Pink Pearl Pie with Cheddar Crust

When I found these pink lovelies - Pink Pearl apples - I tried to figure out how to use them...and keep their gorgeous hue.

Jake suggested pie. Of course he did! I obliged and added a cheddar cheese crust. Yum. Not much of a dessert person, I actually finished my helping and almost licked my plate clean. Almost.

  • cheddar cheese crust (or use your favorite crust)
  • 3 Pink Pearl apples
  • 3 Cripps Pink apples (use Honeycrisp if you can't find Cripps)
  • 1/4 C organic granulated sugar + more for sprinkling
  • 2 T flour
  • 1 T ground cinnamon
  • 2 T butter
  • whipped cream, for garnish

Roll out your crust or press it into your baking dish. Reserve some for a topping. You can do a lattice; I opted to make twists and a heart in the middle!

In a large mixing bowl, stir together the apples, sugar, flour, cinnamon, and butter. Spoon the mixture into your crust and top with leftover crust. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Cover the pie with foil and bake for 45 minutes. Uncover and bake for another 10-15 minutes. Let pie rest for, at least, 10 minutes before slicing. Serve with a dollop of cinnamon-scented whipped cream.
