Apple Pie and Cheddar Cheese?

Apple pie with a slice of sharp cheddar cheese?

Yes or no?

Here’s an article about this polarizing combination

Most popular in New England these days. Not in the South

“Cheese, specifically sharp cheddar, has been served with apple pie in the U.S. as early as the 1800s. But the combination was likely born in England in the 17th century; a tradition of using dairy-based sauces in pies evolved into an affinity for topping pie with cheese instead”

Perhaps you’re an a la mode pie eater with a warm slice and vanilla ice cream.

Or an abstainer.

  1. No cheese with my pie please. First choice is just the pie but once in a while a scoop of vanilla ice cream is good. dc

  2. My grandmother always had cheddar cheese with apple pie. Her parents came over from England. Cheese with pie not so much for me.

  3. No cheese for me, but that was my dad’s favorite way to enjoy apple pie. His roots were PA Dutch.

Thanks for your visit. It's always good to hear you stopped by.
