How to make it

  • Mix flour, baking powder and salt in a large mixing bowl. Cut in lard.
  • In a separate bowl, mix together the lemon juice, egg yolks and ice water.
  • Sprinkle over the flour mixture. Combine only until soft dough forms.
  • Pat into a rectangle, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  • Peel, core and slice apples into thick slices. Set aside.
  • Make a slurry with the cornstarch and cold water. Set aside.
  • Boil cup of water with sugar, cinnamon, and salt.

  • Add the apples and cook about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
  • Preheat oven to 450°.
  • Divide dough into two pieces, one larger than the other.
  • Roll out the larger piece to fit the bottom and sides of a 9 x 13 pan.
  • Pour filling into pan.
  • Roll out other piece of dough to fit on top.
  • Crimp pastry together. Cut decorative slashes in the dough to vent for steam.

  • Remove from oven and let cool completely.
  • Mix butter, lemon juice and 2 tablespoons of milk together.

  • If too thick, add additional milk about a teaspoon at a time.
  • If glaze gets too thin, add more powdered sugar.

    I was searching for an apple slices recipe on-line, and because I've ONLY seen apple slices in the Chicago area, I was worried I wouldn't find one! I think they ARE a Chicago thing. Anyway, glad to find one, and from the Tribune no less. It reads like it's the real thing.

    I lived in Elmhurst like forever. Moved to Wheaton about 10 years ago. Best cookbook I ever had came from my mom, Chicago Daily News, was lost in a move. I'd kill for that book. This recipe though, looks like one she used to make. I'm going to try it.
