Apple-Cheddar Pocket Pies

So in my last post, I mentioned I wore that outfit to SarahJean's house to make pies.
This is the recipe we used!
My sister Rachel had given me a pocket pie mold (available at Williams Sonoma) for my birthday, so we had to try it out. 
Next time, I suggest using a softer filling.
The sharp edges of the sliced apples poked holes in the crust when closing the mold.
I'm thinking Maple-Brown Sugar pop-tarts!




P.S. Thanks to Emeril for the recipe! BAM!

Apple-Cheddar Pie

  • 3 medium Golden Delicious apples (about 1 1/4 pounds), peeled, cored, and sliced 1/4-inch thick
  • 3 medium Granny Smith apples (about 1 1/4 pounds), peeled, cored, and sliced 1/4-inch thick
  • 1/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 4 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon grated nutmeg
  • Pinch salt
  • 1 cup medium cheddar cheese (4 1/2 ounces), 1/2-inch cubes 

  • Crust (recipe)*
    Follow the recipe in the link above plus adding 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese! (Or use store bought pie dough and sprinkle some cheese on top before baking)

    *Can be made as one 8-9" traditional pie*

    These go fast! 
    My husband, who isn't the biggest fan of sweets, loved these because he loves cheese!
