Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Separate your egg white and egg yolk.

Let’s start by making the dough.  Add the egg yolk to a measuring cup and then add just enough milk to make 2/3 cup of liquid.  Beat together well.

In  a medium bowl combine the flour and salt. Add the cubes of butter.

Cut it into the flour until the dough resembles coarse crumbs.

Stir in the milk and form two balls of dough. Set aside.

Roll out one of the balls of dough into a 15 x 10 inch rectangle.  Place it carefully on the bottom of a baking dish.

Cut, peel and slice 8 cups of apples.

Layer the apple slices evenly on the dough.

In a bowl combine 1 cup sugar, nutmeg and 1 1/2 tsp of cinnamon.  Sprinkle this evenly over the apples.

Roll out the second ball of dough to the same size and place it over the apples.  Seal the edges.

Beat the egg white till frothy.

Brush the egg white over the top of the dough.

In a small bowl combine the remaining 1 tbsp sugar and 1 tsp of cinnamon and sprinkle it on top.

Bake in the oven for 45-60 minutes.

Mix together the powder sugar, water and vanilla.

Drizzle it over top of the apple bars.

Let it cool then cut into squares.
