"Apple Pie and Cheese"

   "Apple pie and ice cream" is "pie a la mode."  But "apple pie and cheese" seems to be just that, and has slipped through the radar.  Is it an old New England dish?
   While in Ghana (!), one dessert we had was apple pie with ice cream, and one of the oldsters mentioned apple pie and cheese.
   It's also "apple pie and cheddar."

   April 1915, SPY (International Apple Shippers' Association), Vol. V, No. 3, pg. 10:
_Apple Pie and Cheese_
By Eugene Field
O tempora!  O mores!
   What profanations these
That seek to dim the glories
   Of apple-pie and cheese!
Pg. 11:
I'm glad I've got three willing boys
   To hang around and tease
Their mother for the filling joys
   Of apple-pie and cheese.
No flippant, sugared notion
   Shall my appetite appease,
Or bate my soul'd devotion
   To apple-pie and cheese!
Pg. 12:
And these feelings are so grateful,
   Says I, "Julia, if you please,
I'll take another plateful
   Of that applie-pie and cheese!"
No matter what conditions
   Dyspeptic come to feaze,
Pg. 13:
The best of all physicians
   Is apple-pie and cheese!
Pg. 14:
But I, when I undress me
   Each night, upon my knees
Will ask the Lord to bless me
   With apple-pie and cheese!
