GIVEAWAY ENDED
PETITE SWEETS
Bite-Size Desserts to Satisfy Every Sweet Tooth
BY BEATRICE OJAKANGAS

ABOUT THE COOKBOOK:
A shot glass of velvety chocolate mousse. Itty-bitty key lime pie. Two-bite whoopie pies. Mini-desserts are one of the hottest food trends around, according to the National Restaurant Association. In Petite Sweets, renowned cookbook author and James Beard 2009 Cookbook Award Nominee Beatrice Ojakangas serves up more than 50 recipes for bite-size desserts that will satisfy every sweet tooth.
 
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
James Beard Cookbook Hall of Fame author Beatrice Ojakangas has written twenty-seven cookbooks (including Petite Sweets: Bite-Size Desserts to Satisfy Every Sweet Tooth) as well as numerous articles for many of the nation's leading magazines, including Bon Appetit, Gourmet, Woman's Day, Family Circle, and Cooking Light. She starred in a five-part series on holiday baking on the TV Food Network called "The Baker's Dozen," was a featured guest on Julia Child's series "Baking with Julia," and has appeared on Martha Stewart Living Television.

RECIPE SAMPLE:
MINE CREME BRULEE
Very easy to put together. My first batch I cooked in tiny demitasse cups, filling them by half. Then, after calling around I found 2-ounce little metal cups from a restaurant supply that cost only 49 cents each and they worked well, too. This is an easy recipe to put together. I used a dozen of them for one batch. A regular blow torch is handy for melting the sugar on top.
 

Makes 12 1-1/2 to 2-ounce desserts
INGREDIENTS:
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 5 large egg yolks
  • 1/2 cup sugar, preferably super fine or baker’s sugar
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • about 1/2 cup light brown sugar
DIRECTIONS:
Preheat the oven to 275 degrees. Whisk the cream and egg yolks together until perfectly blended. Put through a fine strainer to remove little lumps from the egg yolks. Mix in the sugar and vanilla. Pour into 12 two-ounce cups and place in a large baking pan. Pour about 1 inch of boiling water into the baking pan. Bake for 35 to 55 minutes, then check for doneness by inserting a knife into the center of one and if it comes out clean, they’re done. Be careful not to overcook or, like a custard, the crèmes will separate.

Remove from the baking pan and set on a counter to cool. Chill at least 3 hours before serving.

Before serving, spread a thin layer of brown sugar on top of each to cover completely. 

Now, with a blow torch, melt the layer of brown sugar. The point is that you need to caramelize the sugar that will melt and then harden. Theoretically, you can do this under the broiler, but I have more luck with a blow torch

On the website are many recipes. I find it odd that the cake mix was invented when it was decided that to bake a cake from scratch was too time consuming and difficult.

This is perfect! I am always trying to find new and delicious treats to make for my coworkers for Christmas time as well as for my friends and family all the time! I have exhausted the typical treats (cookies, brownies, peanut butter balls, etc.) and would love something new to try. Thanks for the giveaway!

I learned from the author's website that, before she made it, there was not a go-to Finnish cookbook! How cool is that, to be the first to do something (it seems that nowadays just about everything has already been done)!
