Anniversary Treats

Tomorrow is mine and Danny’s 9th wedding anniversary.  Because of our busy busy lives, we went out to dinner last night to celebrate.  We were planning to go out for dessert after, but I pulled a fast one and spent the day preparing the cutest dessert tray for the two of us.  I made mini-pecan pies and mini-banana cream pies and sugar cookies to wash it all down.

Pecan Pies:

I used whole wheat pastry flour, smart balance and skim milk.  I used a biscuit cutter and then added dough to build each one up a little bit.  I used 2 TBSP filling in each one, it looks like it is too much, but then they cave in once cooled.  These were SO good and the perfect two-biter.  I probably could have made 3 more mini-pies and still would have had some extra filling leftover.  Yum :)

Mini Banana Cream Pies:

I used 6 mini graham cracker crusts, but have tons of left over filling.  Next time, I will invite the family over and make 12 of them! I will also fill them a little bit less, this is a *very* rich dessert.
