Apple Brandy Pies with Cheddar Crust

1 large green apple peeled, cored and chopped
1/4 cup Calvados (apple brandy in our Liquor Dept.)
2 tbsp. honey
1 (15- oz.) package refrigerated pie crusts
2/3 cup sharp Cheddar cheese finely shredded, divided

Prep: 20 minutes, Cook: 20 to 25 minutes, Makes: 20 small desserts

1. Preheat oven to 400°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
2. Melt butter in a medium skillet. Add apple and cook over medium heat for 5 minutes. Stir Calvados and honey into apples and cook over medium-high heat until excess liquid has cooked off; set aside to cool.
3. Unroll pie crusts and sprinkle 1/3 cup cheese onto each. Press cheese into crust with a rolling pin, rolling into a 10-inch circle. Cut into circles with a 3½-inch cutter. Place equal amounts of filling in each pastry circle, then brush edges of pastry lightly with water. Fold over to enclose filling and press with the tines of a fork to seal.
4. Place on prepared baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes or until lightly browned.
