Becky has spent her entire career cooking and baking, which are also her favorite hobbies outside of work. For her, time spent in the kitchen not only relieves stress, but is lots of fun as well. Becky’s love for baking began as a child, standing on a chair next her mom, adding ingredients and mixing up dough.

Cheese is added to the filling of traditional apple pie for a new twist on an old favorite.
Heat oven to 400°F.
Place 1/2 cup cold butter and 5 slices cheese into food processor bowl fitted with metal blade. Pulse until cheese and butter are well mixed. Add 2 cups flour and salt. Process until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. With processor running, add 1 tablespoon water at a time, just until dough forms ball.
Divide dough in half; shape each half into ball. Flatten slightly. Wrap 1 ball dough in plastic food wrap; refrigerate. Roll out remaining dough, on lightly floured surface, into 12-inch circle. Place dough into 9-inch glass pie pan, pressing firmly against bottom and sides. Trim crust to 1/2 inch from edge of pan. Lay cheese evenly over bottom crust. Cover loosely with plastic food wrap; set aside.
Combine 1/3 cup sugar, brown sugar, 3 tablespoons flour and cinnamon in bowl. Add apples; toss to coat. Spoon apple mixture into prepared crust.
Roll out remaining dough, on lightly floured surface, into 12-inch circle. Fold into quarters. Place dough over filling; unfold. Trim, seal and crimp or flute edge. Cut 5 or 6 large slits in crust. Brush with melted 1 tablespoon butter; sprinkle with 1 teaspoon sugar. Cover edge of crust with 2-inch strip of aluminum foil.
Bake 35 minutes; remove aluminum foil. Continue baking 10-12 minutes or until crust is lightly browned and juices begin to bubble through slits in crust. Cool 30 minutes; serve warm. Store refrigerated.
