  1. Heat oven to 375°F.
  2. Roll out pie pastry on a lightly floured surface to an 11-inch circle. Transfer pastry to a parchment paper-lined baking sheet.

  4. Beat the 1 cup cheddar, cream cheese, egg yolk and 4 tablespoons sugar in a bowl until smooth. Spread cheddar mixture in the center of pastry to within 2 inches of edges. 
  5. Spoon half of the reserved apple slices in a single layer over filling. Sprinkle with remaining cheddar and 1/4 cup cranberries. Top with remaining apple slices and cranberries. Fold pastry edges up over filling. (Center will be uncovered.) Lightly beat egg white; brush over pastry. Sprinkle pastry and filling with remaining sugar.
  6. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until filling is bubbly and crust is golden brown. Let stand for 15 minutes before serving.
