  • Summary

    A crumbly slab of Cheddar is a centuries-old accompaniment to a slice of apple pie; it imparts character in a way that a scoop of ice cream can't hope to match. Adding grated cheese to the crust tweaks the tradition, thus bringing an iconic dessert full circle.

    Ingredients

    • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
    • 1/2 teaspoons salt
    • 1/2 pound extra-sharp Cheddar (preferably white), coarsely grated (2 1/2 cups)
    • 1 stick cold unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
    • 1/4 cup cold vegetable shortening (trans-fat-free), cut into 1/2-inch pieces
    • 6 to 8 tablespoon ice water
