    gwenrk's Note:

    Oh my gosh. This pie is sooo good. Apples and cheddar compliment each other very nicely here - what else can I say? Try this one instead of your old standby apple pie recipe.

      My mom gave me this recipe from a book she has. It's by FAR her favorite. I have made it twice. Beautiful pie, so flaky and delicious! I'm going to make it again today, trying to use a gluten free flour for a friend. Hope it works as well!!!

      i actually made this a year ago but forgot to put it in my cookbook. I am so thankful I found it again. Dh said it was the best apple pie he aver had! The lemon zest makes a huge difference and the cruse was a nice complement, though I was suprrised that it wasn't more cheesy.

      gwenrk thanx for the great recipe!! I have to agree.. cheddar and apples are yummyyyy together. I did need a little more water in the pastry but other than that.. it was easy to follow and definitely worth making again. :)
