1 (9-inch) unbaked pie shell
2 cans (20-oz each) sliced apples OR 6 cups peeled, cored, sliced apples
1/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
3 tbsp flour
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
2/3 cup grated cheddar cheese
1/2 cup flour
1/3 cup butter
additional cheese slices, if desired
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
In a medium to large bowl combine the apples, 1/3 cup brown sugar, 3 tablespoons flour, lemon juice, cinnamon and nutmeg. Arrange the apple mixture in to pie shell.
In a small bowl combine the 1/2 cup brown sugar, grated cheese, and half cup of flour. Using a pastry blender or 2 knives, cut in the butter to make a crumbly mixture. Sprinkle the crumb mixture over the apples.
Place pie in the preheated oven and bake at 425 degrees for 40 to 45 minutes or until the apples are tender. After about 20-25 minutes, loosely cover the pie to prevent over-browning.
Serve pie warm with the slices of cheese, if desired.
