Great for Imbolic, with the pears being a winter fruit and the spring baby spinach you have a great balance of both seasons.

(no ratings)

Crisps are a quick and easy dessert. I like to use whatever fruit is in season: blueberries, strawberries, peaches, cherries, plums, pears, and apples.

I use two cups of fruit in this recipe so that each person gets a full serving of fruit, but when you buy berries they come in pints. One pint of berries yields about 1 1/2 cups. That means you're either a half-cup short or you need to buy two and have a cup leftover. Save the extra berries for your morning cereal, freeze them for smoothies--or just add them to the crisp. The more fruit, the merrier.

You can use frozen (no need to thaw before baking) or fresh fruit in this recipe.

Serve any leftovers atop plain yogurt for breakfast.

Mini Apple Tarts
Very Good 4.3/5
(85 ratings)

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.
