I found a recipe a couple years ago for a Pear Pie with Cheddar Cheese crumb crust. In a hurry one day I adapted the recipe to make just a crisp. In winter when I could only find canned pears I tried it & while the pears are a little softer it's still very tasty. Serve with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
