Ingredients:
    -----FILLING-----
1/4  cup  Brown sugar
2  tablespoons  Cornstarch
1  cup  Water
5  cups  Apples, peeled and sliced
1/2  teaspoon  Cinnamon
1/4  teaspoon  Nutmeg
1  tablespoon  Lemon juice
    -----PASTRY-----
2  cups  Flour
2/3  cup  Shortening
1/2  teaspoon  Salt
2    Egg yolks, beaten
1/4  cup  Cold water
1  tablespoon  Lemon juice

1/2  cup  Powdered sugar

Directions:
Combine sugar, cornstarch and butter in saucepan. Mix until well blended, add apples. Heat to boiling, stirring constantly. Remove from heat, stir in spices and lemon juice, set aside. For pastry, combine egg yolks, water and lemon juice. Blend into flour. Mixture will form a ball, divide in half. On lightly floured board, roll dough between 2 pieces of waxed paper to fit bottom and halfway up sides of 9x13 inch pan. Spread apple mixture over pastry. Roll remaining pastry to fit pan. Place on top of filling. Fold bottom pastry over and press to seal. Cut a few slits in top. Bake for 40 minutes at 400 degrees or until lightly browned. Combine ingredients for glaze and drizzle over cooled pastry.
