Make it Small and Sweet Serving just one dessert is so 2011. This year, make the most of everyone's favorite course by offering guests an array of tiny treats. BY JESSICA ROYER OCKEN | CTW FEATURES Turkey or ham is the centerpiece of many a holiday meal, but the true main attraction comes at the end of the feast: dessert. Whether it’s pumpkin pie, Bûche de Noël, or Grandma’s famous gingersnaps, the final course is what everyone secretly (or not so secretly) saves space for. And this year, you can be sure to deliver. Having just one dessert to indulge in is a thing of the past. Sweet little cupcakes? Mini macarons? Tiny pies? No one is immune to this cuteness. “Mini desserts are just adorable,” confesses Dani Cone, the baker behind Seattle’s High 5 Pies and author of “Cutie Pies: 40 Sweet, Savory and Adorable Recipes” (Andrews McMeel, 2011). “A mini pie bite bursting with colorful fruit, rustic crust and a crumb top? What could be better?” Then there’s the flavor. Tiny treats like macarons, a delicious filled French pastry, “pack a lot of flavor in their small size,” says Ann E. McBride, co-author with Kathryn Gordon of “Les Petits Macarons: Colorful French Confections to Make at Home” (Running Press, 2011). “So while you can easily eat a couple and enjoy variety, you’ll also be satisfied with just one.” Still another bonus? “Bite-sized desserts are naturally portion-controlled,” notes Carole Bloom, author of 10 dessert cookbooks, including “Bite-Size Desserts” (Wiley, 2009). “And they’re easy to handle. There’s no need to cut or slice or decide what size piece you want.” These features combine to make small sweets perfect for holiday gatherings. “I love small things at parties, because I hate eating standing up,” says Deb Perelman, the accom-

plished cook and blogger behindsmittenkitchen.com and “The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook” (Random House, 2012). “If it takes more than one bite, it’s on your chin.” Shrink the size of your holiday desserts and offer a variety so everyone can manage a taste – or manage to taste them all. 0$.(,7'(/,&,286

When serving an assortment, you can keep to the classics and experiment, too. Our experts recommend seasonal flavors such as pumpkin and maple, perhaps with caramel or butterscotch, for Thanksgiving. For Christmas, offer spicy selections with cinnamon, ginger or mint in addition to chocolate. Perhaps a chocolate peppermint or gingerbread cake ball (a luscious truffle made of crumbled cake and frosting), suggest Robin Ankeny and Charlotte Lyon of The Cake Ball Co., based in Dallas, and authors of “Cake Balls” (Running Press, 2012), or a rich bourbon-pumpkin buttercream macaron. Fruits of the season also are great choices. “If you have a basic vanilla cake recipe or one with fruit, you can switch it up,” Perelman says. “If you use peaches in the summer, use apples or pears in the fall. I’m also a big fan of cranberries in baked goods. They have a nice flavor when you add sugar, and they go well with orange and citrus, too.” It’s also an option to choose simpler flavors, such as basic birthday cake or brownie, and add festive decorations to dress up your treats for the holiday occasion, note Ankeny and Lyon. In addition to varying flavors, con-

sider your selections to be sure you’ll offer a range of colors, textures, and styles. “Plan to have an assortment of bite-size desserts on your menu, such as tartlets, cakes, cookies, and candies,” Bloom says. 0$.(,7%($87,)8/

Almost as fun as cooking and baking mini desserts is finding fabulous

ways to display them. A cake ball or two can nestle in a serving spoon or become cake pops with the help of lollipop sticks. Cone loves to make piepops, too. Anything on a stick will look great nestled into a bouquet in a vase or glass, and Bloom suggests creative plating with dishes of different shapes, sizes, and colors, and even using pieces of slate and

granite or baskets. Setting small items in mini-cupcake papers will make them pretty and easy to pick up, adds Perelman. Macarons, with their varied colors and neat, round shape, can be displayed countless ways. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love displaying pastel macarons on antique tiered cake or cookie platters,â&#x20AC;? McBride says. Line them up in multicolored rows like gems or stack them in a pyramid, she suggests. Or, make a delicious edible centerpiece for your sweets table by pinning macarons to a foam shape (or attaching them with a bit of frosting), such as a tree or large ball. Desserts this delightful may not wait until the end of the meal to make their debut. A mini pie could greet each guest at their assigned seat, perhaps even wrapped to take home as a party favor, says Cone, adding: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Have fun with this! There are so many ways to display these treats, and they look great piled high â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a true pie bounty!â&#x20AC;? 0$.(,70$1$*($%/(

Now, in all honesty, is making a batch of petit-four-sized pies more labor intensive than a standard nine-incher or two? Probably. But creating tiny treats doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to mean chaining yourself to the stove for days at a time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It just requires planning, and maybe a good piping bag,â&#x20AC;? Perelman says. Consider these tips to streamline your process: Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t abandon your favorite recipes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In many cases home cooks can make their full-size recipes into bite-size desserts,â&#x20AC;? Bloom says. Just practice a few times so you can figure out the yield and the adjusted cooking time. Cookies are a particularly easy item to make smaller, Perelman says. Bar cookies are easiest of

all. Something like her cranberry crumb bars can be cut in oneinch squares for one-bite delight. (Cool the pan to almost-frozen for cutting ease.) Bite-sized cheesecakes can be tricky, Bloom says. Choose a silicone mini-muffin pan to help them come out easily. Macarons are not nearly as difficult as they look, but to avoid frustration, McBride suggests practicing making the shells a few times before the big event. Her book contains an extensive troubleshooting section, complete with photos and step-bystep instructions for macaron perfection. Bake in advance. Make a few flavors of mini cupcakes over a period of weeks, Perelman suggests. Wrap them airtight and store in the freezer until the holiday arrives. Then just thaw, add frosting, and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re ready to go. Your guests will be amazed at the bounty of decadence, and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be a hero, because after all, everyone loves a choice! Â&#x2039;&7:)HDWXUHV
