Thank you. Cheese with an apple pie is an English/New England pairing.

Thank you BC. I like to make pies. In fact I like baking more than cooking.

I have heard of cheese with apple pie but have never had it. It is one of those things that makes me go "hmmmm?" Like pairing pickles with peanut butter. I would love to have a piece of that apple pie really cold, after it has been in the refrigerator overnight.

"Apple pie without cheese is like a kiss without a squeeze" Can't tell you how many times I've heard that. I still haven't had cheese with apple pie. I also don't put ice cream on crackers.

Fruit and cheese are a pretty common pairing: brie with apple chutney or cranberry sauce, and a cheese plate with grapes, for example.

You're right. The combination of apple pie and cheddar cheese just never appealed to me. I have a general dislike for sweet and savory together.

I would really dig into a plate of fruit and cheese, but once the fruit is cooked inside a pie crust it's a whole nother ball game! For me. I have no problem with what other people like.

My dad always ate his apple pie with a slice of cheese. I really need to try this.

I grew up with cheese and apple pie. It wasn't until I was into adulthood that I ever heard of ice cream with it. I don't like when it melts and my crust gets wet from it. I would rather have the cheese.
