KISS PIES!!! SSSSOOOO SIMPLE, BUT SSSOOOOO DELICIOUS!!

I’ve got such a fun little pie to share with you today that really couldn’t get any easier.  I am talking 2 main ingredients people.

You’ll cut a 2 1/2- 3 inch circle for each kiss.  Does NOT have to be perfect.  A few of mine were different sizes and they were all great. You’ll brush a light egg wash over each little pie…. ….and sprinkle with sugar.  Try not to dump it on like it shows on my picture    Trying to do
