spring is here!
and with it another of my favorite moments… gathering around a common table with those we love eating delicious menus of yummy food.
whether yours is a large crowd or small, these grain-free mini-pies are a great addition to the dessert table. they are sweet and individually portioned, and i can’t imagine how anyone could turn down their very own pie! plus they’re made with this deliciously perfect grain-free pie crust that i love with all my heart.
friends, happy easter to you… i’m thankful for you!
