  • Combine the flour and salt; form a well in the middle of the mixture. Dissolve the yeast in a little of the water-milk mixture and pour into the well along with the remaining liquid. Knead until a smooth dough forms. Cover and let rise at room temperature until the dough has doubled in volume.
  • Pear Filling: Combine the wine, lemon juice, and sugar in a saucepan; bring to a boil. Add the pears, cover, and simmer for 3–5 minutes. Remove from heat and allow the pears to cool in the cooking liquid.
  • Cheese Filling: Combine all ingredients and season to taste.
  • On a floured surface, roll out the dough into a 45x32 cm rectangle and cut into 12 small rectangles (15x8 cm each). Grease loaf pans with butter and fill with alternating layers of dough, pears, and cheese filling, ending with a layer of dough on top. Cover and let rise for 45–60 minutes. Brush the tops of the loaves with the thinned egg yolk and sprinkle with lemon pepper.
  • Preheat oven to 200°C. Place loaves on a lower rack and bake for approximately 35 minutes.
