If I was forced to choose, I'd say that the dessert I enjoy eating the most is pie. And tart. Oh, maybe cookies. Or ice cream? In any event, I spent a good part of the week baking tarts and pies.
These are mini vegan apple pies baked in the muffin pan. These were inspired by British baker Angela Boggiano.
This is a pear ginger tart adapted and veganized from a recipe listed at allrecipes.com, where I troll often.
The crust is made from crushed vegan gingersnaps. The filling is a lightly sweented "cream cheese." The pears are lightly sweetened and tossed in cinnamon and ground ginger. These were fantastic.
