Strawberry Peach Mini Galette Recipe

Yes, I must admit that back to school means a little bit of mom-petition on my part. I love challenging myself to creative lunch and snack time ideas when it comes to the children’s lunches. Seems I always make tradtitional mini apple pies for their snacks, but this year I decided to make something a little more colourful and a lot more fun to look at.

I personally love this dessert because…
