About the Author

Morgan Greenseth has been involved with the many aspects of food throughout her life. Growing up in the Midwest, as a young girl she learned to bake with her mother and grandmother. She now designs the interiors of restaurants and cafes, and also helps fill their pastry case with treats. When not brightening up interiors, she's veganizing her favorite desserts and competing in baking competitions. She has written about food and the environment for and has served a panelist for the Fearless Critic Seattle Restaurant Guide book. Having relocated from Seattle, Washington, to New York City, Morgan now manages CHAMPS diner and bakery. Christy Beaver began helping her mother and grandmother in the kitchen as soon as she could walk, from which she developed a lifelong love for pie. After moving to the Pacific Northwest, she noticed a lack of wholesome home-baked goods, which inspired her to start Mini Empire Bakery, for which she now heads up Seattle operations. Her goals are to enable everyone to enjoy small portions of their favorite treats and help Mini Empire take over the world, one tiny dessert at t time. She lives in Seattle, Washington with her devoted dachshund, Andy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Treat yourself 11 Dec. 2012
By Michelle Webster - Published on
Naughty treats like Whisky Maple Bacon Mini Cupcakes to nice treats like vegan sprinkled donuts. I've had some fun already with these recipes this holiday.
-Great pictures throughout the book with clever sweet tips and comments.
-Do resist the urge to make these treats if you do not have the right sized pan. Pan size does matter, at least in the two brownie recipes I tried that called for the mini muffin pan.
All & all unique flavors that later became addictive to me. Easily some repeat holiday recipes for our family.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Indulgent Recipes! 25 Jan. 2013
By jt - Published on
The recipes in this book are delicious! We have tried many of them and everyone has turned out great! Some of these recipes have even become our new family favorites. Our very favorite is probably the frosted apple spice muffins (p 15); we frost them if we want them to be more like a cupcake/dessert and we leave them plain if we want them as a snack or with our breakfast - they are so good that you don't even have to frost them if you don't feel like it. However we always double or triple the recipes because we always give some away. However it is nice that the treats are small (hence the name Petite Treats) so I don't eat too many!

I like that the recipes are simple and easy to follow. The book is only 6 inches by 6 inches and almost every recipe only takes up 1-2 pages. There are a few ingredients that I don't have stocked in my kitchen (like whiskey, green tea, expresso powder, and lavender) but for the most part I have all the ingredients already on hand. Some of the recipes include "sweet tips" and these are really helpful. Most of the recipes are made quickly and easily. I also like that there are some pictures of the finished product. I hate it when recipe books don't have pictures! Also I like that I have been able to substitute some ingredients for more "healthy" ingredients such as substituting all or part of the sugar for honey, all or part of the white flour for whole wheat, etc). There is even a vegan donut recipe!

The book is divided into chapters including: Morning Bites, Sweet Snacks, Classic Bites, Fancy Stuff and Frosting Fillings Toppings and Drizzles. Some of our favorites out of each category are (Morning Bites) Frosted Apple Spice Muffins, Morning Glory Muffins, and Cranberry and Orange Rolls; (Sweet Snacks) Mrs. Randall's Brownies, Boston Cream Yippie Pies, and Glazed Chocolate Donuts; (Classic Bites) Apple Pie Cookies, Angel Food Cake with Vanilla strawberries, and Cookies `n' Cream Cake (Fancy Stuff) The Strawberry Cream Éclairs are amazing!! (Frostings, Fillings, Toppings, and Drizzles) We've made all of these and they are all wonderful!

The only thing I think needs improved is that the pages are falling out of my book. It doesn't seem like they are bound together very well (but maybe I just got a bad one). However, I would still recommend this book even with that flaw.

Overall this is an excellent cookbook and we have really enjoyed making and eating the recipes.

I received this book in exchange for my opinions to facilitate my review. This did not affect my opinions. All opinions are my own (and my family's).

5.0 out of 5 stars For Classicly Trained or Home Bakers 17 Jan. 2013
By KK - Published on
I love this book. I'm a classicly trained Pastry cook and appreciate what Morgan and Christy do. Their ingredients are healthier than most and flavor combinations are amazing. Even though these treats are small, they certainly are indulgent. If a baking term or ingredient isn't very common, they explain it in a side note and tell you where to find it. This book covers a wide array of treats essentially for any dessert mood you're in. Most have a simple preparation that can be whipped up in minutes. There are also a few recipes that are a little more in depth for when you want to bake something challenging, pretty, and delicious. Some recipes are vegetarian or vegan as well. Why not make dessert healthier if it tastes the same or better? They give options to play around with. The recipes include cookies, yeast dough for cinnamon rolls, brownies, mini cakes, mini pies, tarts, and donuts. You can also find the occasional quip which makes this book even more fun to read. I had the pleasure of eating some of their baked product from Mini Empire Bakery a few years ago and have never forgotten it. I'm excited that they published a book of recipes, all of which I would love to try. Petite Treats spices things up and is great for any skill level. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves to bake and cares about flavor and quality.
5.0 out of 5 stars Delicious little bite sized treats! 14 Feb. 2013
By Diane Hoffmaster - Published on
Some days, you just need a tiny bite of something sweet after a big dinner. Or, you sit down to a hot cup of coffee and just want to nibble on something that won't totally destroy your diet. Well, Petite treats is the answer to your dessert needs! This is a fairly small cookbook but it is filled with tons of different sorts of treats, all in miniature! The author has taken a ton of your favorite desserts like donuts, pies, brownies, cakes and more and shrunk them down into bite sized nibbles. The recipes are clear and easy to follow with a sweet little cooking `tip' on many of the pages. These tips range from how to make a frosting vegan without completely destroying the flavor to using shot glasses as mini cookie cutters. There are several very attractive pictures scattered throughout the book as well. The author divides the recipes into chapters based on the types of treats and even includes a `fancy' treat section that has things like cannolis and mini eclairs. I made the Frosted Apple Spice muffins and can honestly say that they were delicious and very easy to make! The last chapter of the cookbook is all about the frosting streusels, and glazes that are used to decorate these yummy little treats. I am looking forward to trying more of these recipes and am thrilled to have found some `mini' versions of my favorite treats so I can feel a tad bit less guilty when I sit down to indulge my sweet tooth!

5.0 out of 5 stars Cute takes on the classics! 3 Nov. 2014
By Especially Happy - Published on
Petite Treats is filled with lots of delicious mini treats of all kinds: cakes, muffins, scookies, tarts, donuts and more. The recipes seem to be basically the same as for the standard size desserts, but they are made in smaller sizes, which not only make them cuter, but also help with portion control. It has a lot of classic favorites, like morning glory muffins and glazed chocolate donuts, but there are also a lot of new ideas, including cookies and cream cake and sugar and gluten free brownies. I even got a kick out of some of the names, like the cherry pie filled chocolate Piecakens and the Fauxstess Cupcakes (adorable mini versions of the ones you can buy at the supermarket). Since it’s Autumn, I tried out the Pumpkin Spice Scookies with Fall Spice Glaze. As a cross between a cookie and scone, the scookies I made turned out a little flatter than typical scones, but the pumpkin spice flavor was amazing! I’m happy to get the chance to try some of their best bakery recipes at home.
