereal on top of the crust. I just use my hands to crush the cereal.
  • Mix the apples with the sugar and spread on top of the cereal.
  • Sprinkle the apples with cinnamon and dot with butter.
  • Roll out the second crust. Gently place over the top of the apples.
  • Whisk the reserved egg white until frothy; brush the top crust with it.
  • Cut small uniform slits on the top crust.
  • Bake at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 45 minutes.
  • Glaze lightly with a powdered sugar glaze while still warm if desired.
