  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Whisk 2 cups flour and salt together in a bowl. Cut shortening into flour mixture using a pastry blender or a fork until crumbly.
  3. Whisk water, eggs, and lemon juice together in a separate bowl; stir into flour mixture until dough forms a ball. Split dough into halves; roll each half into about a 9x13-inch rectangle. Press 1 rectangle into the bottom of a 9x13-inch baking dish.
  4. Place apple slices in a large bowl; add sugar, 3 tablespoons flour, and cinnamon. Toss apples to coat; spread over crust. Cover apple filling with remaining crust, piecing together any scraps to cover any holes. Cut several slits into top crust for ventilation while cooking.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until edges are browned and crisp, 45 minutes to 1 hour. Cool to room temperature before cutting into squares, about 30 minutes.

I've seen an almost identical recipe on another site, but it included a glaze (confectioner's sugar, vanilla extract and milk or lt. cream) to be spread over the top while it's still hot. I thought this crust was very bland; I prefer a buttery crust. The filling is also bland even though I added more ground cinnamon and also ground nutmeg. I won't be making this again, sorry.

I have been looking for this! All that is missing is the homemade icing. Also good with peach and blueberry!
