Kate Hudson is nothing if not innovative in the kitchen. From developing her own smoothie supplements to figuring out the fastest way to steam potatoes—it involves this $415 contraption—the actor is always cooking up something. When she shared a recipe for mini peach pies with her followers on Instagram, we found ourselves instantly craving the sweet, summery dish, but mostly we were in awe of the hardworking cookware item we clocked in her post.

Behold: the Staub mini cocotte. These small baking dishes are perfect for individual desserts. For a fresh take on Hudson’s go-to, try this cherry-almond crisp, originally whipped up by Joanna Gaines—a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top makes it the perfect summertime treat. If you don’t have much of a sweet tooth, the scaled-down ceramics are also great for plenty of savory oven recipes. The most famous is probably eggs en cocotte (baked eggs with ham and cheese), but you can also make any kind of quiche, gratin, or soufflé your heart desires in these delightful little pieces. For the ultimate comfort food treat, we strongly recommend putting this mac and cheese in your recipe rotation.
