Ingredients

3 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup shortening
2 eggs, separated
3/4 cup milk
10 cups sliced apples
1-1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup flour
1-1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1-1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 stick shortening, softened
1 tablespoon milk, warmed

Instructions

Combine 3 cups flour and salt. Cut in shortening with pastry blender. Beat egg yolks into milk. Add to flour mixture. Knead a few times by hand, wrap in wax paper and refrigerate while preparing apple slices.

Roll out half the dough on floured cloth to fit 10x15-inch pan. Fit in pan. Arrange apple slices evenly over entire pan. Combine sugar, 1/2 cup flour and cinnamon and sprinkle over apples. Roll out other half of dough and place on top of apples. Seal edges with a fork. Cut five or six slits in top dough. Brush top with slightly beaten egg whites. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. Cool.

Combine powdered sugar, shortening and warm milk. Drizzle on top of crust.
