Cheddar cheese recipe blog image

Tartetatin is an upside down French apple pie.


  • Home made short crust pastry or store bought (as per your wish)
  • 3 table spoons flour for rolling
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 5-6 Himachali apples or any apples you find at your nearby store- Peeled , cored and Diced .
  • 50gms Amiksa Cheddar cheese grated

How to make:

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 °C.
  2. Roll out the pastry gently until ¼ inch thick and place it on a plate baking sheet and let it chill in fridge to chill.
  3. In a deep 10inch skillet (which can ideally be used in an oven also) over medium heat, melt the butter.
  4. Once the butter is melted, add sugar and gently caramalise it until amber. Usually takes around 7-8 minutes.
  5. Add the apples in a neat arrangement and cook them in the caramel until medium soft. Remove from heat and add the grated Amiksa cheddar cheese.
  6. At this if you are not using a cook & bake skillet, transfer it to a baking dish. Place the pastry over the apples gently tucking the folds into the corner.
  7. Make a small hole in the centre of the pastry to let steam come out.
  8. Bake until the crust is puffed up and golden brown.
  9. Remove from heat and let cool for 10minutes. Place your serving plate on top and gently flip such that the apples are on top.
  10. Add shards of Amiksa cheddar cheese as decoration on top. The sweetness of the apples combined with the salty mild cheddar makes a wonderful combination bursting with complex flavors.
  11. Serve hot.
