How does she do it? Christina Lane, everyone’s favorite for two cookbook author has once again taken her favorite desserts and scaled them down to size. Here are nearly 100 delicious new recipes drawn from her personal favorites, complete with her signature gorgeous photography. Perfect for new couples, empty-nesters, and anyone who’s ever polished off far too much of a regular-size dessert, these cakes, cookies, pies, bars, and more are sure to please. Lane uses pans in creative ways (a loaf pan, for example, is perfect for making two big brownies; muffin tins make great mini pies), but also takes advantage of smaller pans that are now widely available. Her familiar, friendly voice invites readers to whip up a little dessert and enjoy. She’s even included some light and skinny options for her fans. Sweet & Simple is sure to be another instant classic!

I love this idea. I quit baking because there is always too much left over which we do not need.
The cheesecake in a loaf pan is perfect. I also would love to try the chocolate cherry coconut bars.

Pecan Pie Bars are another definite recipe, I want to try.

Lane also does a Black Forest Cake in a six inch pan that looks delicious.

Cute ideas for a special sweet treat!

As the other reviewer said, a book worth considering to purchase!

So, so many great recipes in this book! The ones I got to try were so good. If you are looking for recipes that make small amounts of product so you are NOT tempted to over do the sweets, then this is the book for you! I found it to be so great that I went out and bought a copy!
