The subtle taste of cheddar enhances the delicious flavor of this mouth-watering apple cobbler. Serve it with vanilla ice cream, whipped cream or (my preference) hot from the oven just the way it is!
1-1/3 cups sugar, divided
1/4 cup water
2 tablespoons corn starch
1/2 teaspoon apple pie spice
6 cups peeled thinly sliced tart apples
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup butter or margarine, melted
1-1/2 cups shredded mild cheddar cheese
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1.In a large saucepan, combine 1 cup sugar, water, corn starch and cinnamon. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat; stir in apple slices until well coated. Pour into a greased 8-inch baking dish; set aside.
2.In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt and remaining sugar. Stir in melted butter and milk just until moistened. Fold in cheese and walnuts. Spread over apple mixture.
3.Bake at 375 degrees F for 30 to 35 minutes or until filling is bubbly.
