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

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.
