Recipe by: Midwest Living, October 1994 Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a mixing bowl, stir together the flour and salt. Cut in the shortening to the size of small peas. Stir in the cheese. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon water over part of the mixture; toss with a fork. Repeat until all is moistened. Form the dough into a ball. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough to form a 12-inch circle. Ease the crust into a 9-inch pie plate. Trim to 1/2 inch beyond the edge of the plate; fold under the pastry. Finish the edge; do not prick the pastry. In a bowl, combine the apples, sugar, flour, cinnamon and salt. Transfer to the crust. For the topping, stir together the sugar, flour and salt. Cut in the butter until the mixture is crumble. Gently stir in the cheddar cheese. Sprinkle over the filling. Cover the edge with foil. Bake for 25 minutes. Remove the foil and bake for 20 to 25 minutes longer, or until the top is golden and the fruit is tender. Penny Halsey (ATBN65B). By KKBG35A RUTH BURKHAR
