A very wonderful apple dessert, with or without the grated cheese, which is optional..if not using the cheese, this is yummy with icecream. If you prefer a thicker apple filling add in a couple tablespoons flour.

This is an excellent dessert. I did use 5 apples as the ones I had were on the small side - and only all-purpose flour (no whole-wheat flour in my pantry). I had decided I was going to use the cheese as I have always loved a slice of cheddar with my apple pie but, instead of sprinkling the cheese on top of the dessert after it has finished baking, I actually incorporated the grated cheese (not quite 2 cups) into the biscuit batter, which actually worked really well. I think you could easily cut out a 1/4 cup of the sugar added to the apples and I found that all the juice emitted by the apples was absorbed into the biscuits, so I don't thick any extra flour is necessary as thickener. This is really an apple cobbler - very easy to make and absolutely divine served with some heavy cream poured over top. Thanks Kitten - we have another keeper here.
