Apple pie is one of the most perfect foods, and in miniature format, it's even better. The crust for these adorable mini pies is the same as for baby pecan pies - it's an easy crust and turns out perfectly every time!

I figured out how to get a picture beside my name-but i don't know how to get a picture in a comment-I will try and learn.
When you post a comment, one of the items along the top is "add images" - you could also add links, or video. If you click there, you should be able to upload an image and add it. Hope that helps!
Thanks. I guess I have to first have a picture loaded into the computer right? My husband knows how to do that and I need to learn to do it too. When posting a link, do I just copy and paste it into the comment?
Yes, you would need it on your computer first. To post a link, you would click on the button along the top of the comment box that says " link" and in the "link name" field you'd write the text you want displayed in the comment. Under "link URL" you'd paste the link, then you press "add link." I hope that helps!
