4 to 5 tablespoons cold water


3 (3/4-ounce) slices Land O Lakes® Sharp Cheddar American Blend, cut in half

1/3 cup granulated sugar

1/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar

3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

6 medium (6 cups) tart cooking apples, peeled, sliced 1/4 inch thick


1 tablespoon Land O Lakes® Butter, melted

1 teaspoon granulated sugar

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 400°F.

  2. STEP 2

    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.

  3. STEP 3

    Divide dough in half; shape each half into ball. Flatten slightly. Wrap one ball of 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 side. Trim crust to 1/2 inch from edge of pan. Lay cheese evenly over bottom crust. Cover loosely with plastic food wrap; set aside.

  4. STEP 4

    Combine 1/3 cup granulated sugar, brown sugar, 3 tablespoons flour and cinnamon in bowl. Add apples; toss to coat. Spoon apple mixture into prepared crust.

  5. STEP 5

    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 granulated sugar. Cover edge of crust with 2-inch strip aluminum foil.

  6. STEP 6

    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.
