  1. 1
    Blend flour and 1/4 tsp. salt in medium bowl. Cut in 1/2 cup butter with pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in cheese. Add cold water gradually, tossing gently until moisture is absorbed. Shape into ball. On lightly floured surface, roll to 19"x12" rectangle. Cut 1" strip off of 19" end. Cut remaining dough into six 6" squares. Place apple (upside down) in center of each square. In small bowl, combine 4 tbsp. sugar, 2 tbsp. brown sugar and nuts. Stuff center of each apple with sugar mixture. Fold dough up tightly around each apple, sealing seams well. Place on ungreased cookie sheet seam side down. Brush dough with milk and prick with fork. Cut leaf design out of remaining dough, brush with milk and place on top of apples. Bake at 400°F for 30 minutes or until apples are fork tender. If pastry browns too quickly, cover with foil.
