Leftover dessert doubles as guest favors when packaged in boxes that are as pretty as, well, pie. Photocopy template at 400 percent; trace onto card stock. Cut out the image with scallop scissors along scalloped edges and regular scissors on solid lines. With a straightedge and a bone folder, score paper along dotted lines. Fold along scored lines, and secure tabs with double-sided tape. Line box with parchment paper, place a slice inside, and tie on a tag.

Prettily arranged ingredients, add flavor, and turn simple foods into edible works of art. We topped flatbread with sage leaves, sliced onion, tomatillo, and yellow tomato. (Another option is to use only an assortment of herbs.) One batch of dough yields 12 delicate slices, enough to present in a basket at the table. Save time the day of your party by making the bread a couple of days in advance and storing it in an airtight container.
