Granola Apple Crisp

6 to 8

5 or 6 Golden Delicious apples
1 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 1/3 cups prepared or packaged granola
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup chopped nuts
1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened

1) Pare apples if desired; core and slice to equal 6 cups. Combine with cheese and cinnamon; place in greased 2-quart baking dish. Combine granola, sugar and nuts; cut in butter. Sprinkle over apple mixture.

2) Bake at 375 degrees F. 30-40 minutes or until topping is golden brown and apples are tender. If necessary, cover partway through baking time to prevent over browning. Serve warm.
