Pear with gruyere crust






Today my friend Ian came over to make the pie from Pushing Daisies, pear with gruyere crust. Yesterday Brittany from Va Voom Vintage sent me a great recipe for it, with the gruyere mixed right in with the crust! I had just planned on grating cheese on top of the pie, but this method proved interesting and turned out nicely, tasted like a cheese cracker ;)
And my grandma really liked it, even asked for the recipe, and she's a master of pies! It was a successful pie day, listening to the Amelie soundtrack while slicing pears, and of course, watching Pushing Daisies while it baked :)
