Preheat oven to 425°F. Mix flour and salt in large bowl; cut in shortening with pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in cheese. Sprinkle with 5 Tbsp. of the water while mixing lightly with fork; shape into ball. (Mix in 1 or 2 Tbsp. additional water if dough is too dry to shape into ball.) Place dough on lightly floured surface; roll out to 14x10-inch rectangle.
Toss apples with remaining ingredients. Let stand 5 min. Spoon into 13x9-inch baking dish. Cover with dough; cut slits in top of dough to vent.
Bake 35 min. or until pastry is golden brown and apples are tender.
