After baking a double batch of Gail Herbest's moon shaped recipe.. "Pie in the sky tarts." (I used apple pie filling.) Be warned.....They were so good ..they disappeared overnight! You can see my pictures on her site. Today I had to make this is my revised triangle recipe...with cherry pie filling. They can be frozen individually... if they last that long!
