All this time I have been thinking apple pies were hard to make. This recipe was so easy and delicious! I've never had cheese in my apple pie before and I'll never have apple pie without it again.
I'm on my way to buy apples! I just know my family is going to love this pie. Thanks for sharing.
Probably the best tasting apple pie I've had...the gooey cheese in the pie was a great addition. Thanks
