Topic: Need a recipe for Pie Slices

  I am looking for a recipe for Apple or Pineapple (or cherry) pie slices - the kind you make in a 15 x 10 sheet pan and have frosting on them.  Have tried a couple recipes and just cant seem to get the crust right.  Have tried with eggs and/or real lard but something is wrong.  Also do you use fresh or canned pineapple (chunks or tidbits).  My mother used to make these (many years ago) and I never paid any attention and she didn't have a recipe.  Would appreciate any help or recipes you have -

"APPLE PIE SLICES"
INGREDIENTS
Cooking Time: 50-60 minutes
Servings: 24
2 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter flavored shortening
1 egg yolk
2/3 cup cold milk
1 egg white
1 1/2 cups frosted cornflakes
8 tart baking apples (I used a combination of HoneyCrisp and Zestar), cored, peeled and sliced
1/3 cup white sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon cardamom
1 tablespoon cold butter, cut into pieces
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 tablespoon milk
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
DIRECTIONS
1.Preheat oven to 350 ° F; grease and flour a 9 X 13 inch pan.
2.3.In a large bowl, combine the flour and the salt. With a fork, cut in the shortening until the mixture is crumbly. Beat the egg yolk into the cold milk and slowly add it to the flour mixture, stirring it together until it forms a ball. Turn the dough onto a floured surface and gently knead a little more flour into it if it is too sticky (avoid handling it too much, or the crust will be tough). Divide the dough in half. Sprinkle a little flour on a piece of parchment paper or a silpat and roll out one half of the dough into a large enough rectangle to cover the bottom and sides of the 9 X 13 inch pan. Turn the dough into the pan and gently press it into place.
4.5.Beat the egg white until it is slightly frothy. Brush the bottom and sides of the dough lightly with the egg white and reserve the rest for later. Sprinkle the frosted cornflakes evenly over the dough. Arrange the apple slices over the cornflakes.
6.7.In a small bowl, combine the white sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon and cardamom. Sprinkle the sugar mixture over the apples; dot with the butter pieces.
8.9.Roll out the remaining dough and place over the top of the apples. Pinch all of the sides to seal and cut a few lines on the top to vent. Brush some of the remaining egg white over the top of the dough.
10.11.Bake in the preheated oven for 50 to 60 minutes, or until golden brown. In a small bowl, combine the powdered sugar, milk and almond extract. Drizzle over the warm pie.
