Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Whisk 2 cups flour and salt together in a bowl. Cut shortening into flour mixture using a pastry blender or a fork until crumbly.
  3. Whisk water, eggs, and lemon juice together in a separate bowl; stir into flour mixture until dough forms a ball. Split dough into halves; roll each half into about a 9x13-inch rectangle. Press 1 rectangle into the bottom of a 9x13-inch baking dish.
  4. Place apple slices in a large bowl; add sugar, 3 tablespoons flour, and cinnamon. Toss apples to coat; spread over crust. Cover apple filling with remaining crust, piecing together any scraps to cover any holes. Cut several slits into top crust for ventilation while cooking.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until edges are browned and crisp, 45 minutes to 1 hour. Cool to room temperature before cutting into squares, about 30 minutes.

Add a thin layer of corn flakes on top of bottom crust. It absorbs the liquid and saves the bottom crust from getting soft and mushy.

I had to make more crust, it was to thin, so I made the recipe for crust 1 and half. But it was very good other then that

Reminded me of my grandmother's apples slices. I made a few changes based on my recollection of her rendition. I added the zest of one lemon and cut the water in half and made up the difference ...

I love apple pies

The apple squares were good but if I make again I will egg wash the top crust and add sugar & cinnamon.

Yummy! Tastes just like my Mama made While we were kids. Thank you.

Made this per the directions and it turned out great! Dessert at a potluck. crumbs to take home along with many compliments....
