How to combine Apples and Cheddar - Advice Please!

Aloo0628 | Dec 21, 2006 06:10 PM

So I keep hearing/reading about the deliciousness of the combination of apples and cheddar, but I still have never tried it. So I know nothing about it, and I have questions. What kind of apples? Tart (green) or sweet (red)? What about the apple pie and cheddar combo? I'm especially curious about that, as I love sweet/salty combos (meat w/ fruit glazes and sauces, etc.).

I would like to take the newfound knowledge provided to me by my fellow CH's and transform it into an appetizer involving puff pastry. Any suggestions on how to do it? Should I just fill a pocket of puff w/ pieces of apples and cheddar? Should I make some kind of apple pie-ish filling, put a slice of cheese on top, and wrap in puff? Or would that be gross? I read somewhere about apple pies with cheddar baked in the crust, but I tend to prefer the creamy meltiness of the cheese itself as opposed to the crunchiness of baking it into crusts.

As you can see, I have little knowledge about this subject. Please help me change that! :-)
