Petite Treats By Christy Beaver and Morgan Greenseth

On cuteness scale from one to ten this book and the recipes get a 12! Cute! Cute! Cute! But it doesn’t stop there. This cookbook is a treasure trove of yummy Lilliputian recipes. Their size makes them even more of a delight. Everyone wants to cut back on eating sweets but face it, the craving is still there. When we go to have a “serving” it is more than we need plus we usually have the tendency to super-size it or go back for seconds. With these mini desserts you can go back for thirds and be okay! They are just enough to satisfy hankering for something luscious.
Recipes include muffins, cakes, yeast rolls, yippe pies instead of whoopee pies, cupcakes, brownies, pies, donuts, and some extra special ones in the “Fancy Stuff” chapter that will surprise you. There is also a section with frosting, fillings, toppings and drizzles for your masterpieces!
Muffins are made in mini muffin pans of course but the instructions to use a one inch cookie scoop made me chuckle. A recipe of 2o or 24 servings is all baked in a 9 inch pan. Cakes are baked in mini Bundt pans. You get the idea of the scale.
Even more than the tininess of the recipes, I was impressed with how good they were! The variety is amazing!
My mind ran with idea in ways to enjoy this book. You could make several different recipes for a ladies meeting and every one get a plate full of the small goodies. I know they would delight children, and what about a little girl’s tea party. I can also see making a variety of recipes and give in a special box as a gift for Christmas, birthday or any special occasion!
I received this book from Ulysses Press in exchange for an honest review. The opinions I have stated are my own.
