Five Mini Desserts for a Sweet Little Treat


No Comments

I have yet to master the art of keeping fresh produce in a household of one. Thankfully, there is always baking to the rescue. One particular afternoon, a bowl of shiny, red apples stared at me from the kitchen table, begging to be eaten before they were too far gone. I happened to have enough pie crust dough (thawing in the fridge) for something … even if it was something small.

I was able to bake three (two for me, and one for a close friend) apple galettes, shaped like mini envelopes with cinnamon-dusted fruit bursting from the inside. They may have been tiny, but the taste was mighty. Just one or two bites can show someone, including yourself, a little love and care.

Sometimes, mini is the best size when it comes to desserts. One tiny serving can make the most of a special ingredient, encourage a moment just for you, and create a little food gift love. Here are five recipes to get you on your mini way.
