"An unusual combination but very good. Peeled or unpeeled pears of any type will do." — TerryWilson

peeled and sliced Bosc pears
fresh lemon juice
light brown sugar, packed
shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
I made it gluten free by substituting gluten free flour and adding 1/4 cup chopped pecans to the topping. This recipe is a keeper. I used the hard canning pears we have here in LA. I put them in the microwave for 5 minutes to soften up the pears. It was delicious!
I found this recipe and tried it because I had an abundance of pears. I gave it to my 14 year old daughter to fix because I had to work. She did a great job fixing it! It was delightful!
Great recipe! We made it with mild Cheddar and really liked it. The cheddar gives an interesting flavor dynamic.
Very, very good. I would recommend to anyone.
Four large bartlett pears equalled 6 cups. I like spices, but with fruit I want to taste the fruit more so I reduced cinnamon to 1/2t & cloves to 1/16t. Instead of buttering the dish, I put a T of butter in the dish & let it melt in the oven. Swirled it around & continued. I used 3T, not 4, unsalted butter in the topping. 'Cheese flavor isn't very noticeable, but it can be seen a bit. I partially peeled the pears. Something left an odd feel. I couldn't tell if it was the peel or the cheese. I'd try mild vs sharp since it's easier to melt & not get too firm. Good, but I don't think I'll make again; but if I do, I'm peeling completely.
