  • In a medium bowl, stir together the flour and salt. Cut in the 1 cup butter until mixture is mealy. With a fork, stir in the 2/3 cup milk and egg yolk. Divide dough into 2 equal parts. On a lightly floured surface, roll out 1 piece of dough into a large rectangle. Place on the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking pan.

  • Sprinkle cereal over the crust, then layer the apples over the cereal. Stir together the 1 cup of white sugar, and the 1and 1/2 teaspoons of cinnamon and nutmeg; sprinkle over the apple layer. Roll out the other half of the dough and cover everything in the pan. Brush top crust with the reserved egg white and sprinkle with a mixture of 2 tablespoons sugar, and 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon.

  • Bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour in the preheated oven. Top crust should be lightly browned. Mix together the 1 cup of confectioners' sugar, 1 and 1/2 tablespoons of milk, and 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla until smooth; drizzle over bars while they are still warm.

This is an excellent recipe that my mother has been making for years - my own recommendations: use ONLY Granny Smith apples for low juice and perfect baking results; use only 4-5 apples rather than the 8 suggested here enough for a single dense layer; and you don't have to use corn flakes for the base you can use any flaked cereal or even crisped rice cereal works great. I made this last night for some dinner guests and they RAVED about it. Read More

This looked and smelled wonderful. The crust was very very nice both in flavor and texture but the filling was dry. I used gala apples sliced thin as directed. Perhaps thicker wedges would have held the moisture better. This was my only complaint. The flavor was nice. Read More

I made these for my husband who loves apples and they were a big hit. Great for dessert or with morning coffee. Note: The recipe should read 1 1/2 tablespoons (not teaspoons)milk for the glaze. Read More

I used four good sized granny smith apples = 8 cups. I mixed ingredients and apples together in a bowl to evenly coat them. Great recipe unlike other reviews mine held up well for a few days. Read More

Delicious! Just like apple pie! But that means this recipe is definitely not "traveler friendly". Much too much ooey gooey sticky streuselness to be a good item for packing. But that's ok; just eat them warm right out of the pan! Read More

Excellent stuff! I've always used green apples and frosted flakes but otherwise the recipe goes unchanged. I do roll the dough out to fit a (sided) cookie sheet - makes more. A must on my christmas trays and happy indulgence any other time of the year. The only complaint (and it's not much of one considering they're gone within two days) but they don't have a good shelf life...only two days without becoming soggy. Read More

Yummy yummy! This is really easy and fun to make! The crust is a breeze if you've got a pastry blender - and if you don't use a fork. The only thing I would add to this is a couple pats of butter over the apples before adding the top crust but that's just because I love butter. It doesn't "need" it - it's great just the way it is!

These are delicious! I am not sure what role the cornflakes play I could not taste them and there was not a texture difference in the bottom crust... As for the sogginess-after-two-days issue I reheated them for 15 minutes at 250 degrees then upped the temp to 350 for another 10 minutes or so and the crust "freshened up". They were a hit with our Bible Study Small Group. I also liked the way the glaze hardened in the oven after the second heating so I might add it 1/2way thru next time. (If serving it to a crowd) Thanks! Read More

This is soooooooooooo good and easily made with common household ingredients. I would have given it 5 stars except it is a bit too sweet. Next time I will cut down on the sugar from one cup to a half cup because the drizzle on top is just too good to skip! My husband loves sweet things so this suits him just fine! Read More
