MRS. PAUL'S APPLE SQUARES

This recipe is from an old community cookbook.

Crust:
2 1/2 cups flour
2 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup shortening
2 eggs, separated
milk

Apple Mixture:
8 apples, pared & sliced
1 cup sugar
1 tsp cinnamon

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Blend together the flour, sugar, salt, and shortening as though making a pastry. Beat the egg yolks and add enough milk to them to make 2/3 cup. Blend the egg mixture into the pastry like mixture. On a floured surface, roll half the dough and place on a cookie sheet that has sides. Mix the apples, sugar, and cinnamon together and spread over the pastry on the cookie sheet. Roll out the remaining pastry and place over the apple mixture. Seal the edges. Froth the egg whites and spread over the top crust. Bake at 400 degrees for 35 minutes. Frost while hot with a thin powdered sugar icing.
