  1. Never saw a question to answer… but, how about “Flan”, jumbo individual Flans.

    Winter baking is a warm and cozy family pleasure.

  2. I would gladly attempt to “answer the question”, if I could find a question anywhere…. I love Averie Cooks recipes…. never tried one I didn’t like. But, unfortunately, the website, here, has become so “complex” and overloaded with ads and “scripts” or something that it won’t respond, it stalls, errors, closes, freezes.. nothing but problems on here anymore. Too bad, I’ll miss it…. I just can’t maneuver it anymore.

  3. I found your site quite by chance, really!! You make cooking and baking look so easy that I’m looking forward to trying your goodies. Well, not all at once but, every weekend we love trying a new recipe. This time we’ll pick one of yours!!

    1. oops! I forgot to comment on which color would go best in my Apples Themed kitchen…. GREEN or RED. All the colors are so eye popping pretty!

  4. I would do a “Julie Julia ” like the movie and make every recipe in order as you have them listed. I am intrigued by the Pumpkin Toast (love all things pumpkin).and of corse a classic Mac and Cheese is always great.
    I love the colors ! Little,versatile and I would love as an addition to our kitchen.
    Thank you
    Laura

  5. I would love to win these! They were on our wedding registry but we never got them. All of these recipes look delish!

  6. I would love to use these sweet little pots for all kinds of things but I think the first time I use them I will make individual little pies for my dad and my husband.

  7. 2 is the perfect number to serve me and my husband homemade soup, chili, pasta…the list could go on and on. I love the indigo blue. :)

  8. I’d like to try that double-cheese and red pepper dip (though I’d probably make it extra hot!)

  9. Everything looks so good, but I definitely want to try a hot dip recipe. Or chili to go on cornbread or baked potatoes in the fall. Such cheery colors too!

  10. I would love to use them to make individual pot pies for myself and my hubby as well as other meals just cause they are so stinkin’ cute!

  11. I would make a dip of some sort in it. I just think it would be really cute sitting on my stove!!!! Thank You for the opportunity!!!

  12. I would probably make a dip of some sort but I would love to learn how to make a custard…really the possibilities are endless!

  13. I’d use these mini pots for mini desserts, heating up soup, mini casseroles, and anything else I can think of!

  14. Thanks for offering this great give away! I think I would bake the cookie recipes in these as soon as I got them.

  15. There are so many great things you can make with these,! Like bread puddings, individual casserole dishes, eggs wrapped in bacon and the list goes on. Hope everyone has a blessed day!

  16. These dishes all sound amazing… as does all the stuff you post… I’m a newer follower but have already tried some of your recipes… YUM!!!

  17. So cute. I’d make individual meatloaves for my family & individual servings of mac & cheese or desserts for my daughter & her friends.

  18. The first things that I would make would be individual chicken pot pies and mac n cheese with different added in items. I would love these little cocottes.

  19. The dish I would make is the “Pumpkin Cinnamon Overnight Pull-Apart French Toast with Vanilla Maple Butter.” Since I am single, this would be great as I could use them to make dishes that are easy to prepare and for one person

  20. WOW these are absolutely adorable!!!!! Love the different colors and the fact they have so many uses!!!!

  21. I would love to make any of your delicious recipe ideas in these, but I think I would probably first go with some spinach and artichoke dip!

  22. This is an awesome giveaway!! There are endless recipes I would use these for :) they would be perfect for small dinner parties!

  23. I’m not sure if my previous comment made it, but I love making microwave oatmeal& even overnight oats. I’d love to start trying some baked oats recipes & yummy soups during the winter

  24. We are hosting Thanksgiving at our house this year. These would be great to use to make side dishes in or appetizers.

  25. Being in college it’s hard to find pans that are sturdy but not extremely expensive– especially since my roommates and I will be using them primarily to cooke mac and cheese for our Thursday night Greys Anatomy/Scandal viewings! These would be perfect to up our kitchen game and get cooking!

  26. I don’t know what is harder to do…pick a color (I love them all) or a recipe (I want to try/make all of them). If I had to pick one – I’d pick the Spinach and Artichoke Dip – it’s my favorite dip! BUT since it’s for a PAIR of Le Creuset Mini Cocottes – I’d also make the Double Melted Cheese and Red Pepper Dip (sounds delish).

  27. I will make my husband traditional South African custard since that is one of his favorite dishes from back home.

  28. I would love to make a vegan mac and cheese for the upcoming holidays! I love the pretty colors too, they can double as presentation dishes!

  29. I have always wondered about these Cocottes. They seem to be an elegant way to do single serve soups for a party. The colors are great and they gorgeous but, what I would really like is when they are seasoned. Something tells me these will look even better when they have the “used” look, some scratches maybe, a few burn marks that you cant scrub off, when they have some stories to tell. The memories of fall soups on game day, cheesy apps from book clubs and there is something about that dark blue one that screams for roasted onions and apples!

  30. These make me so happy! I would use one to make an egg bake for dinner, and the other to make a crisp for dessert!

  31. I would love to try some wonderful onion soup in one with a piece of French bread and wonderful cheese…bubbling and googy…..so good.

  32. I would love to make the spinach and artichoke recipe you posted – looks delicious!! Although I can think of so many things to bake with these!

  33. After more than 32 years of marriage and two teenagers, my dish collection is a little thin. I was just wishing yesterday for some more small casserole dishes. I am making a family size Pumpkin Cinnamon French toast from your recipe now (for tomorrow) but i think the mini coquettes would be perfect for personal apple crumble for my apple fans.

  34. I’d definitely make the ” Pumpkin Cinnamon Overnight Pull-Apart French Toast with Vanilla Maple Butter”. I love French Toast and this looks awesome! :D

  35. OHMIGOSH I have always wanted adorable little pots like these to make dips in!! Specifically a cheesy, spinach and artichoke dip.

    Or I might make a seafood mac and cheese YUM.

  36. I think these would be great for making baked beans, great size for just my husband and myself!

    demureprincess7(at)gmail(dot)com

  37. Pretty enough to leave on the counter. I’d have much fun cooking with these classy, functional and pretty pots.

  38. I’ve never had one of these pots but I imagine they would be perfect for baked apples stuffed with nutty granola!! Thanks so much for the giveaway

  39. These cocottes are so adorable! I love the orange/red ones. Who would’ve ever thought of cooking non-main meal dishes in it?
    – Laura S

  40. I would love to win these! I’m a new grad student so I am severely lacking in nice dishware. Keeping my fingers crossed!!

  41. i would use them to make dips! We’re big football fans so the cocottes would be perfect! Also, perfect for some soups!!

  42. I would make all types of casseroles, pastas, mac n’ cheese would be fantastic to make in their own little croquettes. :)

    1. I would love to make our favorite soup, white chicken chili! Perfect for fall and perfect for these to die for dishes! So excited! Thank you! xoxo

  43. The first thing that comes in mind to what to make with them, i would really make some delicious creamy flan!:D

  44. Definitely see myself making the “Pumpkin Cinnamon Overnight Pull-Apart French Toast with Vanilla Maple Butter” VERY soon! Pumpkin-y, gooey, cinnamon-y goodness! :)

  45. My husband and I do not always like the same things so I’d use them to make separate veggies for one..like backed broccoli or cheesy cauliflower. Great for servings of French Onion soup too. I make a serving size of baked stuffed shrimp using precooked shrimp topping it with crushed Club crackers mixed with melted butter, fine chopped onion and sometimes a dash of wine to moisten it. Precooked shrimp cuts down on cooking time so it only is in there a short time , LOL he hates shrimp..his loss. Ah yes and mini desserts apple pie..I’d fry my apples in butter with cinnamon and sugar first then top with a piece of crust cook till crust is done. On and on these are so cute with plenty of uses. Can you tell I want to win!

  46. I would definitely make a dip. My favorite is spinach & artichoke dip. I also think soup would look perfect in these wonderful little cocottes.

  47. I would love to make individual chicken pot pies or chili cornbread casseroles in these. Thanks for a great giveaway! :)

  48. I don’t have a specific recipe in mind, but it would definitely contain pumpkin. I am loving all these fall treats!

  49. I could use them for individual chicken pot pies, brownies, macaroni and cheese, so many things. So excited to see what I can come up with when I get to cook using these cute bake ware buddies!

  50. I’m in love for life with the little chocolate souffles with the liquid, hot, fudgy centers. That’s what I would make first, second, third, and fifth. :) 4th would be something savory.

  51. I’ve been eyeing these at Sur la Table, but they never seem to have the colors I want. I’d use these to serve dips at my next book club meeting :)

  52. I would make your sweet potato coconut milk soup in them. I would also try making a homemade chicken soup. These would be adorable ways to hold personal chicken pot pies, too, if I can find an egg-free, gluten-free, soy-free, and grain-free recipe (or somehow come up with my own!). Thanks. I would love to have these color my kitchen!

  53. These are so cute and I would use them for mac and cheese and desserts! Would love to have them and just use them for everything!!!

  54. Eeeeep I have been pining for something from Le Creuset for a long time! Can’t seem to bring myself to pay the price though!

  55. I will like to have those mini creuset but they are so expensive…:( that I can’t afford them, they are very nice to prepare soufflé in it for my daughter.Good luck for the winner of them.

  56. Mac and cheese!!! or your Pumpkin Cinnamon Overnight Pull-Apart French Toast with Vanilla Maple Butter!!

  57. Awesome giveaway, Averie! Mini cocottes are the best! I always use my teal one (mainly for photographic purposes) but I can always use more!

  58. I would make the browned butter cookie cups. That’s my favorite recipe from you and I’ve made it multiple times.

  59. I’m dying to make those deep dish chocolate chip cookies in these… Mmmm. Also, custards or bread pudding would be greattt in these

  60. these are so cute, just perfect for my husband & i. love the red. i think chicken pot pie, yummmm. thanks for the givaway

  61. These gorgeous mini-cocottes would be perfect for individual servings of apple crisp, or French onion soup, or lots of other things. I’m apple crazy these days, though, so I’d try apple crisps first.

  62. I LOVE these! Omg!! I would make stuffed peppers in this, quiche, chili, oh gosh…you name it! The colors are so awesome! :-)

  63. They are gorgeous and the recipe ideas you’ve offered are fun. These would make great gifts with one of those recipes inside (already made) and a typed copy of the recipe. Thanks for the opportunity to win these.

  64. I’m a huge fan of mini-casseroles! I have a make shift king ranch casserole recipe that would be perfect in all those little cocottes!

  65. The first thing I would make is tofu pot-pies! Immediately followed by mini crustless pumpkin pies. They are so beautiful! And make me hungry for all things fall.

  66. Oh my goodness, these are adorable! I had no clue they came in mini! Ahhhh now I know what I want to get for my apartment kitchen when I move :D That dark plum color & dark minty green are so pretty, haven’t seen those colors before :O The fact that they’re microwave safe makes me squee with happiness!

    1. Whoops! Meant to add that I make microwave oatmeal every morning, and love trying out different combination of mac&cheese dishes like http://cleverhousewife.com/2013/09/chicken-cordon-bleu-casserole/ & http://joyful-mommas-kitchen.blogspot.com/2013/04/chicken-and-green-chili-pasta.html?spref=fb –which are both good.

      Also, if you’ve never tried Paula Deens Bacon Pimento Mac&cheese then you are missing out! It’s SO GOOD, but very rich. I’m talking serious comfort food here > http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/paula-deen/bacon-pimento-macaroni-and-cheese-recipe/index.html

  67. I would love to do chicken pot pie as one thing. I’m not sure what else I would make, but that would probably be the first thing. I’d love to have a small pie all to myself :-)

  68. I love your blog (and photography)!

    Anyways, there are so many things you could make in them and I love the list you gave! The idea of mini Cocottes is great because you could make two soups at once! And I would love to try a few fruit cobblers in these!

  69. I want to try the apple crumble recipe and the cookies you posted right now. Would love these, have drooped over then quite often

  70. Wow, those are such pretty colors and so many tasty ideas for what to make in them! Flan is a good one!

  71. I’d use them for any side and some desserts! Gravy, Broccoli Cheese Casserole, Homeade Macaroni to name a few!

  72. I would probably use them for soups or individual pot pies. I don’t know why little things always look adorable to me.

  73. What is there that you can’t cook in there?! ;D I would start with something good and hearty— like baked stew with biscuits on top— or something like that!

  74. OMG! These are to die for and so cute. They will totally go with my rainbow kitchen and I would use them ALL OF THE TIME!

  75. I have always wanted one of the fun dishes in red or purple! I would make so many things from Mac and cheese to the dips and would love to try the big chocolate chip peanut butter skillet cookie. And maybe try some cornbread!

  76. oh, spinach artichoke dip would look/taste fabulous in there. cookies would be great, too! If I wasn’t feeling so stuffed up right now, I might be able to make a really long list:)

  77. I would make mac n cheese and enchiladas and many soups. this would be lovely to win as I am just moving in with my boyfriend and we have no kitchen supplies at the moment

  78. These were on my Christmas wish list last year! I didn’t get them. I would use them for all of the vegetable side dishes my mother-in-law and I love, but no one else at the Sunday Dinner table enjoy!

  79. I would love to use these to make baked eggs – oeffs en cocotte! One of my favorite breakfast treats! I don’t have a link but recommend the recipe in Rachel Khoo’s “The Little Paris Kitchen.” And I agree – these are really adorable!

  80. I can see making little potpies and even baked egg recipes in my future… yuuummmmm.. I want them I want them :)

  81. These are so cute! Thank you for the chance to win them! I love Le Creuset! These would be a perfect size for little desserts!

  82. Honestly I would love to try some of the recipes you have posted. But on the other hand I would love to make mini chicken pot pies

  83. My first thought was warm, cheesy pizza dip, but your deep dish chocolate chip cookies might have to come first on the list!

  84. They would be great to serve sides in and keep them warm while at the dinner table. Thanksgiving is coming up so I’m thinking of a warm veggie side.

  85. I love your blog. You show amazing food. I was just saying how I would like an adult version of these little beauties!

  86. I’ve already been daydreaming about your browned butter chocolate chip cookie cups… so why not make them in cocotte cups?! That’s what I’d do first, for sure.

  87. For Fall: pumpkin soup. For any time: individual mac & cheeses for the bf and I so I could add lots of veggies to mine and extra cheese to his!

  88. Those are so cute! I would definitely make little baked french toasts or oatmeals – I’d love to eat my breakfast out of those!

  89. They are so pretty it would be hard to mess them up…but I would . lol I would make a Lovely Casserole that my family would devour! ;)

  90. I would use it for so many things, something like everyone getting their own little customized pit of deliciousness. everyone ends up happy! :D

    I guess the first thing I would make would be chocolate lava cakes and topped with ice-cream while they are still warm. :D

  91. These look perfect for me! I would love to make soup for my boyfriend and I in these. Always looking for smaller cookware since there’s just the two of us.

  92. This is a perfect dish to use when making authentic Moroccan Tagines! I would use this dish to make a Potato, Fennel & Pea tagine dish or a thick an hearty stew called “Chorba” full of vermicelli, spices and veggies! Mm, the possibilities are endless!

  93. Mini Flourless Chocolate Cakes. I’ve been wanting some smaller dishes to make that in, and these would be perfect!

  94. I would use this for everything, especially as I am living on my own right now, and using huge pots is such a waste.

  95. What a great giveaway! We had these on our wedding registry, but they sold out! Would love to try making some molten cakes with these. Adorable!

  96. My favorite hot dip is a reuben dip, so I think that would’ve have to be the first adventure in these little guys!

  97. I love these things! And your ideas of things to use them with look delicious! So many great give aways, I had to get with the picture and join face book and Pinterest . I am always so busy baking all your recipes but I want some of your give away items lol! Right now I’m hooked on the twix cookies but changing add ins, my freezer is quite stocked! Loved your kit kat bars! Made those Tuesday night and took to work Wednesday where they were devoured! I could write all day about my reviews of your recipes, but I think I’ll just stop here and say thank you!! And let you know I give your site name out as much as possible :))

  98. I would bake mini pasta dishes such as lasagna. This size is perfect now that our household is down to just my husband and myself.

  99. Individual lasagnas … my boys have such different tastes that I often have to make two versions of the same dish – these little cuties would come in handy :)

  100. They are adorable! I’ve been wanting these mini cocottes for a while – I hope I win!!

  101. I would love to make molten chocolate cake or deep-dish cookies in these cocottes. Such an adorable presentation! They would also be great for serving French onion soup!

  102. I would make either my famous bean dip or some sort of pumpkin dip (I have never tried that before but it sounds like it could be a good idea!).

  103. I’m sure I have a ton of recipes that would be perfect baked in these! So, while I pore over my many recipe binders, I will gaze lovingly at my adorable mini cocettes.

  104. Le Creuset stuff is SO pretty! My kids would love these. I love these for warm spinach dip, cheese fondue and your sweet potato coconut soup sounds amazing!

  105. To be honest – I really want to make french onion soup and serve them in the mini cocottes!!! They are adorable. :)

  106. Oh, I have no idea! I’ve never baked with them before! But I’d definitely try out a baked good, maybe one of the cookies/cakes you posted? Nothing can stop me from making my sweets :) That Pumpkin Pull Apart Bread looks delicious! Thanks for the giveaway!!!

  107. So many possibilities, I think I would use them most for different types of crisps, apple/pear/pumpkin, etc.

  108. French Onion Soup! It is something my Dad used to get when we would go out to eat as a kid and since then it has been the epitome of adulthood…now that I’m mostly an adult now, I still love it and feel so grown up everytime I eat it.
