Total time: 
Serves: 4-6
  • 1½ cups flour
  • 1 stick butter (minus one tablespoon), cold
  • ⅓ cup Conebella Farm Cheddar, shredded
  • 4 tablespoons water (or more as needed)
  • 5 Bosc pears, peeled, cored, thinly sliced
  • 3 tablespoons (packed) brown sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon cloves
  • 1 tablespoon all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • ⅓ cup Conebella Farm Sharp Cheddar
  • A handful of walnuts
  • Egg (for brushing dough)
Materials: Parchment paper
  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.
