  • Pastry for a Double-Crust Pie

  • ½ cup sugar

  • 2 tablespoon all-purpose flour

  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • 5 cup thinly sliced peeled apples (such as Jonathan or Macintosh) (5 medium)

  • 1 ½ cup shredded white cheddar cheese (6 ounces)

  • ¼ cup maple syrup

  • 1 tablespoon whipping cream

  • 2 tablespoon maple syrup

  • ¼ cup toasted chopped pecans (optional)

Pastry for a Double-Crust Pie

  • 2 ½ cup all-purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • ½ cup shortening

  • ¼ cup butter, cut up, or shortening

  • ½ cup ice water


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Prepare Pastry for a Double-Crust Pie. On a lightly floured surface, slightly flatten one portion of dough. Roll dough from center to edge into a 12-inch circle. Wrap pastry circle around rolling pin; unroll into a 9-inch pie pan or plate. Ease pastry into pie pan without stretching it; set aside.

  2. For filling, in a large bowl, stir together sugar, flour, cinnamon, and salt. Add apples; toss gently to coat. Add cheese and the 1/4 cup maple syrup; toss gently to combine. Transfer filling to pastry-lined pie pan. Drizzle with cream.

  3. Trim pastry even with edge of pie pan. Roll the remaining dough into a 12-inch circle. Cut slits in pastry to allow steam to escape. Place pastry circle on filling; trim pastry to 1/2 inch beyond edge of pie pan. Fold top pastry edge under bottom pastry. Crimp edge as desired. Cover edge of pie with foil to prevent overbrowning.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 40 minutes. Remove foil. Bake about 20 minutes more or until apples are tender and pastry is golden brown. Transfer to a wire rack. Brush with the 2 tablespoons maple syrup. If desired, sprinkle with pecans. Cool for 1 hour. Serve slightly warm. Makes 8 servings.

Pastry for a Double-Crust Pie

  1. In a large bowl stir together flour and salt. Using a pastry blender, cut in shortening and butter until pieces are pea size. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of the ice water over part of the flour mixture; toss gently with a fork. Push moistened pastry to the side of the bowl. Repeat moistening flour mixture, using 1 tablespoon of the ice water at a time, until all of the flour mixture is moistened. Gather flour mixture into a ball, kneading gently until it holds together. Divide pastry in half; form halves into balls.
