“Apple tart recipe that came from Block Island. Easy, very good. I didn't think I would like apples with cheddar cheese, but the taste is outstanding.”
1 tart

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. On floured work surface, rool out pastry dough into a 16" round.
  3. Fold dough in half and transfer to a lightly greased baking sheet. Set aside.
  4. (note: I use prepurchased pie dough already in two rounds, so I simply lay one on the sheet and top with the second. You end up with a round tart this way).
  5. In a large bowl, combine apples, sugar, flour, lemon, raisins, cinnamon,nutmeg and salt. Gently stir to blend.
  6. Mound apple mixture in the middle of the dough, leaving two to four inches all around the edge.
  7. Scatter cheddar cheese over mixture.
  8. Fold edge over filling all the way around, pleating pastry as needed.
  9. Lightly baste with water, then sprinkle sugar/cinnamon mix on top.
  10. Bake tart in preheated oven until pastry is golden and apples are tender, about 30 to 35 minutes.
