- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup cold butter, cubed
- 1/4 cup ice water
- 1 cup diced apples
- 1 cup ground pork
- 1/2 cup cheddar cheese, grated
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- Salt and pepper to taste
- In a large bowl, combine the all-purpose flour and cubed cold butter. Use a pastry cutter to blend until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
- Add ice water gradually and mix until the dough comes together. Form it into a disk, wrap it in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
- Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
- In a skillet, cook the ground pork until browned. Add diced apples, brown sugar, cinnamon, and season with salt and pepper. Cook until apples are tender.
- Roll out the chilled dough and line a pie dish. Add the pork and apple mixture, then sprinkle grated cheddar cheese on top.
- Cover with another layer of rolled-out dough, crimp the edges to seal, and make small slits on top for ventilation.
- Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes or until the crust is golden brown.
- Let it cool slightly before serving.
