I love using these recipes for desserts..You get the sweet and salty at the same time and the raw sugar gives your desserts or pies that Maple like flavor. About the milk or cream in the recipe use to brush on double pie crust desserts before baking and also sprinkle more raw sugar on top after you cut in your steam vents... Looks like regular pie crust but tastes altogether fantastic...enjoy these recipes with your next dessert...
