Oh my goodness, I cannot believe I haven’t put this fabulous recipe on the blog! I made it during Thanksgiving, here and haven’t talked about it since. I’m so sorry for the delay!
Usually this creation is my Grandma Anne’s tradition to make in the fall when her apple trees are pouring over with apples and she’s trying to find fun ways to use them. Unfortunately, I don’t have an apple tree in my backyard, but then again I don’t have to wait for fall to make this delicious dish either. Win? I think so: it’s February and I’m eating apple cheese crisp. I win. It has this salty – sweet combination that most people love. Like pretzels and chocolate, cheese and sugared apples are amazing. Make it.
- 6 cups cored, pared and sliced apples
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon or mixed cake spice
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1/2 cup corn syrup
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 2/3 cup all purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/3 cup butter
- 1 cup grated cheddar cheese
Place apples in greased, shallow baking dish, 9×9. Sprinkle apples with cinnamon. Pour lemon juice and corn syrup over apples.
Combine sugar, flour, and salt; cut butter until mixture is the consistency of coarse corn meal. Lightly stir in cheese. Top apples with this mixture.
Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for 1 hour, or until apples a very tender.
Serve warm with cream or ice cream. Or I prefer mine straight with a side of coffee.
