    List of Ingredients

    2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 cup butter, chilled
    1 egg yolk
    2/3 cup milk

    1 cup crushed cornflakes cereal
    8 cups thinly sliced apples
    1 cup white sugar
    1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
    1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
    1 egg white
    2 tablespoons white sugar
    1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

    1 cup confectioners' sugar
    1 1/2 teaspoons milk
    1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
    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.
