  • 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


  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  4. 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.
  5. Roll out the chilled dough and line a pie dish. Add the pork and apple mixture, then sprinkle grated cheddar cheese on top.
  6. Cover with another layer of rolled-out dough, crimp the edges to seal, and make small slits on top for ventilation.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes or until the crust is golden brown.
  8. Let it cool slightly before serving.
