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.
