Fruit Pie Tacos from a muffin pan

Hopefully someday soon we will see some peaches or apples from our CSA.  This sounds like a winner of a recipe.  I’m sure it will delight your family.  I have baked things like this on our gas grill to avoid heating the oven… just watch your temp and check often… your mileage may vary.

Have a great fourth CSA Friends
