Ingredients
Crust
  • 1½ cups flour
  • 1 stick butter (minus one tablespoon), cold
  • ⅓ cup Conebella Farm Cheddar, shredded
  • 4 tablespoons water (or more as needed)
Filling
  • 5 Bosc pears, peeled, cored, thinly sliced
  • 3 tablespoons (packed) brown sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon cloves
  • 1 tablespoon all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
Topping
  • ⅓ cup Conebella Farm Sharp Cheddar
  • A handful of walnuts
  • Egg (for brushing dough)
Materials: Parchment paper
Instructions
Crust:
  1. Cut butter into flour until the mixture is crumbly, like cornmeal. Add cheese. Mix. Add water (bearing in mind that the mix comes together as you work with it - you don't want it too sticky). Work the dough into a ball, wrap in plastic and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  2. Mix together sliced pears and lemon juice in a medium-sized bowl. Add brown sugar, cloves and flour and mix well. (Don't start this until you're just about ready to bake - sugar makes fruit release its juice.)
  3. Roll out the dough on floured surface, until it is about ⅛ to ¼-inch thick. Place fruit in center. Wrap dough around it.
  4. Top with cheese and walnuts. Brush with a lightly whisked egg.
  5. Bake at 400 for 50 minutes.
