Labor Day Appetizers


2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter, chilled
1 egg yolk
2/3 cup milk
1 cup crushed cornflakes cereal
8 cups thinly sliced apples
1 cup white sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 egg white
2 tablespoons white sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  1 cup confectioners' sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
In a medium bowl, stir together the flour and salt. Cut in the 1 cup butter until mixture is mealy. With a fork, stir in the 2/3 cup milk and egg yolk. Divide dough into 2 equal parts. On a lightly floured surface, roll out 1 piece of dough into a large rectangle. Place on the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking pan.
Sprinkle cereal over the crust, then layer the apples over the cereal. Stir together the 1 cup of white sugar, and the 1and 1/2 teaspoons of cinnamon and nutmeg; sprinkle over the apple layer. Roll out the other half of the dough and cover everything in the pan. Brush top crust with the reserved egg white and sprinkle with a mixture of 2 tablespoons sugar, and 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon.
Bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour in the preheated oven. Top crust should be lightly browned. Mix together the 1 cup of confectioners' sugar, 1 and 1/2 tablespoons of milk, and 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla until smooth; drizzle over bars while they are still warm.

2 pounds ground beef
2 eggs
2/3 c. dry bread crumbs
1 med. onion, chopped
c. milk
2 tsp. worcestershire sauce (opt.)
1 tsp. garlic salt
tsp. pepper

Heat oven to 400 degrees. Mix all ingredients and shape ground beef mixture into 1 and 1/4 inch balls. Place meatballs in baking pans. Bake uncovered until light brown, about 20 to 30 minutes. Drain. And put aside until you add to dip.

1 package 16 oz. Velveeta (cubed)
1 can Rotel (tomatoes with chili peppers)
1 or 2 jalapeno peppers (canned and drained)

Dice the peppers and add and mix with the melted Velveeta and tomato mixture.. Heat until the mixture is hot and not scorched. Add meatballs to this and stir carefully. Preferably, put this into a crock pot and keep on low heat for about another hour before serving.

Meatballs can be served and eaten with toothpicks while the cheese sauce can be dipped with tortilla chips.
