Platz is a Mennonite dessert.  I would compare it to Fruit Cobbler

Cook filling:  
2 cups fruit with 
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup water and 
3 Tablespoons cornstarch.  Cool.

1 teaspoon yeast and 
2/3 cup water with sugar to proof.  
Cut in:
1 cup shortening, 
3 cups flour,   
2 eggs 
1 teaspoon salt. 
Divide the dough into two pieces.  Roll out and put in 11 x 16 pan.  Place filling on crust.  Place other half  of dough rolled out over filling, seal.  Let rise for 20 minutes.  Bake at 375^ for 45 minutes.  Drizzle glaze with lemon juice added.
