MINIATURE PEAR PIES

Every now and then, a food comes by that just makes you think, “yes, this is meant to be eaten.” Okay, no one has actually ever thought that. That was a forced introduction. But, you will get what I mean when you make these. They’re just so perfectly sized and made to be eaten. All food is made to be eaten. My fumbling is not doing this justice. Let’s start over. Hello! Why didn’t you ever think to just slice a fruit in half and wrap it in puff pastry to have a pie rather than enduring the torturous process of hand-making a whole one?

No, that’s not good either. How did it become so snarky? Okay.

I’m just a girl, standing in front of a miniature pear pie, asking it to love her.
