Yield 6 to 8 servings


  • 6 medium pears, peeled, cored, and sliced (about 7 cups)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • Dash of salt
  • 1 tablespoon butter or margarine

How to Make It

  1. Toss pear slices with lemon juice in a large bowl; add sugar and next 4 ingredients, tossing gently to combine. Spoon pear mixture into a greased 10" x 6" x 2" baking dish; dot with butter.

  2. Roll Cheddar Cheese Pastry out on a lightly floured surface to a 10" x 6" rectangle; cut lengthwise into 1/2" strips. Arrange strips in a lattice design over pear mixture; trim excess pastry as needed.

  3. Bake at 350° for 1 hour or until pastry is golden.
