caramel pumpkin pie

Bringing desserts to work is awesome. It gives me a chance to bake without wondering what in the world we’re going to do with all this stuff, people come by and say thanks, and I become known as “the girl who brings treats” instead of “the girl whose desk faces the men’s bathroom.”

The disadvantage is that sometimes I only eat just enough of what I bake for quality control. And by quality control, I mean, is this edible? And not, can I taste the caramel in this?

I didn’t detect the caramel in the few bites I had, and neither did the coworkers I accosted in the hallway when they were trying to enjoy their tartlets (pie-lets?) in peace. But we all agreed that it was good, and that’s all that matters.

Janell, who chose this for Tuesdays with Dorie, has the recipe posted.

  1. Hahaha that’s like what I do at school! I enjoy pawning off baked goods to my classmates at lunchtime. It’s awesome 😀

  2. cute pie-lets! yes, coworkers are always appreciative of home baked treats!

  3. I love bringing treats to work. It gets them out of my house and scores brownie points with my managers, win/win!

    P.S. How cute are those little tart pans?!

  4. these are so cute! I am all about bringing treats to work, but usually I let my hubs bring them…boosts his popularity 😉

  5. I also like being known as the girl who brings in treats. And of course, I do some quality control as well!

  6. If I didn’t take my treats to work, hubby and I would gain way too much weight! Those little pie-lets are cute. 🙂

  7. Oh my goodness, look at all of your mini tart/pie pans! That’s an impressive collection you’ve got there 🙂 Glad the coworkers enjoyed them.

  8. Glad the co workers liked the pie-lets! 🙂 And that you are the girl oho brings treats rather than your other description! 😉

  9. Great idea to make them super mini. I have a few pans (?) like that, I should use them too!
