There are fresh apples, golden yellow raisins, and an array of aromatic spices in the kitchen,

simply begging to become something scrumptious together.

“Hmm. What can we make?” I asked. The little light bulb went on. 🙂

“I bet a raisin & spice variation of our Warm Apple Compote could be very goooooood!”

Bruce wholeheartedly agreed… So, we tried it!

    • Thanks, Sammysgrammy! They really were! It is a basic [shortening free] whole wheat pie crust dough from the internet, cut into 6 inch rounds. The icing is powdered sugar, vanilla extract, and a bit of almond milk. Making crepes or pancakes is easier, but the tarts were well worth the time spent! Hope you decide to give the filling a try with your favorite recipe!
