5 c Tart apples,cored/thin slice

1/4 c Sweet red wine

1/4 c All-purpose flour

1/8 ts Salt

2 c All-purpose flour(see NOTE1)

1 ts Salt

2 tb Shortening

5 tb Cold water

3/4 c Sugar

1 tb Lemon juice

2 tb Sugar

3 tb Butter or margarine

1 c Shredded Cheddar cheese

2/3 c Shortening

2/3 c Lard

Place apples. 3/4 cup sugar, the wine and lemon juice in 3-quart saucepan. Cover and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until apples are just tender, 7 to 8 minutes. Mix 1/4 cup flour, 2 tablespoons sugar and 1/8 teaspoon salt; stir into apple mixture. Heat to boiling, stirring constantly. Boil and stir 1 minute. Remove from heat. Stir in butter. Cool to room temperature. Heat oven to 425'. Measure 2 cups flour, the cheese and 1 teaspoon salt into bowl; cut in shortening or lard. Sprinkle in water, 1 tablespoon at a time, mixing until all flour is moistened and pastry almost cleans side of bowl (1 to 2 teaspoons water can be added if necessary.) Gather pastry into ball; divide in half and shape into 2 flattened rounds on lightly floured cloth-covered board. Roll one round 2 inches larger than inverted 8-inch pie plate with floured stockinet-covered rolling pin. Fold pastry into quarters; place in pie plate. Unfold and ease into pie plate. Turn apple mixture into pastry-lined pie plate. Trim overhanging edge of pastry 1/2 inch from rim of pie plate. Roll second round of pastry. Fold into quarters; cut slits so steam can escape. Place over filling and unfold. Trim overhanging edge of pastry 1 inch from rim of pie plate. Fold and roll top edge under lower edge, pressing on rim to seal; flute. Cover edge with 2- to 3-inch strip of sluminum foil to prevent excess browning. Bake 25 to 30 minutes; remove foil. Bake 15 minutes. NOTE1: If using self-rising flour, omit 1 teaspoon salt. Pie crusts made with self-rising flour difer in flavor and texture from those made with plain flour. NOTE2: If desired, 1 package (11 ounces) pie crust mix or sticks can be substituted for the pastry.
