My son and his girlfriend came home from college this weekend because they are on fall break. His girlfriend made a wonderful Apple Pie complete with the lattice crust and little bits cut to look like flowers. It was amazing from the look to the taste. She told us the secret is a bit of caramel.
Anyway, she said that my son told her that I do something really strange with my pie. When I grew up we often put cheese on the pie and let it melt. Sometimes just cheese, sometimes vanilla ice cream, sometimes both. It is always a yellow cheese… American, Cheddar, Colby, Colby Jack, whatever. I always thought this was perfectly normal but now I’m starting to doubt myself.
My wife from Wisconsin had never heard of it and they put cheese on everything. The girlfriend from Minnesota thought it was unusual (she was very polite about it though), and obviously my own son thinks it is strange.
Cheese with sliced apples is considered normal… does anyone else melt cheese over their apple pie?
