Cheddar Apple Pie
To some, an apple pie without cheese is like a kiss without a squeeze!
1 package pie crust mix (2 crusts)
2 cups (8 ounces) Wisconsin cheddar cheese, shredded - divided use
3 pounds cooking apples, sliced
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3 tablespoons butter
- Prepare one pie crust (1/2 package) according to package directions. Work 1 cup of the cheddar cheese into crust. Roll dough and line pie plate. Place apples in pastry-lined plate, sprinkling flour and nutmeg evenly throughout.
- To prepare topping, combine remaining package of the pie crust mix, sugar and cinnamon. Thoroughly cut in 3 tablespoons butter. Cover apples with half of topping. Sprinkle with 1 cup cheddar cheese and top with remaining topping.
- Bake in a preheated oven at 375°F (190°C) for about 40 minutes or until apples are tender.
Makes 8 servings.
