Apple pie with cheddar cheese crust in three stages. This made the house smell so good whilst it was baking.

I used 3lbs of Granny Smith apples, juice of one lemon, 1/3 cup white sugar, about a tbsp of cinnamon, and 2 tbsp of corn starch.

Crust was made with 1 1/2 cups flour, 8 tbsp cold butter, cut into tiny cubes, 1/3 cup extra-sharp cheddar, and 4 tbsp ice water. Pulsed first three ingredients in food processor until it looked like chunky cornmeal then added water slowly through the tube with it still running. Pulsed until it came together and I could easily form it into a large disc. Fridged for about an hour before rolling into crust.

Baked at 425 for an hour; it's very brown from the cheese.

I really love pie.

Classic! Sometime try mixing in a golden delicious to mellow out the granny smiths. I bet that cheese crust is terrific! Steve won't eat cheese or I would make that next time :)

I've never had apple and cheese like that. I know some people have rich fruit cake with cheese too.
Looks great
