Okay so you're stuffed after eating your big Thanksgiving or Christmas meal and only have room for 2 or 3 bites of pie....Then eat one of these little cuties and all is good in the world. OR eat 2, 3 or 4 of them just because they are so darn good. I say you don't feel as guilty eating things like this when they are small.


Recipe is my own.
