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.
