We’d never heard of cheddar apple crisp before, so when the Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board shared this recipe with us, we were eager to try it out! Cheddar apple crisp has all the ingredients of a regular apple crisp. However, it also includes about a cup of shredded sharp cheddar cheese that gets mixed in with the other dry ingredients. The final taste is surprisingly delicious and a new must-have in our apple recipe rotation.
4 c. apples (Golden Delicious or Braeburn, preferably), peeled and sliced
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
1/3 plus 1/2 c. brown sugar, firmly packed, divided
1/2 c. rolled oats
1/4 c. flour
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 c. (1 stick) butter
1 c (4 oz.) of sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
- Preheat oven to 350° F. Combine apples, lemon juice and 1/3 cup brown sugar. Arrange in buttered 8- or 9-inch square pan.
- Combine dry ingredients and cut in butter until mixture is crumbly; gently mix in cheese. Sprinkle evenly over apple mixture. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes. Serve with ice cream or whipped cream and garnish with shredded cheese. Makes 6-8 servings.
