Recipe Name: Apple Pie With Cheddar Crust Submitted by: Administrator
Source: Source Description:
Ethnicity: Last Modified: 2/22/2014
Base: Comments:
Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 1

3 Cup(s) Soft-wheat flour such as
White Lily
Preferably, or all-purpose
2 Tablespoon(s) Sugar
1 Teaspoon(s) Salt
3/4 Cup(s) Grated sharp Cheddar cheese
1/4 Cup(s) Unsalted butter, chilled
1/4 Cup(s) Lard, chilled
1/4 Cup(s) Solid vegetable shortening
5 Tablespoon(s) Ice water, up to 7
6 Cup(s) Tart baking apples, Rome or
Jonathan peeled and
1/3 Cup(s) Dark brown sugar
2 Tablespoon(s) Apple cider
2 Tablespoon(s) All-Purpose Flour
1 Teaspoon(s) Ground cinnamon
1 Teaspoon(s) Anise seeds, ground
1/2 Teaspoon(s) Ground nutmeg
2 Tablespoon(s) Fresh lemon juice
For the crust, combine the flour with the sugar and salt in a food
processor. Scatter the cheese over the flour. Cut the butter, lard and
shortening into small pieces, and add them. Process briefly, until a
crumbly meal forms. (Alternatively, combine the ingredients in a bowl
with a pastry blender.) Pour in the smaller amount of water, and
process or blend until the dough holds together, adding the extra
water if needed. Divide the dough into two balls. Wrap these in
plastic, and refrigerate them for at least 30 minutes and as long as
24 hours. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Combine the apples with
the smaller amount of brown sugar, adding the rest if they taste
overly tart. Mix in the remaining ingredients. Roll out both balls of
refrigerated dough on a floured surface. Place one in the bottom of
whichever size pie pan you=re using, add the filling, and top with the
second crust. Crimp the edges and prick a few holes in the top to
allow the steam to escape. Bake the pie for 50 to 55 minutes, until
the crust seems well set and lightly browned. Check it after 25 to 30
minutes, covering the edges with foil if they appear to be browning
too rapidly. Serve the pie warm or at room temperature. Yield: 1
