An appetizer classic, and the perfect way to fuel up for an Easter Egg Hunt.  In its simplest form, or dressed up in any number of flavor combinations, the deviled egg is so popular in America that special platters and carriers are sold to accommodate their unique shape.

Maids of Honor Tarts
According to British cooking maven Delia Smith, the dainty Maids of Honor tarts are rumored to have originated at Richmond Palace in the 16th century. The tart fillings have changed over the years—ours are made with jam and a simple almond paste topping—but the appeal of these bite-size treats hasn’t changed at all.
