    Thanks again Al.
    I hope it's acceptable to cross post these recipes from my 'Main' thread into their respective sub-forums.
    Others can find a Side/Veggie or Dessert easier, these sub-forums get more traffic and I can index the recipe individually.

    Thanks, they're indeed.
    I've been ordered to make more today.
    But they're gonna have to settle for canned fillings today, I used up all the fresh fruit yesterday.

    Per request I made two more today.
    These didn't get iced, these were sprinkled with coarse raw sugar before baking.
    And I used canned apple pie filling which wasn't near as good as my homemade.

    Looks real good Chile. I figure the fresh fruit ones would be a lot better than just using pie filling.
    What I REALLY like is how handy these are. Unlike a traditional pie which requires slicing and sharing, these come in individual servings. MY KINDA DESERT!!!!! LOL

    Gary, these are a pretty good size, these are a foot longer or better.
    You can get three BIG servings or easily six smaller, especially if served with ice cream.
