Cheddar Cheese Crust Apple Pie

Cheddar Cheese Crust Apple Pie

Nothing beats a warm apple pie straight from the oven on a crisp autumn day.  Today I will even show you how to make that pretty lattice top too!

We recently went apple picking which is the best ways to  get some of the freshest apples available in the fall. Which is perfect to make this homemade family recipe. Do you want to  know more about our apple picking adventure? You can check it all out at our A is for Apple Picking  post. Today I will be making my families homemade apple pie recipe. First thing that you want to do is preheat your oven to 425 degrees. While you are waiting on the oven to warm up, this is perfect time to wash, core and slice your apples into wedges. I personally prefer to remove the skin after slicing, but if you find it is easier to pre peel them whole and then slice, feel free to do it that way.

I always like to use a mix of apples in my pies, which usually consists of half Granny Smith and half Red Delicious. Sometimes, I have been known to use Pink Ladies, if they are available, in place of the Red Delicious, just to mix things up a little.  Pink Ladies have a nice tart quality, very much like a Granny Smith apple, in case you have not been blessed enough to try to them out.Now that you have you apples cleaned and cut in to slices, place them into a large mixing bowl. Then you will coat evenly with 1/4 of cup of orange juice. You can also use lemon juice, but I personally like the flavor that the orange juice gives to the pie. Then add in your mixture of sugar, flour, and spices. Toss the apples and make sure to coat them all evenly. 
I love using fresh spices, but for this recipe specifically fresh nutmeg is key. I find that using fresh nutmeg this time of year just makes everything taste fantastic!!! For this reason, I purchased whole nutmeg pods and grate my own fresh with this handy dandy microplane. I swear that it really does make a noticeable difference, in all you recipes.  
Once you have coated your apples completely, pour them into your pie shell. At this point, you can either make your own pie crust, or you can use a store bought crust. Either way  just make sure to butter your pie pan prior placing your crust into the pie pan. I used a pre-purchased pie crust kit which comes with 2 pie shells, so I have one left over to create the lattice top.For a lattice top crust  you will want to cut your second pie crust into even strips, as seen above. I high recommend a lattice top for proper steam venting of the pie. Plus they are so pretty, and it will totally impress your family. For the longest time my family thought it was a store bought pie which is why I started to add the cheese, to make it custom, lol.The first step to creating a lattice top is taking every other strip and laying it out across the pie,  as seen in the picture above.Next you will fold back strips # 1, 3, & 5 , then place a new strip perpendicular over strips #2 & 4 on your pie. Replace strips 1, 3, & 5 back across your newly placed perpendicular strip on the pie. Repeat the process alternating the strips for each layer.Then press your edges together to make a seal around the edges. It should look like this, hopefully.Now here is where I go off the map….. my father always loved a slice of sharp cheddar cheese melted on his apple pie, which is totally a southern thing, that became out family tradition. So, I decided when I am making the pie I either add cheddar cheese into my homemade crust (similar to a cheese straw) or if I am using a pre-done pie crust I sprinkle it on top before baking.If you are just not sure about the whole cheese thing you can totally omit this step in the process, but I do recommend you try it at some point. You can always melt a piece on top after the fact if you decided you want to try it.

  95. There are so many opinions about the optional cheese topping, lol I can’t even believe it. Honestly it was what drew me into to the recipe, because it was something little different. I plan to try it and let you know.

  96. You made some first rate suggestions here. I was intrigued by adding the cheese, and I have to say you are right tit is good. Great share with your website.

  97. I have never heard of doing this, the cheese part that is…. I imagine it would be good on a savory level. I may just have to try it.

  98. Thank you very much for your specialized and effective guide for a lattice top pie crust. I won’t be reluctant to suggest your site to any individual who should get guidance about this problem.

  99. I am intrigued by how much discussion you got from adding cheese on your pie. I believe that you should write more on topics like this, meaning ones they may not have been heard about by a lot of people, but still has a pocket of supporters. Does that make sense? I myself love cheddar on the apple pie but I do not hear of many people that have even heard of that, much less write about it.

  100. It is intensely laborious to find good material on this subject matter. There must be a thousand apple recipes out there. I like that you made yours stand out by adding the cheddar cheese, plus you sound like you realize what you are writing about! Thanks for that!

  101. I am typically in to running a blog myself and I really connect with your content. The article has actually peaks my interest. I am going to bookmark your website and maintain checking for brand spanking new information.

  104. I would like to express appreciation to you for rescuing me from myself. I was trying to make a dessert with what I had on hand and I decide to make your apple pie, it was delicious sans the cheese. Thanks!

  105. UMMMM this looks so good and I think the cheese would even be a nice savory touch to the crust. Great post.

  106. You truly surpassed my expectations. Thanks for presenting these helpful, and informative tips.

  107. I would like to point out my admiration for your generosity for sharing you recipes with the blog world. This looks yummy and I must pin for the lattice top instructions. Why don’t they put that on the pie crust box? I guess that is just too simple.

  108. I have not made a pie in years, and it does my heart to good to see young ladies, like yourself, promoting homemade verses store bought. This is a great site too I must bookmark for later.

  109. I made this pie for my small group after church this Sunday, I even decide to add a small amount of the cheese to the top it just looked so good in the picture. It reminded me of a cheese straw which I love and so did the group. Thanks,from all of us.

  110. My grandaddy used to do this with the cheese too! How funny I have never seen anyone else do it but him, and I will admit it is good, but I still like the ice cream. 😉

  111. I have heard of this kind of kooky tradition I think my family would disown me if I messed with the ala mode option they are ice cream fans. No conversion here, but great recipe, and really reply crust.

  112. Wow thank you for illustrating the lattice top, I have always wanted to make a pie with a pretty top like that and it was really simple. I guess I was hesitant for no reason.

  114. I simply wanted to express gratitude to you for some of the stunning tactics you are placing on this website. I love a good apple pie and the lattice top makes the, so pretty. I have never thought I could make one until now. Thank you so much.

  115. The next time I read a weblog on Apple Pie , I will always be reminded of you addition for Cheddar Cheese. It seems weird but i am pretty sure my grandpa ea t his pie that way too. So yeah it is a southern thing for sure.

  116. Aw, this was a really nice post. I guess I had no ida that you posted recipes too. I though you were only home design, let me say I like you deversification it keeps you site fresh and interesting.

  117. This pie is beautiful, thank for showing how to make a lattice top, it was surprisingly easy, Not to mention, we are actually astounded with your impressive knowledge you serve up.

  122. My spouse and I have been quite thrilled we result of reading your lifestyle blog. Many thanks for all the pieces…of pie lol!

  123. An attention-grabbing dialogue is worth comment. I believe that you must write more on this subject, it won’t be a taboo topic to put cheese on pie, however generally people are excited to talk on such topics. Cheers To the next post.

  124. I found your weblog website on google and reviewed a couple of of your early posts. This one caught me eye, it a fresh new take on a old retro recipe. While other may feel adding cheese is gauche, it a very classic combo meant for a refined pallet, only children eat ice cream on pie. Added your RSS feed to my MSN News Reader. Looking for ahead to studying more from you afterward!?

  125. Ok your pie is beautiful however you lost me at cheese on top, where did you come up with that idea? I will stick to ice cream.

  126. I like you approach to making the apple pie unique, I bookmarked it to my bookmark web site list and might be checking again soon. Pls take a look at my web page as well and let me know what you think.

  127. Interesting idea, I might tryout out next time I have a apple pie.

  128. Here is good old rocky top we do this all the time. It is just a little bit of orange on our pies too, since we are orange through in through. Go UT!

  129. You’re the one doing a really great job. Enjoy the rest of the year. Thanks for all of your hard work on this website.

  130. My grandfather used to do this all the time, it was a staple like cornbread in buttermilk. Some southern traditions never die. I will have to try this again now that I am older, as a kid I always wanted ice cream on top.

  131. I have never heard of putting cheese on apple pie, but I figure you only live once so high as well try it right?

  132. There is noticeably a bundle to know about you through this blog. Clearly you are a southern girl, as this recipe is as southern as grits. Do you have a good homemade grit recipe? If you do you should share it, I think it would be well received. God bless.

  133. I run a bakery and I am thinking about doing a cheddar cheese crust for a set of my apple pies. I was researching the topic and came across your post. Of course I have also read all the comments to get a feel for the climate on this idea. It seems so far people are mixed on whether to like it or hate it. I think I will continue with my plan to add it to the list, as I have many clients with refined taste buds that will appreciate this unique application.

  134. Thanks so much for providing individuals with remarkably brilliant opportunity to read critical food topic and recipes. Reviews from this web site are astounding. It is often very lovely and also packed with fun topic for me personally.

  135. Very nice post, can’t wait to make and try. I actually really love this website, keep on it, good job.

  136. Ok I have heard of this urban legion but actually experienced it. I must try it now, and I really like hoe you used finally shredded cheese to coat the lattice crust.

  137. This topic is all of the sudden on a rise. I can not help but think it might have something to do with your blog post. You make changes you want to see in the world.

  138. Ok it might sound weird but I tried it and it is not! It is actually really good, more to the savor side and it cuts the sweet, like when you eat sweet and salty.

  139. Well doesn’t this sound like goodness in a pie pan. I will have to try the cheese, I must admit it ;s not the first thing I would think to put on apple pie but it worth a shot I trust you.

  140. Blimey that’s what my grandmother used to do. I forgot all about it until I read your post. I am not having inspiration stirring in the baking department. Thank You, sending you my best regards.

  141. I am reading all these comments about the cheese. I was just trying to see what the rest of the readers were thinking. Yes the pie is pretty, I agree, but I am just unsure of the cheese. I like one readers idea about trying it on one piece just in case, but all in all everyone seems to think it is a go. So I am in, bring on the cheese.

  142. Ummmmm this looks so delicious, and I have tried cheese on apple pie before. In fact it is a cutting edge culinary treat, some the most famous chef’s offer a Cheddar Cheese Crust, which is made like a cheese straw, which I sure most people have had before. This is a much simpler way to make ti semi homemade. Love it!

  143. Pretty lattice top pie! I am so glad you showed how to create that I have always wondered. You made it look easy with pre done pie crust so I think I will give it a try. Thanks for inspiring!

  144. Last post then I have to go get the kiddos…. You lattice top pie is beautiful. Thanks for showing the details on how to make it look that way.

  145. What a pretty apple pie! Thank you for teaching how to make a lattice crust top, you make it look easy. I am now willing to give it a try.

  146. There is nothing more American than apple pie, but you threw me a curve ball with that cheese. I must say I like apples and cheese together but I never thought about cheese on pie, I might just have to try it. Like the lady below said, melt it on a single piece before I commit to the whole pie.

  147. I love me some apple pie but I am unsure of the cheese crust. I bet it is really good, but my family is sooooooooo picky. I am afraid it would rock their world if I strayed from the normal scoop of ice cream.

  148. Oh yummy this sounds so good. I actually like the combo of a stout cheese and apples together. I guess it is more for a refined palette, like us southern girls.

  149. My mother used to add cheese to her apple pie too. I have not though about that in years, thanks for memory.

  150. I would have never thought to put cheese on a apple pie, but it is really good. While I did not make mine, I purchased one for dessert last night. We I reheated my piece I decided to try you idea and it was tasty.

  151. I hear ya on the cheddar cheese, you know I grew up in the south too, and it’s just what you do. Apples and cheese people, they go together like pork skins and PBR.

  152. Apple pie is one of my favorites and I can’t wait to try the cheese on top. Although I have never done this before, it sounds good. Also you lattice top crust turned out very pretty, good job.

  153. This is a very interesting idea, not sure about the cheese though. Clearly you are a very skilled blogger. I have joined your feed and look forward to seeking more of your fantastic post. Also, I’ve shared your web site in my social networks!

  154. Very interesting recipe, I have never tried Cheddar Cheese on Apple pie but I will give it go. Thank you for posting. “What the world really needs is more love and less paperwork.” by Pearl Bailey.

  156. Whats up girl? This is an awesome post, I too like cheese on apple pie…. no worries girl it’s a southern thing……kinda like good grits. Some people just won’t get it!

  157. I’ve always heard that cheddar goes well with apples – but I’ve never tried it. Going to have to give it a shot.

  158. Can you believe I’ve never had apple pie? The texture looks very appetizing to me, this sounds yummy!

  159. I’m a little apprehensive about the cheddar cheese crust, but I know some sweet and savory combinations that work out pretty well. My boyfriend LOVES apple pie, so maybe we can give this a try for something new.
