Recipe Thursday: Cheddar Crust Apple Pie

My Pie

I forgot the recipe on Tuesday. Here it is. I made this today but haven't tried it yet. I'm a terrible crust maker. It kept splitting and took me forever to roll out.

Cheddar Crust Apple Pie

2 cups flour
1 cup shortening
1 ½ cups shredded cheddar cheese
1/3 cup iced water
½ cup sugar
2 tbsp flour
½ tsp ground cinnamon
6 cups sliced, peeled apples
4 tbsp butter

Mix 2 cups flour and the shortening with pastry blender or two forks until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in cheese. Add water; mix lightly with fork. Form into a ball and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

Divide dough in half. Roll one half to an 11-inch circle on lightly floured surface. Place in a 9-inch pie plate.

Mix sugar, 2 tbsp flour and cinnamon. Toss with apples; place in pie shell. Dot with butter. Roll out remaining pastry to 11-inch circle; place over apple filling. Seal and flute edge. Cut several slits to permit steam to escape. Bake at 425 degrees for 35 minutes or until golden brown. Serves 8
