Grandmother’s Pear Torte

Today I’m sharing a very special recipe with you, my Grandmother’s Pear Torte recipe. When I was a little girl, I remember my grandmother showing me how to make this sweet treat. This beautiful dessert calls for only six ingredients and is guaranteed to impress your guest.  Grandmother’s Pear Torte has become a common staple at family gathers in my household, and this is the recipe I usually choose to take to social gatherings. In fact, I have one sitting in the refrigeration ready for Thanksgiving tomorrow. 

Happy Thanksgiving!!

  • Your grandmother was a wonderful cook. She taught me to make meatloaf when I was 9 years old. I was staying a few weeks with them when they lived in Snyder. Mike, Carol Joan and Loyd Wayne rode back to Slaton with me on the passenger train.
