Pear Pie with Gruyere Cheese CrustA few years ago, I fell in love with a TV show called Pushing Daisies. It was about a man called Ned, a girl called Chuck, and PIES! And death. But for now, I am concentrating on the pies. Ned is a piemaker, and during the course of the show makes many delicious sounding desserts. The one that stuck with me was a Pear Pie with Gruyere cheese baked into the crust. Intriguing, no?

Recently, I decided to try this pie on my own. I went to the Strip District to load up on fresh ingredients. I had never been “shopping in the Strip” before, as Pittsburghers love to do. It was a real treat to go down there with a list and make my way through the busy sidewalks to find what I needed. I love when Pittsburgh doesn’t feel like Pittsburgh.

I found this recipe at one of my favorite food blogs, Blondie and Brownie.

I shared slices of my hot Pear Pie with Ryan and Brianna, and they seemed to agree that it was great! I loved it (if I do say so myself). The next day, I took the remaining slices in to work to share with Mari and Chef Chuck. Success! Two more enthusiastic positive reviews of my pie! It was a lot of work, but I felt a sense of accomplishment when my friends enjoyed my dessert. I would encourage any pear lovers out there to try this unique and delicious pie!
