Another Apple Recipe

Who doesn't like a good homemade apple strudel...everyone!

Thanks to my friend Sarah for this great apple recipe...

From the kitchen of Laverne Haller

3 pounds cooking apples
1 egg1 cup sugar
2 ½ cup flour1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt1 cup Crisco
2/3 cup milk½ stick oleo
1 cup crushed corn flakes
¾ cup powdered sugar
½ teaspoon vanilla

1 cup Crisco
2 ½ cups flour
1 teaspoon salt

Mix flour, salt and Crisco with fork or pastry cutter until consistency is crumbly.
In a 2/3 measuring cup beat egg yolk (save egg white for later)

Add milk to make the cup full. Add egg and milk mixture to flour and Crisco mixture.

Stir only until it is mixed, do not over stir. Use half to make bottom

Crush corn flakes to make 1 cup. Pour over crust. Peel and slice apples about 3 pounds of cooking apples. Add 1 teaspoon cinnamon, 1 cup sugar

Pour apples mixture over corn flakes and crust. Pat with butter about 1/2 stick. Roll out remaining crust and put on top of apples. Beat egg white until foaming. Using a pastry brush, spread on top of crust. Sprinkle with sugar (about 2 tablespoons)

Bake at 350 for 1 hour maybe less depending on the apples

In a cup, mix powdered sugar, vanilla and water to make a thin icing. Drizzle over hot strudel.
