Cheddar Pear Pie



I've been craving this pie for weeks and I finally made one tonight. Using pears instead of apples gives it a more subtle sweetness and the cheese topping is a bit salty so it's got alot goin on. Here's the recipe if you'd like to try making one for your peeps:

Ingredients:

4 large ripe pears, peeled and thinly sliced
1/3 c sugar
1 tbsp cornstarch
1/8 tsp salt
1 unbaked pastry shell {9 inch}

Topping:

1/2 c shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 c flour
1/4 c sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 c butter, melted

In a large bowl, combine pears, sugar, cornstarch and salt; toss gently to coat. Pour into pastry shell,

For topping, combine the cheese, flour, sugar and salt; stir in butter until crumbly. Sprinkle over filling.

Bake at 425 degrees for 25-30 minutes.

If you try the recipe be sure and let me know how you liked it!
