Apple Cranberry Pie with Cheddar Cheese Crust .

I copied this down earlier this year and I don't remember where I got it! I hope I am not violating a copywrite to publish it; I'm sorry I can't give credit where it is due!

1 3/4 cup flour
1 teaspoon salt
2 Tablespoons sugar
1 cup finely grated cheddar cheese
1 1/2 sticks chilled butter
2 Tablespoons chilled shortening
1/4 cup ice water

Combine dry ingredients. Mix in cheese. Cut in butter and shortening with pastry blender until texture resembles coarse cornmenal. Gradulally stir in water and compress into two dough balls. Place in plastic wrap and chill 20 to 30 minutes. Roll each ball out to form two 1/8-inch-thick crusts.


3/4 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup flour
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
4 cups peeled, cored, and sliced tart apples
2 cups fresh cranberries, washed and dried
2 Tablespoons unsalted butter

Preheat oven to 425°F. Combine sugars, flour and cinnamon in a large bowl. Add fruit and toss. Pour into unbaked pie shell, dot with butter, and cover with top crust. Bake 40-50 minutes.
