Surprise Baby Shower for Lauren!

September 22, 2014

Pumpkin Pie Minis 3 | Espresso and Cream
My good friend, Lauren, has been mentioned a number of times on this blog. She is one of my oldest blog friends, and we followed each other’s blogs for years, practically since the beginning when I’m sure neither of us had any clue what we were doing. Lauren has gone from corporate finance guru to small bakery owner to her most exciting new role: momma-to-be! I’m so excited for Lauren and her hubby and can’t wait for them to welcome their little boy soon.

A couple of Lauren’s friends are hosting a surprise virtual baby shower for Lauren today. And, to keep things true to Lauren’s love of sweets and all things mini, we all created desserts that are miniature in nature.

Unfortunately, my attempts at miniature crust-less mini pumpkin pies with struesel topping were an utter failure. Well, I guess I can’t say they were a total failure since Joe still devoured them and said they were pretty tasty, but they’re certainly not worth sharing on E&C, at least not yet. However, I absolutely couldn’t miss out on the shower and getting a chance to celebrate Lauren, recipe or no recipe! Here are a few other pumpkin pie recipes on E&C I would suggest you check out:
