I think they are still playing football now. As you can tell I am not a big football fan, but I am a big food fan. I saw this recipe and thought it would be great for a get-together to watch the game or for an after school snack, sleep over, brunch or anything in between.
I this would be fun to serve either already prepared on a large platter or with different bowls of ingredients so that everyone can make his own plate.
1 apple per person
Nuts – pecans, almonds, walnuts
Peanut butter, warmed so you can drizzle it
Slice the apples. Place them in a bowl of water with salt in it to keep them from turning brown. Use about 1 tsp. of salt per 4 cups of water. Before serving take apples out of water. Spread apple slices on a platter and drizzle with peanut butter. Sprinkle with nuts, coconuts and chocolate chips and drizzle with more peanut butter.
You can use all kinds of other ingredients if you like. Drizzle with caramel or chocolate, sprinkle with other kinds of dried fruit or use butterscotch, peanut butter or white chocolate chips. You can try whatever sounds good to you.

As the Betty Crocker Cookbook says “apples pie without cheese is like a kiss without a squeeze.” Really! Consider shredding some cheddar on the apples and topping it with nuts. Those not sweet eating men might espeically like this.
I didn’t even know that there were some people who didn’t eat their apple pie without cheese until Tawra got married and my son in law who loves apple pie had never heard of it. I thought it was a well known fact that unless you had cheese you couldn’t have apple pie. : )
I like cheese, crackers, and apples, but never had cheese on apple pie. Will have to try it. Also apples with peanut-butter and those other things mentioned in this post sound yummy.

Your son in law led a deprived childhood! I’m glad that your daughter rescued him.
Some people actually mix the cheese into the pie dough. I prefer a wedge on the side of my room temperature pie. If God had wanted us to eat fruit cold he would make it grow in 40 degree weather!
You could substitute bacon bits for the nuts and pears for apples.
Yes I keep telling him how blessed he is that she rescued him and on top of that has me for a mother in law but for some reason he just rolls his eyes and makes a face when I say that. Go figure. : ) : )
GBM I hate room temp fruit and veggies.
got to be cold or I put it back in the fridge.
Unless they are right off the tree.
Hot food really hot.
Cool or cold food really cold.
My husband thinks I am weird but nothing room temp tempts me at all.
He thinks my teeth will crack sometimes I have it so cold.
Cheddar cheese and apple pie is to die for. Also apple crisp with cheese.

Grandma, cold is against my religion, Presbyterism. We do everything decently and in order.
By the way, arent you in Canada where if you left fruit on the counter it would be 40 degrees anyway?! Giggle!
Actually in the winter we put it in the fridge to keep it from freezing.
Strange winter though this year. yesterday we had rain and today it was snowing lightly. The day before it was melting. This happens from time to time so nothing to panic about we up here are rejoicing.
hubby is from ky .. and he grew up eating apple pie with a slice of sharp cheddar cheese ..
