    MarieRynr's Note:

    This version of the quintessential all-American classic includes a cheddar crust. My dad always sprinkles more cheese over his slice when he eats it. The sharp cheese gives the crust a superior crunch and adds just the right counterpoint to the sweet-tart flavor of the apples. If you want more cheddar, do what my dad always does, or serve an extra slice of cheese on the side. (that's my preference...)
