This apple pie gets a savory zip from fresh cheddar cheese and crunchy bacon crumble topping. What a tasty and simple dessert to make. This is one of my husbands favorite.

I posted this recipe in Sept. on another site... it was well received there- hope you like it too!
I'll post the crust separate in "Our Favorite Pie Shells".
