Stilton Walnut and Apple Pie

Stilton Walnut and Apple Pie

This is a lovely Pie. It’s not heavy at all, and it’s moist on the inside and lovely and crispy on the outside. Of course it is really tasty nice and it looks like a pie, although I also thought about calling it a ‘crumble’. It looks like a cross between a pie and a crumble I suppose!

You can even freeze it or reheat it. You can call this vegetarian or vegan if you add the right cheese.

I usually serve this Stilton Walnut and Apple Pie along with the cheese board – I like to be different and serve this as on the side of cheese board. I realise this is a bit unusual, but give it a try – it’s a great idea, trust me. My husband’s friend loved the idea when we served it – he went home and made one for himself, because most men seem to love Stilton. Most men apart from mine, that is, and that is why I use half Stilton and half Wensleydale as he loves it.

Having said that, you can’t use just any cheese in this recipe, it has to be a crumbly cheese. You can use some goat’s cheese as some types are quite crumbly.

So to inspire you to try this recipe, I invite you to close your eyes and imagine you are sitting by the fire with a glass of port in one hand and slice of Stilton Walnut and Apple Pie in the other – just imagine…… bliss.

Lets see how easy it is to make:

Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to gas mark 4 / 180
  2. In a round 7.5" tin, place a grease-proof sheet (like in the picture) or cut some grease-proof paper if you don't have the pre-cut sheets. I think they are brilliant to use you can get then in most stores.
  3. In a large bowl, add all the ingredients apart from the butter and the eggs, and mix well.
  4. Now mix the butter and the eggs together then pour over the dried ingredient, pour half of the mixture into the prepared tin, then spread to the edges evenly.
  5. Now crumble in your choice of the cheese. I used Stilton one side then Wensleydale cheese on the other side. It is really up to you what cheese you use. I think those two work well.
  6. Scatter the rest of the mixture, but don't smooth it, this way you will have a rustic, crumble look. Preheated oven and back on a lower shelf then cook for about 1hour.
  7. Remove from the oven, and sprinkle the bread crumbs over then sprinkle the demerara sugar and leave in the tin for 15 mins.
  8. Put on wire rack to cool completely, then remove the grease-proof paper and serve cold on a cheese board it will look very pretty, or hot as a snack.
