5.0 out of 5 stars Mini Treats & Hand-Held Sweets 100 Delicious Desserts to Pick Up and Eat, October 14, 2012
This review is from: Mini Treats & Hand-Held Sweets: 100 Delicious Desserts to Pick Up and Eat (Paperback)
My daughter and I have been making Abby Dodge's marvelous recipes together since January, participating in a monthly baking group called #Baketogether. We've baked bread, cheesecake, savory cheese sables, angel food cakes, fruit pies and tarts, and more. Abby's recipes are clearly-written, easy-to-follow and fool-proof -- they always work beautifully. With every recipe, she shares techniques that can be applied to other baking projects; we learn every time we bake. Most importantly, Abby's recipes are wonderfully flavorful. Many of her recipes have become family and friend favorites.

It was with great excitement that my daughter -- who has learned to bake following Abby's recipes -- and I cracked the spine of Mini Treats & Hand-Held Sweets and began trying recipes. Her Mini Spiced Sour Cream Coffeecakes combine an irresistible sweet streusel topping with a soft cake that is buttery, sweet and gently spiced. They are easy to make, and as impressive for a brunch as they are for dessert after a casual dinner.

Destined to become a family favorite are Chunky, Chewy Brownie Drops. Intense, dark chocolate flavor fills this cookie from two sources: cocoa mixed into the batter and bittersweet chocolate chunks which are folded in before baking. The texture really does bring to mind a chewy brownie with the much-appreciated addition of slightly crunchy edges, too. This is a sophisticated cookie, but also very easy to do for a last-minute dessert.

My daughter and I already have picked several more recipes to try over the next few weekends, and I'm sure a dessert or two or three from Mini Treats & Hand-Held Sweets will grace our Thanksgiving table next month.
