Ingrients & Directions

2 1/3 c All-purpose flour 6 oz Shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 c Enriched Corn Meal 1/2 c Ice water
— (Aunt Jemima or Quaker) 8 c Peeled, sliced apples
1 ts Salt (optional) — (about 8 medium apples)
1/3 c Margarine or butter; plus… 2/3 c Sugar
2 tb Margarine or butter 3/4 ts Cinnamon
1/3 c Vegetable shortening

Combine 2 cups flour, corn meal and salt. Cut in 1/3 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 3/4-inch

Heat oven to 400 F. Combine remaining 1/3 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

*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.
