The crust on this apple pie is full of white cheddar cheese, a classic mate for apples.

Cook's Notes

When making pies, it's best to use a somewhat tart apple that keeps its shape during baking, such as the Granny Smith and Cortland varieties used in this recipe.

    Scrumptious! Exactly the combination I've been seeking for several years! The savory crust and "just enough" sweetness in the filling is the right balance. I didn't mix the apples -- used the Macouns from our tree and they were perfect.

    Martha, I TIVO your show every day. I love it. The recipe for the Cheddar Crust Apple Pie seems to be missing the Cheddar. LOL. Could you please let us know if there is in fact supposed to be Cheddar in the recipe? i wrote the whole recipe down and went over the pie part in the show about 3 times thinking i missed it, but i dont see the cheddar! :) thanks Liz Stoltz

    I very highly recommend this pie, and don't be bashful with the cheese, it's the best part! I also tented the pie with foil during the majority of the baking time for fear of overcooking the top.

    I could be overlooking it; where is the cheddar in the "Chedder Crust".

    It always takes a long time to make something for the first time. I remember the first time I made an apple pie in high school. It seemed like it took almost a whole Saturday. Now I can cut up the apples, measure everything and get it in the oven in about 45 mins - an hour. Then I do something else while it bakes. Once you know your oven too, you will know how long it will take your oven to bake something. :)

    Click on the blue text "cheddar cheese" at the top of the recipe. It will take you to the pie crust recipe. All of the ingredients on this first page make up the pie filling.
