Individual Cherry Tarts

Individual Cherry Tarts

Bible study officially started up this week for FALL! I can’t believe Autumn is basically here. The school bus driving by all day long for preschool, kindergartners and regular all day school keeps the streets busy. The leaves turning and falling upon my garden. The crisp, cool mornings. FALL-IS-HERE.

I love the season of pumpkins, anything pumpkin that is makes me extremely excited and warm inside. Pumpkin bread, pumpkin scones, pumpkin pie, pumpkin lattes and MUCH more. I love pumpkin.

Though I love pumpkin because it means fall is in full force, today’s treats have nothing to do with pumpkins. They are tasty but not pumpkiny.

I made these for bible study brunch for the launch of our new season of life, digging deeper into the book of Ephesians. I love Ephesians and am excited to see what this season brings.

Lets get into the tarts!
