Apple Pie Toppings?

Maybe it's a Norwegian thing but my grandma used to put a slice of cheddar cheese on top of hers and let it melt a bit. That's how I do mine and love it that way. I think it may have something to do with the cheese taking some of the sweetness away from the taste and add a bit of saltiness. Husband thinks I'm weird as he likes vanilla ice cream on his or with his.

What's your poison? :P

My grandpa, who was of German and PA Dutch descent always did the cheddar cheese thing, too. I've never tried it, but I should. Rest of the family usually opts for vanilla ice cream. If I have ice cream it has to be on the side, not on top. Just one of my quirks!

My paternal grandparents who were Scotch/Irish/English did the sharp cheddar cheese thing, but Dad always liked vanilla ice cream. My maternal grandma who was German/Irish gave everyone a choice (most took cheese), but she usually opted for vanilla ice cream, as does my step-mom who is PA German (she thinks the idea of cheese on apple pie is disgusting). Me .... I like cheese!

With my home made vanilla bean ice cream!


I don't do the cheddar cheese with pie but, I do agree that cheddar and vanilla ice cream are good together.

OK, my Dad (Ukrainian) LOVED the oldest cheddar he could find on his apple pie. It is cool to see how many people like it that way.

I personally like my apple pie cold. If I put anything on it at all it would be a drizzle of caramel sauce, but I hardly ever do that.

I like my pie topped with cider sauce and vanilla ice cream. One of my favorite pies is from Kid's Inc. at Apple Hill, CA.

Bang did you say the N word? We cannot say that awful word here. How do I post the recipe for N**** Brownies? There is a N**** Chef and isn't there a movie called The N**** and the Dead? OK, getting off my soap box. You can't fight city hall.
