"Without a doubt, this is the best pie in my arsenal of recipes. It is a pear-filled pie topped with a crumble of brown sugar and Cheddar cheese."

FOR THE CRUMBLE
shredded Cheddar cheese
FOR THE PIE
peeled and sliced pears
fresh lemon juice
unbaked pie crust
Amazingly good! Very caramel-ly! I was lazy and didn't want to bother with a pie crust, so just made it as a crisp. I even left the peels on. I will make this again and again (a good way to use up too many ripe pears).
No good at all the first day. Very weird to mix a mild pear flavor with a strong cheese flavor. It was much better the second and third day. Still, not enough to make it again.
This was amazing. I made it with combination of two types of pears and some granny smith apples. Next time, I might even make it as a crumble/crisp because the crust was not even needed!
I've been meaning to write my review for a few weeks now...after having made this pie 3 times already this Fall. I wasn't too sure about the Cheddar cheese but was it ever the best! The topping is just sweet enough to offset the pear filling. We had so many left-over pears and this was a wonderful way to use them up. I even made a pie for my neighbors..they loved it! Thanks much for sharing.
Delicious My son-in-law tried to eat it all
YUMMY! Made it exact and loved it! Used sharp cheddar but you really don't taste the cheese - will probably use a little more next time. Thank you!
Very good, but I'd like it better with sharp cheddar cheese. Family loves this recipe!
I made this as mini pies in a muffin tin when I realized I had no available pie plates! This was good, but I was expecting a little more from the cheddar; I couldn't even tell it was there. This does taste like apple pie, just a touched more sweet. This is def worth trying & I will prob make it again, should I have pears in need of using in the future. If I make it again, I think I'll shred my own cheese (used pre-shredded from a bag) and see if that helps.
