When you invite guests over to your apartment in Houston, you might find that the occasion demands the best bite-sized desserts you can muster. Thankfully, the process of making and serving these tiny, sweet treats will take you no time flat. Here are three must-have desserts for all your gatherings at home.
Nothing is simpler, yet more decadent, than a crisp and bright peach cobbler. Make it bite-sized by using mini ramekins to hold the peaches and batter together. Instead of slicing the peaches, consider cubing them to better fit in the ramekins. Remember to generously butter the tiny pans before you add the batter and pour the peaches over top. Cook at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for about 20 minutes or until the peaches are bubbly and crust is golden brown.
With the tiniest of springform pans, you can create bite-sized blueberry cheesecake whenever you please. When making the mini form of this dessert, make sure to only press your crust ¼ of the way up the side of pan to keep it from burning. Do not bother to proof your crust either as it will cook with the cheesecake at 325 degrees Fahrenheit for 15 minutes. The blueberry topping adds a hint of freshness, especially if you brighten it with some lemon juice.
Raspberry Beignets at Your Apartment in Houston
You can take your favorite beignet recipe and downsize it to create delightfully delicious treats for the guests at your Houston apartment. You will need to cut the dough into two-inch squares before frying to keep them bite-sized. Only fry them until they are golden brown, and then immediately toss in powdered sugar to coat. These tiny, powdered-sugar-covered donuts pair beautifully with a light raspberry sauce. Cook down your raspberries with lime juice, sugar and a pinch of salt for a dynamic flavor combination.
