Apple Pie with Vermont Cheddar Cheese

Ingredients

4-5 cooking apples, depending on size
3 teaspoons nutmeg or cinnamon (optional)
3/4 cup plus 2 teaspoons sugar, divided
Fool-Resistant Flaky Piecrust
1 tablespoon milk
Aged Vermont cheddar slices

Instructions

Heat oven to 400º.

Pare, core, and slice apples. Add to a large bowl and toss with nutmeg or cinnamon (if you like spice) and ¾ cup sugar. Roll out 1 Flaky Piecrust disk and line a 9-inch pie tin.

Arrange apples. Cover with second Flaky Piecrust disk. Make several slits in the top for escaping steam and crimp edges firmly.

Brush top crust with milk and sprinkle with remaining sugar.

Bake 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 350º, and bake 50 minutes longer. Serve hot with sliced cheese.
