I never understood the cheese with apple pie thing until I made this recipe. The cheese in the crumble elevates a simple apple dessert to a whole new level, without losing the home/farm comfort. Then I lost my recipe for a couple of decades. Now I just found it again, and I can't wait to make it!

Ingredients

5 c
sliced apples
3/4 tsp

1/2 c
sugar, divided
4 Tbsp

lemon juice
2/3 c
flour
1/8 tsp

1/3 c
butter
1 c

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Slice the apples. A corer-slicer makes this job a snap.
2
Put the apple slices in a large mixing bowl, toss with the lemon juice and water.
3
Arrange the apple slice mixture in a 9x9" baking dish that has been prepared with food release spray.
4
Combine 1/4 cup of the sugar, cinnamon, and salt, and sprinkle over the apples.
5
Combine remaining sugar with the flour and salt. Work in the butter with a fork until the mixture is crumbly.
6
Stir in the cheese.
7
Sprinkle the crumb mixture over the apples.
8
Bake at 350* about 45 minutes, until the apples are tender and the crumble is golden brown.

NOTE: You can use whatever apple you like, but I think Granny Smith is the best, or maybe Pippin.

This recipe is easy to multiply.

It can easily be made gluten free by substituting gluten free flour. I like Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free All Purpose Baking Flour.
