It’s always gratifying when people contact me on social media and complement my recipes. And then there are people who leave rude comments about my beard. But what really makes my day is when others truly grasp the deliciousness and heritage of my Grandma Kelly’s pear crunch pie. It’s a staple when my family gathers for special occasions. Each bite is filled with admiration for my grandma. I’m happy to share the recipe with you and I hope it adds sweetness to your holiday season. P.S.: The beard is not going anywhere.
