Apple cheddar pie

Yield: 8 servings

Measure Ingredient
2⅓ cup All-purpose flour
½ cup Enriched Corn Meal (Aunt Jemima or Quaker)
1 teaspoon Salt (optional)
⅓ cup Margarine or butter; plus...
2 tablespoons Margarine or butter
⅓ cup Vegetable shortening
6 ounces Shredded cheddar cheese
½ cup Ice water
8 cups Peeled, sliced apples (about 8 medium apples)
⅔ cup Sugar
¾ teaspoon Cinnamon

Combine 2 cups flour, corn meal and salt. Cut in ⅓ cup margarine and shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in cheese.

Add water, 1 tablespoon at a time, stirring lightly until mixture forms a ball. Divide dough into 2 parts, 1 slightly larger; shape each to form ball. Wrap securely in plastic wrap or wax paper; chill about 30 minutes. Roll large ball on lightly floured surface to form 11-inch circle. Fit loosely into 9-inch pie plate; trim. Roll remaining dough to form 12-inch square. Cut into 12 x ¾-inch strips.*

Heat oven to 400 F. Combine remaining ⅓ cup flour, apples, sugar and cinnamon; spoon into crust. Dot with remaining 2 tablespoons margarine. Weave strips atop filling to make a lattice crust. Trim even with outer rim of pie plate. Fold lower crust over strips; seal and flute. Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until crust is light golden brown, shielding edges with aluminum foil if necessary. Cool slightly.

*NOTE: To make a double crust pie, roll remaining dough to form 10-inch circle instead of cutting strips. Prepare filling as directed. Place top crust over filling; trim. Turn edges under; flute. Cut slits in top crust to allow steam to escape.
