Christina Lane is back, with more favorite sweet treats—scaled down for two!

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. Among the mouthwatering selections, you’ll find:

  • Gooey Butter Cake Cookies

  • Three-ingredient Flourless Chocolate Cake

  • Salted Butterscotch Tart

  • Peppermint Brownies

  • Greek Yogurt Cheesecake Ramekins

  • Baked Rice Pudding with Caramel

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!
