To most die-hard bakers this is a silly dessert, but I challenge them to try it warm. (Fresh from the oven or reheated in the microwave, it doesn't matter.) Don't forget the whipped or ice cream on the side.

Take a piece of this Apple Pie. Put it on a microwavable plate. Add a slice of really good sharp cheddar cheese. Heat for 25 to 30 seconds or until the cheese is melted. This is good for dessert, breakfast or even an afternoon pick-me-up.
