How to Decorate Pies and Tarts

Decorating is not limited to just cakes and cookies, but pies and tarts can be decorated, as well. Enjoy some of our recipe-tutorials where we bake mini-pies on a stick or make hand-held and shaped fruit pies. There's more in the How To Section of this website, and more Recipes.
