maple-bourbon-pecan macaroons and a giveaway


Note: This drawing is now closed. There are a lot of things I love about The Macaroon Bible by Dan Cohen, founder of Danny Macaroons. The biggest thing is that macaroons are naturally gluten-free. Another awesome thing is that they’re so simple to make. Lastly, I totally love that the basic recipe in the book for making coconut macaroons is so easily adaptable. I’ve been baking a lot from the book over the past year while we were getting it ready for publication, and you almost can’t go wrong with these recipes. If you feel like adding nuts, it’s no problem. Feel like dipping them in chocolate? That’s easy too. So when my girlfriend and I decided to bake up a batch of macaroons the other day, we couldn’t quite agree on which recipe to try. The solution was easy — start with one of Dan’s great recipes and then tweak it a bit. The result were these super-moist and oh-so-yummy Maple-Bourbon-Pecan Macaroons. I think Dan would approve.


If you happen to be still reading this, you can simply post a comment below, and you will be added into a drawing to possibly win a copy of the book. I will be choosing one winner (US and Canada residents only, please) on Friday, October 11th at midnight. Good luck!

    I’ve been wanting to make Macaroons for a long time!
    These photos and hopefully the book will be another inspiration to do so!

    I’m so excited about the release of The Macaroon Bible! I ran into your blog after seeing a link to it on Instagram. I’ve recently adopted a paleo lifestyle and have been looking for gluten-free dessert alternatives — one being macaroons which I’ve grown up making with my mom and sister. Baking them brings back some pretty sweet childhood memories. I’ve been experimenting in the kitchen with healthier ingredients like unsweetened shredded coconut, grade B maple syrup, and various nut butters without sacrificing overall taste and decadence. Anyways, I already have this in my Amazon queue so winning a copy of this book would just be a bonus and will make fantastic x-mas presents. Thanks for sharing!
