sifted all-purpose flour
2 (21 ounce) cans
apple pie filling
shredded Cheddar cheese
packed brown sugar
This is an amazing recipe. The cheese doesn't melt completly, but i don't think it should. Pictures or more detail about how it should look are not needed, just be creative. The dessert was delicious, can't beat it. No complaints!
the cheese doesnt melt and the taste of the plain flour with brown sugar is horribly disgusting.. the crust is too thin and it breaks up very easily.
This is an excellent recipe. I took it to a BBQ that had TONS of food and after everybody ate their main meal they still finished this off...nothing left but crumbs! Lots of compliments. And I like how versital it is, you can substitute other pie filling flavors for variety.
Cheese shreds didn't melt and less flour in topping would have improved. I'd like to try with cherry pie filling next time.
Great Recipe!!! Everyone loved this and I only had to make a few minor adjustments to the instructions. I actually doubled the recipe for the crust since the first batch wasn't enough to cover the 12" pizza pan.I baked the crust for an additional 5 minutes since it was a bit thicker than intended and I also only used 1/2 cup of flour for the cheese/sugar/cinnamon mixture. Overall a VERY good recipe - very tasty and I was amazed that the cheese didn't melt also. It kind of became crunchy instead.
This was a hit every time I have made it. One thing that I have done to add to the richness of the topping is add small dots of butter. This melts into the topping and gives it a delicious flavor. The crust does come up a bit short so I have doubled the recipe to give it a bit more thickness. This is a really easy and delicious recipe.
I give this recipe a 5 star it is easy to make and yummy too. Instead of canned pie filling, I make my own apple pie filling and for the crust as advised by others, I double it up and I get 2 8' pie. For the topping it was really amazing. My 5 yrs old boy really love this and so are the rest and I can't stop thinking of doing again soon.
My husband has always like cheddar cheese with his apple pie, so thought he would like this (he DID). I don't care for canned fillings, so made my own, using 5 med. sized Granny Smith apples. I got distracted, while making the crust, and put the butter, sugar and flour in the bowl together. Rather than dump it out and start over, I mixed it that way and ended up having to add a couple tablespoons water to get the dough to hold together. Was worried it would be tough, but turned out tender and good. I'll try it the right way next time and see what the difference is. Also, next time, I will only use a 1/4 cup or so of the flour in the cheese and brown sugar mixture -- 3/4 cup was way too much. I'm sure the cheese is not SUPPOSED to melt. A good, DIFFERENT recipe -- thanks.
