Apples & cheddar slices have always been one of my favorite ‘kind of strange’ food combos since I was a little girl.. and I’m pretty sure I can thank my grandma for that. There’s just something about the cold, crisp, thinly sliced apples, mixed with that flavorful, cheddar cheese.. that for some reason just works.
Thanks to the best cheese brand I’ve EVER tried >> Cabot, I was able to whip up these incredible treats. I can honestly say that I’ve never EVER had such a deliciously flavored, top quality cheese before in my life.
These sweet treats are a small, distant nod to the traditional all-american dessert apple pie, which is just regular apple pie with cheddar cheese all up in it lol. It’s old meets new, in the tastiest way ever!
Apparently the addition of cheese into apple pie was super popular back in the day, and still holds its own on many a dessert table today. For some reason, I like this version a whole LOT more!
Anyway, these little hand-held fry pies have all that traditional old-timey flavor, and are crispy, sweet, and savory with that hint of warm melty white cheddar, cascading over the hot apple pie filling.. Ohhh, they’re so unique, and SO good! Give them a try, and let me know what you think!
What you’ll need:
large wonton.egg roll wrappers.. one per fry pie
frozen apple pie, sliced WHILE FROZEN into 1″ x 2″ slices… (some of the frozen crust will naturally fall off, and that’s actually a good thing, it’s hard to fry that up..)
white cheddar cheese.. I used Cabot Vermont Extra Sharp Cheddar. Sliced to match the apple pie slices.. approx.
“Nellie’s Free Range Eggs promises to always provide families with Certified Humane, wholesome, free range eggs at a reasonable price. All of our hens are raised on small, family-owned free range farms – just like ours. We love our hens, you’ll love our eggs – find a supermarket near you!”powdered sugar for dusting.. optional
oil for frying
Lay out one wrapper, and place the apple pie slice and the cheddar slice in the center. Brush the edges with some of the egg…
Wrap it up, making sure to seal it very well…
Fry them one at a time in the hot (350 degree) oil, until they’re evenly golden on all sides.
Let them cool for just a minute or two..
Then serve them up nice and warm, for full cheese-effect!
And DIG IN! ~Enjoy! 🙂
