Dessert For Two: Small Batch Cookies, Brownies, Pies, and Cakes (2015) Christina Lane

dessert-for-twoLet me gush, for just a moment: I love this book.

I love to bake, but I don’t love having more sweets than Michael and I should (or even can!) eat. But in baking, unlike cooking, you can’t just halve or quarter a recipe, because leavening doesn’t work like that. Here’s she’s done all the work, so I can make a small batch of something sweet without having to worry about Michael eating too many cookies (or whatever).

It also serves as a jumping off point for making desserts I love in smaller batches. But for the most part, these days if I want something sweet I reach here first.

The cobbler recipes are what I’ve made most frequently, because when I have fresh fruit from the farmers’ market, I want something Right Now but that I’m not going to be eating forever.

I’ll note that for me, these desserts are almost all more than two servings–I tend to like small amounts of sweet at one time, so even between the two of us the skillet brownie was entirely took much, even if it was super delicious.

Plus, there’s her blog, Dessert for Two, if you want to sample.
