Miniature Desserts for Entertaining
Miniature desserts can be just the thing to turn a regular recipe into a recipe that will wow your guests when you entertain. After all, a plain muffin may be something you eat regularly, but just imagine serving your guests miniature Banana Blueberry Muffins with coffee when they stop by.
You can buy the cookbook here.
Or how about tiny Blackberry Lime Meringue Pies? I know my guests would certainly be impressed with miniature desserts. Creating miniature desserts also means that you can sample several without overindulging.
Having miniature desserts means that it is perfectly OK to sample an Espresso Brownie and a Jelly Donut. I can’t wait to try a few more of these petit treats recipes.
Petit Treats cookbook review
Petite Treats: Mini Versions of Your Favorite Baked Delights by Christy Beaver and Morgan Greenseth is a collection of recipes for perfectly sized handheld treats.
The recipes for this miniature desserts cookbook are broken down into sections for Morning Bites, Sweet Snacks, Classic Bites, Fancy Stuff; and Frostings, Fillings, Toppings, and Drizzles. Each of the recipes includes a detailed ingredients list and easy to follow instructions.
I appreciate that the recipes include information on how best to store the miniature desserts and how long they can be stored. Most of the time, when I entertain, I like to make the treats ahead of time and then have them ready when I need them.
What’s included in this cookbook?
The selection of miniature desserts recipes is really fantastic. You have some decadent sweets that will appeal to those with a definite sweet tooth like the Fauxstess Cupcakes.
You also have treats that are a bit more on the healthy side like the Blueberry Lavender Cookies. There are also quite a few miniature dessert recipes that are vegan. That is a nice treat to find in a non-vegan dessert cookbook. There is also a conversions chart at the back of the cookbook.
Scattered throughout the cookbook, are sweet tips with suggestions about making the recipes easier, making them vegan, or substitutions for different foods. There are also a number of photographs of the finished miniature desserts as well.
If you’re looking for a mini desserts cookbook that offers easy to follow recipes for mini versions of your favorite desserts, Petite Treats is definitely the cookbook you need. I tried the Banana Blueberry Muffins recipe and it was amazing!
