       4 x  Med Apples, peeled   *            1/2 c  Sugar
       1 tb Raisins                        
  
   * 4-5 medium Macintosh apples, peeled and thinly sliced
    Work butter into flour with a fork and add sugar, sour cream, and lemon
   rind, kneading to form a dough. Form into a roll, wrap in waxed paper,
   and let rest for 1/2 hour.
    Cut roll in half. Roll out 1 part to fit a 9"x9 pan. Line with apple
   slices and sprinkle with raisins and sugar. Roll out remaining dough and
   cut into strips to form a lattice pattern on top of the apples. Brush with
   egg yolk, to which a little cold water has been added.
    Bake at 325 deg F. for about 20 minutes, until golden brown. Dust with
   confectioners' sugar while still warm, if desired, and cut into
   1 x 2 strips.  Makes about 30. Serve warm or cold.
