Whipped this recipe up in my head this morning while having my coffee. I needed something to submit in a carrot contest this week so here it is and I hope someone will try it and like it too.
They are a simple delightful treat and so very different. I would suggest serving them in small bite size pieces and serve on buffet for bridal showers, baby showers, wedding receptions or even for a tea party.
You can cut in large squares and serve for a nice dessert.
Remember the longer stored in the refrigerator the tastier they will be by picking up the tart lemon and pineapple flavor.
