Apple Slices filled with Apple "Cream Pie" and finished with coconut milk glaze & date puree
Kiwi squares crowned with organic sweet raspberries and a confetti of candied nut crumble & mustard flower petals.
What a beautiful dessert and so delectable, creamy and naturally sweetened with the apple and those dates! Yikes! Beautiful and can be portioned as an appetizer or on a dessert course plate, you could even stack these higher with another apple slice and another spoonful of Apple Cream Pie.
This is an easy dish and can have zillions of variations so be creative with fruits and creams, purees, and nut flavors/crunch options. You can go savory and create appetizers and entrees for any meal. Have fun running through the garden and decorating your next meal.

Top with candied nuts and edible flowers! Pow, what a beautiful dessert that I threw together in 5 minutes. You could have a list of fillings and options for puree and cream flavors, then it's just a choice of fresh fruit and nuts to finish the dish.
