Cheese Special - Colby: Apple Cheese Pie


Don't let a little ol' apple pie just languish uncheesed...add a little Colby to make something quite special!

Apple Cheese Pie



















Ingredients

Pastry:
  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 1 cup self-raising flour
  • Pinch salt
  • 185 g butter
  • Squeeze lemon juice
  • Cold Water

Filling:
  • 60g butter
  • 1/2 cup castor sugar
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup plain flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup apple pulp
  • 125g Colby cheese, finely grated
  • Extra castor sugar

Pastry - Sift flours and salt, rub in butter with fingertips, until mixture resembles breadcrumbs.  Gradually add lemon juice and sufficient water to mix to a firm dough.  Turn on to a floured board.  Refrigerate for 30 minutes.  Roll out 3/4 of the pastry to line a lightly buttered, shallow pie dish.  Set aside.

Filling - Cream together butter and sugar.  Gradually beat in eggs one at a time.  Fold in plain flour, cinnamon, salt and apple pulp, blend well.  Stir in grated cheese and pour the mixture into a pie shell.

Roll out remaining pastry to form top on pie, moisten edges to seal, brush lightly with water and sprinkle with sugar.  Bake in a hot oven for 15 minutes then reduce heat to moderate for a further 15 minutes.  Cool.  

Cocinar, comer y ser feliz!
