OHR's Apple Pie

RE: OHR's Apple Pie
So in the spirit of "cheese on pie," my hubby - the consummate experimental cook - had a bug in his brain about making an apple pie w/a cheesy crust. I suggested making a crust similar to the Bisquick "cheese-garlic biscuit" recipe (minus the garlic, natch...)

Long story short, he ended up w/what we're calling, "Granny Smith apple torte w/cheesy crust."
   
The crust had a very decent sharp cheddar flavor (using a 4-yr-old aged extra sharp white cheddar) and a "crun-chewy" texture. It was an excellent contrast to the sweet 'n' sour "bite" of the Granny Smith's. We'll have to tweak the crust a bit more so it's not too "biscuity" in the corners, but otherwise I think it would be pleasing to anyone who enjoys "cheese on pie." Big Grin

Blah blah blah....yada yada yada!

RE: OHR's Apple Pie
What an interesting idea! Maybe try mixing shredded cheese into a regular pie crust recipe?

RE: OHR's Apple Pie
Here's a twist on Billie's classic apple pie recipe that she made last weekend. She started off going for an apple dumpling, and kind of morphed into more of a turnover, with 4 distinguishable servings (read: 'clumps') of juicy, appley goodness! She learned the hard way to include a baking pan underneath, due to the fact that A.) She always over-does everything causing the filling to overflow, and B.) She hates cleaning the oven as much as I do! Check these out!

Of course, I had to try mine ala' mode with a little vanilla bean ice cream, sans the cheese this time! Nomnomnomnomnomnom!

Boy, that crust looks nice and flaky...

I'm not usually a dessert person, but that looks pretty darn good.

To ask why we cook is to ask why the leaves fall...

SM-my mom's is known for the crumbs. I wonder if this wonderful recipe could be altered to add her crumbs? When the ladies come back from TJ-Maxx I'll see if I can get her to give it to me to post here!
