Nothing says fall more than a hot fresh apple pie. We love a fresh spin on it with a few pears thrown in! Perfect for a fall weekend afternoon or as a dessert! We think it “pears” well with a sparkling wine. Our local favorite with the pie is Sparkling Point Brut Seduction with its lovely berry flavors.
Keep Life Delicious!
