Q: I was wondering if you had any tasty baked goods recipes for two.
I want to make something special to share with my partner for Valentine's Day, but since it's just the two of us the notion of a whole batch of cupcakes or an entire cake just isn't very practical.
Any ideas? Thanks!

Editor: Claudia, sure! The first thing that comes to mind for a good dessert for two is this weeknight layer cake:
• Recipe: Weeknight Layer Cake Built for Two - A full cake, but sized for just two people!
Also check out some of the individually-sized desserts in this post:

I know that you said you were looking for baked goods, but after a heavy, rich holiday meal like the one we usually have at Valentine's, I especially like these little layered cups of pudding and stewed fruit, which could be easily adapted to a winter menu:
• Recipe: Spiced Cream and Plum Verrines (pictured above)
One other approach would be to make a full batch of cookie dough, but save half in the freezer for later.

Readers, any good ideas for Claudia?
