Hard Cider Macaroni and Cheese

This recipe is from  Bakeaholic Mama and even though macaroni and cheese isn't something I eat often, I knew I had to give it a try once I had seen the ingredient list, does it get any better than warm cheese and cider baked into macaroni? the apple cider flavour was really string in this but I loved it.

1 box of macaroni
1 cup hard cider
1 cup heavy cream
3 tbsp flour
3 tbsp all purpose flour
1 granny smith apple, peeled and diced
1 onion
18 oz sharp cheddar

Prepare the pasta according to package directions.

In a medium pan, melt the butter and add the diced onion and apple, cook for 5 minutes.  Sprinkle over the flour and cook for another minute before adding the cider and heavy cream.  Bring to a boil, stirring constantly, reduce heat and add in 12 oz of the cheese and stir until melted.

Combine the cheese sauce and cooked pasta, pour into a large baking dish and top with the remaining cheese. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes.
