Cheddar-Apple Bundles

It might sound like an odd combination, but these are the perfect combination of sweet and savory. Pretty easy to whip up and great for the upcoming Holidays for big family brunches. In fact, the first time I made these was Christmas ’09.

Cheddar-Apple Bundles
a Better Homes and Gardens recipe

1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup chopped pecans
2 cups all-purpose flour
8 oz. cheddar cheese, shredded
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
1/2 cup butter, cut up
6-8 tablespoons cold water
2 medium Granny Smith or Jonathan apples, peeled, cored and chopped
3 tablespoons fig jam or apricot preserves

Combine brown sugar and pecans; set aside. In food processor, combine flour, 1/2 cup cheese, granulated sugar and 1/4 teaspoon salt; cover and process with one on/off turn. Add butter. Cover; process with several on/off turns until size of small peas. With processor running, slowly add water to make dough come together in a ball. Gently knead until smooth.

Preheat oven to 400 F. Divide dough in 8 pieces. For each bundle, on floured surface roll dough in 8-inch circle. Place 3 tablespoons cheese and 1/4 cup apple in center. Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon nut mixture. Brush dough edges with water. Bring up dough edges and press together to seal. Sealed sides up, place on parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until pastry is golden. Spoon preserves on each bundle. Cool 20 minutes on baking sheet. Serve warm.
