In some regions of the U.S., topping apple pie with cheddar cheese is as popular as serving it with ice cream. This rustic holiday tart celebrates tradition with our special Henning’s Cheddar.

Cinnamon Apple Pie Cheddar Galette


  • 1 refrigerated pie pastry
  • 2 medium tart apples, cored and cut into 1/4-inch slices
  • 6 Tbsp. plus 1 1/2 tsp. sugar, divided
  • 2 tsp. cornstarch
  • 1 1/2 tsp. apple pie spice
  • 6 oz. (1 1/2 cups) Henning's Cheddar Cheese, shredded and divided
  • 4 oz. (1/2 package) plain cream cheese, softened
  • 1 large egg, separated
  • 1/2 cup fresh or frozen cranberries, thawed and divided


  1. Heat oven to 375°F.
  2. Roll pastry into an 11-inch circle on a lightly-floured surface. Transfer to a parchment paper-lined baking sheet.
  3. Place apples in a medium bowl. Combine the 2 Tbsp. sugar, cornstarch and apple pie spice in a small bowl and sprinkle on apples and toss lightly. Set aside.
  4. Beat the 1 cup cheddar, cream cheese, egg yolk and 4 Tbsp. sugar in a medium bowl until smooth. Spread cheddar mixture in the center of pastry leaving about 2 inches of the edge exposed.

  6. Sprinkle with remaining cheddar and 1/4 cup cranberries.
  7. Top with the remaining apple slices and cranberries.

Heinen's Grocery Store

By Heinen's Grocery Store

In 1929, Joe Heinen opened the doors of a small butcher shop on the east side of Cleveland, Ohio, aiming to establish himself as the city’s purveyor of quality meats. As customers came into Heinen’s new shop for their meat purchases, they began asking him to carry groceries as well. Joe added homemade peanut butter, pickles and donuts and by 1933, business had grown enough to include a line of produce and canned goods. Heinen’s Grocery Store was born.
