    These little tasty treats are always a hit. They taste just like an apple pie, except they are mini sized and easy to eat. They are great to take to a party because there is not cutting and serving needed. People always rave about these. I think their pretty tasty too! My hubby loves to eat them warm with vanilla ice cream on the side. Maybe a little caramel sauce drizzled over top! Mmmmm...

    Recipe #286704

    This is an interesting little dessert perfect for a summer cookout. It is enjoyed by kids and adults alike.

    Recipe #169094

    A too cute idea from . This is a great gift-giving idea for a wedding, party favors or everyday. The half pint jars with wide mouth and straight sides can be purchased and/or ordered from your local hardware store, Amazon, Fred Meyer's or a feed store for about $9. Also, keep a lookout at garage sales. The jars are made of tempered glass and can handle the heat. Vary the fillings and it has been suggested making pumpkin or even chicken pot pies. These can be baked immediately, but designed to be baked frozen. Keep the heat high to promote a crisp crust, otherwise a lower heat will melt the butter producing a soggy crust. Don't worry about how long these can be frozen for they probably won't last that long. One more tip, it has been suggested to place a silpat sheet on the bottom of the baking sheet to prevent the cups from sliding around. For best show, allow to cool and pop the pies from the jars onto a serving plate.

    Recipe #418077

    Butter tarts are a Canadian tradition. Waaaay back in the 1970s, a national contest here in Canada concluded that these butter tarts, originating from Wilkie's Bakery in Orillia, Ontario, were the best. I certainly think so and it's the only recipe I use. Add a sprinkle of toasted walnuts when you add the raisins, if you wish, or use only walnuts if you don't like raisins.

    Recipe #14756

    A neat idea for gift giving or for those special occasions where you want to "dress up" plain old chocolate covered strawberries. Very easy and relatively inexpensive, especially compared to the store-bought ones. **yield stated below depends on how many of the strawberries are good enough to use, per carton**

    Recipe #157160

    Lovely tarts which are SO popular in this part of the world...Especially popular during festivals! Amount of tarts that you can make is just an estimate

    Recipe #152749

    Spring in South West France is a gastronomic feast.....all our local markets are overflowing with luscious new vegetables and fruits. My favourites are the little "wild woodland" fraises des bois strawberries, which I am growing in my own garden this year. I thought I would share this pretty way of serving these deliciously sweet strawberries with you - I call them a flavour explosion of strawberry essence! If you cannot get fraises des bois, use seasonal and small strawberries instead. You can buy barquette tins quite easily in France, but if you can’t find them locally, this recipe will work equally well with ordinary round tart tins, as I have used for the photo. Alternatively you could make one big tart. (Barquette tins are shaped like small gondola boats!)

    Recipe #229472

    This is such a wonderful way of serving your chocolate truffles at Christmas or New Year - or indeed any special winter festival! I do make my own truffles for this, but you can buy ready-made truffles for ease and speed of course! I love to see my family and friend's faces when I bring the coffee and "chocolates" out with this Truffle Tree! Allow yourself plenty of time to assemble this, the plant pot and the tree "trunk" can be prepared beforehand; once the chocolate truffle tree has been assembled, it will be fine for up to 2 days before you need to serve it, stored in a very cool and dry place - NOT a fridge however. I have made this with a well-known gold wrapped chocolate nut truffle before, as well as the white chocolate and coconut version by the same company! The truffles shown in my photos are local hand-made truffles, but any "firm" high chocolate truffle is fine. I have my own truffle recipe posted on zaar, Recipe #271012 which also works very well with this tree! Have fun - and just watch your guest's faces when you bring this out!! NB: You can also make this with marshmallows and other suitable sweets or candy, especially for children.

    Recipe #270171

    A Symphony or rather a selection of fresh cream chocolate truffles, this is my basic recipe with a few indulgent added extras.......such as toasted almonds, stem ginger with brandy or rum! These decadent rich truffles are perfect to finish of a dinner party with, especially if you serve them on a Truffle Tree - Recipe #270171 Do try to use very high quality minimum 70% solids chocolate, it really does make such a difference to the taste. They also freeze very well - which means you can make them in advance and at leisure; they only take about 1 hour to defrost at room temperature.

    Recipe #271012

    These sound very yummy indeed! I originally found this recipe in the UK cooking magazine Olive.

    Recipe #365732

    From Healthy Cooking magazine--individual serving sized baked Alaskas, made with reduced fat strawberry ice cream. You can use other flavors, too, to make other kinds of baked Alaskas than Neapolitan: mint for Grasshopper, coffee for Mocha, etc. You will need some foil muffin liners for this. I haven't tried it yet, but will when I get the opportunity. You could prepare the ice cream/wafer part in advance, then make the meringue and finish it up shortly before serving--I'd suggest placing plastic wrap over it to prevent the ice cream from drying out and not leaving it in for more than a few hours, maybe 8 or so (such as preparing in the morning to serve the same evening).

    Recipe #354733

    From TOH magazine. Although the recipe calls for the parfaits to be served in parfait or cocktail glasses, I think they'd be nice scaled down to fit in a smaller glass, such as shot glasses. The ribbon of bright red strawberries in the middle of the creamy pink mousse looks so pretty! The prep time doesn't include time for the berry mixture to chill.

    Recipe #373476

    From TOH magazine. These pretty little tartlets would make a great addition to a mini-dessert tray! Times are estimates and don't include chilling time.
