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!

How to Make Cheddar Apple Crisp

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.
  9. 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.
