SHF: I'm a Little Late with the Little Bites!.
The very lovely Jeanne is hosting this month's SHF, and made an already fabulous event even more-so when she called for our sweets to be in small bites. If you know me, it's obvious how much I like bite-sized foods!
I've had a rather rotten week, though, so all my tiny dessert plans went crashing to the kitchen floor. Recipes were cut, and in the end, another just wasn't ready in time.
In fact, I'm late as I post this!
But I promised Jeanne I'd be here, so here you go.
Both above and immediately below, Thimble Cookies Re-Thunk; from Gale Gand, a light and crunch butter cookie which is supposed to be cut into rounds the size of a thimble. Using a thimble.
I haven't any thimbles, though, not being much of a sewer. Lids to tiny bottles didn't work, either.
So, I inaugurated a set of very cute, very tiny, Halloween cutters, instead.
I felt a bit like I was starring in a Lucky Charms commercial as I set them up: blue cats, yellow ghosts, silver moons, green headstones, red pumpkins, and purple bats.
Mint and chocolate. A favorite of Matt's. In it's simplest form. Chocolate Tiddlywinks; whole mint leaves covered in chocolate, and pressed into something more-or-less resembling a circle.
Much less sharp mint than you usually get out of a chocolate-mint treat, and the whole thing verges on the savory.
It's my hope to add to this post later this weekend; I have another dough in the refrigerator that I simply hadn't time to get to, as well as the pan still setting. If things go well, I can include a few more little bites soon.
