Apple-Cheddar Turnovers

The first time Allison heard that some people enjoy Cheddar cheese on top of their apple pie, she was just a kid, with a very limited palate, and her first reaction was, Huh?! As she got older and her tastes became more sophisticated, she soon learned to appreciate this American diner staple. The sharp creaminess of the Cheddar is a great savory foil to the sweet and tart apple filling, and that sweet-savory contrast is especially appropriate at brunch time. This is basically a portable version of that slice of piewhip up a bunch and enjoy them on the go or at your breakfast table with a cup of coffee, some morning sunlight, and something great on the stereo.
