Individual Cherry Almond Crisps

 

 

 

My favorite desserts are individually baked and served. I love mini desserts. Instead of cake, I prefer cupcakes, and instead of a slice of pie I enjoy my own single serving in a ramkin. If you prefer to bake this up as a regular pie, by all means do so. But I'm going to go the ramkin route!

This recipe was orignally by The Pioneer Woman, although I changed it a bit because I couldn't find frozen tart cherries anywhere on this island!!! For the original recipe, click here.
