Field editor Mavis Diment of Marcus, Iowa writes, 'This is my Aunt Goldie's recipe. She is without a doubt one of the family's best cooks. I like the touch of cheddar in the batter.'

I thought this recipe tasted great. However, I modified it slightly. I don't like walnuts, so I didn't include any. I used vermont sharp cheddar. I didn't add any water, I just mixed the ingredients with the apples as though I were making a pie. And, I used flour instead of the tapioca. In any case, it was delicious, and we ate it warm :) Read More

This recipe is great!!! The cheese added to the topping is excellent!! I sprinkled sugar on the dough once it was spread over the top, which looked great and added a little more crunch! Read More

I substituted pears for this recipe, as the kids had eaten all the apples I thought I had to make this. I cute down on the sugar as pears are sweeter, and it turned out wonderful. Going to make again this holiday season. It was a big hit. Read More

This is fantastic! I made it for my in-laws and we all couldn't stop talking about how good it was. The cheddar gives the crust a nice tangy flavor that is a wonderful compliment to the sweet baked apples. This is going to become a regular menu item in my house! Read More

This is so good. My only question is whether the amount of sugar is too much. It seems awfully sweet. I have a real sweet tooth too! I made it again tonight with 1/3 of the sugar and it was wonderful! Read More

We absolutely loved this recipe. I had bought a bag of apples and they didn't get eaten as quickly as anticipated. So we made this cobbler and my kids and husband gobbled it up. Couldn't be better. The cheese made it really special. Read More

This is basically a good recipe. I changed it a bit by adding cardimom to the apples and placing nuts and cheese on top of apples, leaving some remaining cheese for the batter. It was a hit at a breakfast at work and family enjoyed it for a birthday treat. ;-) Read More
