Easy apple crisp with cheese

I don't know about other people but I had never heard of having cheese with apples. Maybe I'm sheltered. Anyway my husband loves this apple crisp with cheese recipe that I got from his mom. It's easy too.

Apple Crisp with Cheese

4 or 5 apples (I usually use yellow delicious apples)
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup water
1 cup flour
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1 cup (4 oz) velveeta cheese, cut up (see note at the end of the recipe)

Preheat oven to 350°. Peel apples and cut into slices (I peel first, then cut into quarters, cut out the core, and then slice across each wedge into about 1/8" thick slices). Put them in a baking dish-I use an 11 x 7 dish but I have also used a 9 x 9 dish. The apples should come about 1/2 to 2/3 of the way up the dish. Sprinkle apple slices with cinnamon and mix them around to coat them all. Add the water but don't pour it right over the apples or all the cinnamon will come off. I carefully pour the water in between the apples. Set aside.

In a medium size bowl, mix the flour and sugar. Cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add the cut up velveeta and toss to coat. Sprinkle evenly over the apples in the pan. Bake about 50-60 minutes.

note: Cheddar cheese can be used for this recipe but I have found that it gets hard and chewy. For the velveeta, I use lo fat and also, I slice off about 1/4" slices and then cut them up into about 1/2" squares. You have to separate them with your fingers to put them in the dry mixture and it will be messy but it's worth it. If you buy the pre-grated velveeta that's even easier. I haven't tried it yet.

Hi, Gale!

I will have to try your recipe. I make apple pies every year for my dad. He loves the ones with cheese on top! I had never heard of such a thing until I came across a recipe and thought that I would try it--it is now one of his favorites.

I am sure he will love this recipe, too!

Sounds good but I'm not sure about cheese and apple pie. I know several people that like it. Maybe I'll try this sometime.
