Mini Chocolate Almond Pie

I served these individual treats for dessert for some friends recently and the presentation was as exciting as the dessert itself. Everyone loved that fact that they had their own mini pie to enjoy and that it was made with healthy, unprocessed ingredients . It was a light dessert with a smooth consistency that complimented the meal perfectly.

    So, I had to buy that pan just to make these! I can’t wait to try them. Do you have any other recipes to use with the mini cheesecake pan? Thanks for sharing!

    Could you make it in a larger pan and just cut it?

      You can definitely make this on a larger pan, but you might need to adjust the recipe to fit the size of the pan you choose to make this.
