Dessert For Two: Mini Cherry Crisp |

If you’re craving some making and baking in the kitchen these days, but you’re not interested in having never-ending sweets on hand, may I suggest you check out my Dessert For Two series?

There are 15 recipes, and each one is designed for just two portions. Which might be the perfect thing if you’re sheltering at home with one other person, or you can’t sleep at night and you’re bored, or you need a sugar hit but don’t want lots of leftovers.

Here are five of the most popular, or you can check out the whole series.

Panna Cotta. You can serve it which peaches as pictured, or whatever fruit you like — or you can serve it without any topping at all. (I adore panna cotta and always order it at restaurants if it’s on the menu.)
