4 to 5 Tablespoons ice water
1 1/2 cups Cinnamon Apple Cheddar (or the cheddar of your choice), shredded
6 medium tart apples, peeled, cored, and thinly sliced
1 Tablespoon apple pie spice
Vanilla ice cream
1 Pre-heat oven to 350°F.
2 Place 3 cups flour and cold butter in a food processor; cover and pulse until mixture resembles pea-sized crumbles.
3 Add 1 1/2 cups sugar; cover and pulse until combined.
4 Add ice water, 1 Tablespoon at a time, pulsing after each addition until dough holds together when pinched.
5 Add cheddar; cover and pulse until dough is crumbly.
6 Press half of the dough in the bottom of a greased 13 x 9-inch baking dish.
