We’re ‘throwing out the first pitch’ in our Daily Tailgate Recipes with these sweet little things we served for dessert at Tuesday Lunch. They were such a hit that we decided we’re going to make them again Saturday morning to sell in our Kitchen Shop. So, stop by for a fresh one, or pick up a dozen for your team at home!
