Little Box Brownie: Strawberry Friands

Strawberry Friands

Time to pack a picnic and head to a park with open fields or head to the beach and curl your feet into the sand and relish in the spring sun. Grab a friend or two, perhaps a special someone and get out there and do it. Take a little treat with you, these little friands would do very nicely. I love them and their something a little bit special than just a muffin, after all their french, oh la la. So go on hop to it, get baking.
