If you are anything like us, you will be gathering with friends and family for Memorial Day. Not only do we gather to remember those who gave their lives serving in our military, but also to celebrate the wonderful freedoms of our country. Celebrating with friends and family usually means a crowd and we have learned that buffet-style eating is the best way to feed everyone easily. Creating simple, individual desserts is an easy way to share a yummy treat and make it easy to transport and to share among guests. Mini star pies are not only theme appropriate, but they are a crowd pleasing treat that will be sure to make you the star of the party!
