Betty’s Bingham Variation
August is Albariño celebration days. What better way to celebrate than by making this wonderful suggestion from Shannon for a Pear Pecan Spice Galette.
Fresh local pecans from Orchard Meadow was a great way to start. Their pecans are often for sale at Wolfforth Farmers Market in Wolfforth, Texas. The pecans are grown in Meadow.
I went with the store bought pie crust to save some time. Which made this dish extra easy and fun to make. Just laid out the crust and started piling on fruit, nuts, and cinnamon mix.
Then the baking. Half the enjoyment was just the smell.
The Albariño was a wonderful combination with the cinnamon fruit pastry. Great idea, thank you, Shannon.
Keep in mind that our 2019 Albarino is included in our “Last Days of Summer Bundle”.
