I made this semi-simple dessert when we had company over recently. They all were impressed when they saw it on the counter and couldn't wait to try it. I thought it almost looked like a slab pie. Everyone talked about how much they liked it but the best compliment came from my husband when he declared it his new favorite dessert. WOW!! That is something I will be making again.
Originally I had this at my Grandma's house one afternoon when I stopped by and she had it sitting on the counter. I decided to make it because I had cornflakes that need to be used up. I got the recipe from Grandma but I have also seen it other place such as Family Fun magazine.
1 Tablespoon Sugar
2 1/2 Cups Flour
1 Teaspoon Salt
1 Cup Shortening
Cut shortening into dry ingredients. Blend 1 egg in cup and fill to 2/3 cup with milk. Beat and pour over dough. Roll out half of dough on rimmed cookie sheet.
Filling: Place 3 handfuls of cornflakes on top of dough. Sprinkle with 3-4 apples cut in pie slices. Sprinkle 1 cup of sugar over top and follow with cinnamon. Use as much or as little cinnamon as you like.
Roll other half of the dough and place on top. Beat an egg white and brush over top of crust. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.
Enjoy with ice cream!
