APPLE AND MUNSTER FILO PIE (Tarte filo aux pommes et Munster)

(Tarte filo aux pommes et Munster)

You should have seen me the day I found Munster in my deli!!! I am not here for any advertisement of any sort, but I have to recognize that the cheese department of Bayley and Sage, is full of terribly good ones : Reblochon, Époisses, Comté, Munster, Tomme des Pyrénées, Chabichou and even some Langres which is quite rare actually...
The Munster proposed has an AOC and is not too strong. Once cooked, it's a masterpiece, nothing else...
If you are eager to learn, Munster is THE Alsatian cheese. 
The name Munster came from "monastère" (monastery). This cheese had been created in ? Guess a date ? 7, yes Munster cheese had been created in the 7 century by Benedictine monks who came from Italy to built houses in Alsace...
If you cannot find Munster, take any Brie or Camembert instead... It is quite fashionable in France to cook pastry with filo or brick sheets. And the combination with the apples and Munster is out of this world... Taste this amazing pie with a nice green salad seasoned with shallots.  

Wine pairing : Gewurstraminer Vendanges Tardives (White) from Alsace.
