Okay, so we're in the Big Apple and I'm sure we are missed by all. So here's a recipe for the best apple pie in the world. If you can't make a pie crust, learn. It's not the same without the cheese crust.

For the Crust:

1½ cups of all-purpose flour

½ teaspoon salt

6 tablespoons cold butter, cut into small pieces

3 tablespoons shortening

½ cup extra sharp grated cheddar cheese

5-6 tablespoons ice water

Mix flour and salt in a bowl. Cut in butter and shortening with a pastry blender until crumbly. Toss in cheese with a fork. Add water one tablespoon at a time, mixing until soft dough forms. Chill covered for 15 minutes. Roll on a floured surface and place in pie plate. Chill for 30 minutes. Proceed with recipe.

For the Pie:

½ cup sugar

3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

1-teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/8-teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon lemon juice

1 recipe topping mix (recipe follows)

Preheat over to 375°F.

Mix sugar, flour, cinnamon, and salt in a small bowl. In large bowl toss apples slices with lemon juice. Add flour mixture and toss to coat. Transfer to chilled cheese crust.
