From mini cupcakes to Starbucks’ Petites, the pendulum is swinging from super-size to mini-size, and I don’t know who to thank first. I tripped over Mini Pies by Abigail Johnson Dodge at Williams-Sonoma, and I think they’re on to something. Featured are forty classic recipes of sweet and savory mini pies using an electric mini pie maker. Hearty meals and desserts are at your fingertips with fillings from cranberry-pear to S’mores to salmon-and-dill.
Multiple servings are prepared at once making it an instant time saver. Not only are individual courses a great way to measure portion control but I can’t think of a more personal way to treat family and guests than to serve them their very own pie. To try the Almond Frangipane Pie recipe, go to TISLstyle's Facebook, and find it in the Notes section (if you're not a fan yet, click "Like!"). The cookbook is available at Williams-Sonoma.
