Healthy, Fruity Breakfast Hand Tarts
Very Good 4.2/5
(20 ratings)

Mini Apple Tarts
Very Good 4.3/5

Instead of a whole pie, try making bite-size tarts. The diminutive desserts cook quicker and are automatically portion controlled. Plus, they're easier to make for a crowd, and there's no need for a fork and plate.
