Review This Recipe
I made slight change, it's great
I grew up with my mother serving apple pie with chedder cheese so when I saw this recipe I immediatly made it. I didn't have any apple juice so I used 1 TB Apple cider vinegar and 2 TB of water and cooked for 35 min using honeycrisp apples. My oh my it was a hit!!
I made this as a dessert for my hubby. He was very hesitant and didn't like the sound of apples and cheese together. After his first bite, he LOVED it!! This dish lasted for two days and now he's asking me to bake another one! Of course, I'm on my way to the store now!
Easy to make and delicious. We loved this dish and I would make it again. I didn't have butter flavored crackers so I used vanilla wafers and it was great. A winner.
I used this as a dessert and it was wonderful. I will definitely make it again.
As soon as I saw it on your site , I knew I had to try it. I was getting bored with the regular Apple crisp and I have always liked apples and cheese, so what better way to have the best of both worlds. I made two dishes and gave one to the neighbor's kids and they loved it . Thank you for a great receipe
I was expecting more...
I read the reviews to this and thought it would be better than it turned out. I did serve it as a weeknight dessert for company and was disappointed how the cheddar cheese globbed together. My husband thought it was too cheesey. I don't think I will serve it again, and I can understand the confusion as to whether it is a side or dessert. Personally I would not serve it as a side. Too sweet and gooey.
Worth A Try
I didn't make this recipe exactly, but it was similar. It is worth a try, I really liked it. Serve it hot and with ice cream for the best result.
I made this last night. I'm not sure where to put it into my recipe box , side dish or dessert. This was just plain incredible. Thanks for such a great recipe!
My family thought it was great .... the kids especially loved it and and requested it to be made more often.
Love this as a side dish and also as a dessert. It's simple to make and just delicious. Vegetarians can eat this too. I am going to send this recipe to my sister so that she can have something different in her diet.
I made this as a side dish with dinner. It was a bit too sweet and my family agreed that it it would be better served with ice cream. It was quite tasty though!!
Wow - easy and yummy...!
I would give this dish 3 stars, but the first time I made it I accidentally forgot to add the cheese and it was a 5 star dish.
The first time I cooked I did not defrost it. I just dumped it into my casserole dish. I layered the mixtures on top and near the end I stirred it up a bit. We did not have one left over apple when dinner was over. :)
Oh my goodness!!
This dish is soooooo good! Very easy to prepare and VERY tasty!
I found myself practically licking the dish clean!!!
I used this recipe on the dessert table last year at Thanksgiving. My Mother-In-Law even asked for a copy! This recipe will now be a tradition at holidays.
I love to eat baked fruit
This is one of our favorites -- it was a hit at my dinner party. I'm going to make it next Christmas and try Sherri DeWitt's version!
Wow! My variation of this dish was such a hit at Thanksgiving, my family wants it to be a new yearly tradition! I used one can of whole berry cranberry sauce in place of one package of escalloped apples and used lemon juice instead of apple juice. Fantastic
