Reviewer: Wendy Andersen
These are great and so easy to make!! I sometime vary the fruit in them or at parties I leave all the fruit out and have a variety of fresh fruits with a sugar glaze around the serving plate so guests can add their own. I like baking them in mini cheesecake pans. Great recipe !!!
