Spiced Pear and Gorgonzola Pie

This pie from Food52 and Local Milk blogger Beth Kirby just screams (carols?) holiday season. Sweet, tangy gorgonzola pairs perfectly with warm, spiced pears — we dare you not to enjoy a slab à la mode.

And I haven’t made just any pear pie. No, this one dances with the savory.

Make it with your favorite pie crust, but my favorite for this pie is a leaf lard and buttermilk crust.
