This recipe was given to us years ago by June Smith of Rockledge Orchard, and it has been a favorite.
Oven 425 degrees
Large pizza pan
Double pie crust
About 6 medium to large apples
2/3 stick margarine or butter
1 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup flour
1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese (optional)
Make pie crust as for double recipe (I use Betty Crocker's recipe. Follow exactly and you can't go wrong.). Roll it out to fit the pan, plus a little bit extra. Turn under along the edges and crimp.
Peel and slice apples. Arrange fan shape, overlapping slightly, all over the pan- starting at the outside edge and working to the center.
For topping: Combine brown sugar, flour and margarine until crumbly using pastry blender. Carefully sprinkle over apples. Bake 25 minutes. Optional: 5 to 8 minutes before pizza is done, remove from oven, sprinkle cheese over and return to oven, just until cheese is melted.
