Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 6

2 Cup(s) Unbleached flour, sifted
1 1/4 Cup(s) Cheddar, Md Shredded
1/2 Teaspoon(s) Salt
2/3 Cup(s) Vegetable shortening
Water, iced
7 Cup(s) Apples, *
1/2 Cup(s) Sugar
2 Tablespoon(s) Unbleached flour
1/2 Teaspoon(s) Cinnamon, Ground
2 Tablespoon(s) Butter Or Regular Margarine
1 Egg Yolk, Lg Beaten
1 Tablespoon(s) Water
Use tart cooking apples such as Macs or Granny Smith's. Core, pare
and thinly slice the apples.
+++ CHEDDAR CRUST: Combine the flour, cheese and salt in a bowl.
Using a pastry blender or two knives, cut in the shortening until
coarse crumbs form. Sprinkle the iced water (5 or 6 tbls will be
needed) and using a fork, toss the crumbs until a dough is formed.
Press the dough firmly into a ball. FILLING Divide the pastry almost
in half and roll out the larger half, on a lightly floured surface, to
a 13-inch circle. Line a 9-inch pie plate with the pastry, trimming
the edges to 1/2-inch beyond the rim of the pie plate. (Note: When
lining the pie plate, be careful not to stretch the pastry when
spreading it out. This will cause holes or the pastry will shrink and
the filling will run over in the oven as it is baked. Place in the pie
plate and gently, working from the center, spread the pastry out until
it covers the bottom of the pie plate and then lay the rest of the
pastry over the rim and trim.) Combine the apples, sugar, flour, and
cinnamon in a bowl, mixing well. Arrange the apple mixture in the
pastry lined pie plate. Roll out the remaining pastry to an 11-inch
circle. Gently fold into quarters and cut steam slits in the folds.
Unfold the crust and place on top of the filling, trimming the crust
to 1-inch beyond the rim of the pie plate. Fold the top crust under
the lower one and flute to form a ridge around the edge of the pie
plate. Combine the egg yolk and water, then brush the mixture over the
top crust and rim. Bake in a 400 degree F. oven for 45 to 50 minutes
or until apples are tender and the crust is a golden brown. Cool on a
wire rack until slightly warm and serve with Vanilla Ice Cream, if
desired. File
