I made this awhile ago and didn't review it. I thought it was really good---I love the tastes of apple pie and cheese together! I used another recipe from this site---Grandma Ople's apple pie I think it was. Very good combination! Thanks for the post!

My teenage daughter made this recipe last year and had such compliments that she chose to make it again. She made the crust in a food processor and chilled the shortening in the freezer for a few minutes and it came together beautifully. Not much crumbling for her. Her grandfather has enjoyed cheddar cheese on his apple pie for years and this was a new and enjoyable twist to it.

Great taste! Though it's very crumbly and difficult to roll out. Roll out as best you can, but it's easier to press it into the pie tin rather than roll it out to perfection. Double the recipe if making a top crust as well.
