1/3 cup vegetable shortening
6 oz shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup ice water
8 cup peeled, sliced apples - (about 8 me, dium apples)
2/3 cup sugar
3/4 tsp cinnamon
Combine 2 cups flour, corn meal and salt. Cut in 1/3 cup margarine

Add water, 1 tablespoon at a time, stirring lightly until mixture
forms a ball. Divide dough into 2 parts, 1 slightly larger; shape
each to form ball. Wrap securely in plastic wrap or wax paper; chill
about 30 minutes. Roll large ball on lightly floured surface to form
11-inch circle. Fit loosely into 9-inch pie plate; trim. Roll
remaining dough to form 12-inch square. Cut into 12 x 3/4-inch
Heat oven to 400 F. Combine remaining 1/3 cup flour, apples, sugar
and cinnamon; spoon into crust. Dot with remaining 2 tablespoons
margarine. Weave strips atop filling to make a lattice crust. Trim
even with outer rim of pie plate. Fold lower crust over strips; seal
and flute. Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until crust is light golden
brown, shielding edges with aluminum foil if necessary. Cool
*NOTE: To make a double crust pie, roll remaining dough to form
10-inch circle instead of cutting strips. Prepare filling as
directed. Place top crust over filling; trim. Turn edges under;
flute. Cut slits in top crust to allow steam to escape.

Food Tips of the Week
Dieting made easy
When deciding on a weight loss program, it is essential to try to restrict your intake of salt, fat and refined carbohydrate.
Some reduced carb diet guidlines:
* Replace sugar with a low carb substitute such as splenda.
Most recipes that require sugar can be changed to use splenda instead. It doesn't weigh the same so you will need to experiment a little and it may not work for every recipe, but it does bake up nice most of the time.
