Ingredients
CRUST
  • 2 cups Pillsbury BEST™ All Purpose Flour
  • 1 cup (4 oz.) shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup Crisco® All-Vegetable Shortening
  • OR 2/3 stick Crisco® Baking Sticks All-Vegetable Shortening
  • 6 tablespoons ice water
FILLING
  • 6 to 7 cups cored, peeled, sliced tart cooking apples
  • 1/3 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons Pillsbury BEST™ All Purpose Flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons butter
GLAZE
  • 1 large egg white

Preparation Directions
  • Step 1Heat oven to 400ºF. Combine flour, cheese and salt in a large bowl. Cut in shortening with pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add water, 1 tablespoon at a time, mixing until dry ingredients are moistened and dough can be gathered into a ball. Reserve egg yolk and water.
  • Step 2Divide dough almost in half. Roll out larger half to a 13-inch circle on a lightly floured surface. Line a 9-inch pie plate with pastry. Trim edge to 1/2 inch beyond rim of pie plate.
  • Step 3Combine apples, brown sugar, granulated sugar, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt in a large bowl; mix well. Arrange in unbaked pie shell. Dot with butter.
  • Step 4Roll out remaining pastry to an 11-inch circle. Place top crust over apples and trim edge to 1 inch beyond rim of pie plate. Fold top crust under lower crust and form a ridge. Flute edge. Cut slits for steam to escape. Combine egg white and water. Brush over crust.
  • Step 5Bake 40 minutes or until apples are tender and crust is golden brown. Cool on rack. Serve warm or cold with scoops of ice cream or slices of cheddar cheese.
