Carrott Cake and Apple Pie Bites

The picture also shows little tarts made with our Apple Pie Jam. I topped it with whipped cream which did not hold up well at all. Maybe if you made your own whipped cream, or used cool whip, the end result might be prettier. They were still tasty!

I also had someone share with me that they used the Carrott Cake Jam on top of a cheesecake and that was very well recieved. The possibilities are endless! 🙂
